2B Surface Finish Stainless Steel
2B surface finished description

Cold rolled, heat treated, pickled, skin passed.
The material is cold rolled, softened and descaled as in the case of the 2D finish and then receives a final light pass on polished rolls called a ‘skin pass’ or ‘pinch pass’.  The material remains grey in appearance but the effect of this final pass on polished rolls is to produce a smoother, brighter surface than the 2D finish.  This is the general purpose, cold rolled finish and it is suitable for a wide range of applications where stainless steel is specified.  It is also suitable for a wide range of subsequent polishing processes such as satin finishing. Typical uses for a standard 2B finish include non-decorative or functional sheet metal products, industrial refrigeration equipment, chemical plant and plumbing fixtures.

Surface Finished Introduction

Surface finish is an important element in any specification of stainless steel regardless of the intended use.  For those applications where appearance is important, finish is a design element and must be specified.  In nondecorative applications the surface finish may have implications for friction, wear, maintenance or corrosion resistance and must, therefore, also be carefully chosen and clearly specified.
The choice of finish should never be left to the supplier, or the specification loosely worded, such as “Type 304 with a 180 grit finish”.  The finish should be properly identified by a standard industry designation or by a trade name, e.g. OPTISHEEN®.

Finishes and Design

There are a wide range of decorative finishes available; therefore, it is important to pay close attention to the selection of the most appropriate finish for the application required.  For highly visible applications the appearance of stainless steel is a critical design element and a misunderstanding of the wrong finish can alter the desired effect.  In commercial and hygienic applications, such as restaurants and hospitals, properly finished stainless steel is easier to keep clean.  In consumer products, such as catering equipment, the lustre from a well polished sheet of stainless steel has strong sales appeal.
In addition to the visual appearance of polished stainless steel there are a number of functional considerations.  In sanitary applications correctly polished stainless steel not only looks good but it helps to reduce the risk of bacteria being retained by the material.
In aggressive environments, such as in the nuclear or offshore industries, a correctly polished stainless steel surface has a better resistance to corrosion than a surface that is roughly or badly polished.  A smooth surface is less susceptible to an accumulation of deposits and stainless, which often become focal points for localised corrosion.  All stainless steel finishes perform better when cleaned and maintained and details of correct cleaning procedures may be found in our publication, “The Cleaning and Maintenance of Stainless Steel”.
