Why Bead Blast Stainless Steel?

Jan. 17, 2023

Bead blasting provides a consistent matte finish that contrasts well with other highly polished finishes.


When producing a high-quality stainless steel fabrication, the finish is just as important as the care and precision taken during the cutting, welding and other aspects of the fabrication process.


Bead blasting is usually the last (or second-to-last if the fabrication is to be painted) part of the fabrication process and it is vital that it is carried out thoroughly and correctly, especially if the product is to be used in the food, beverage, medical or pharmaceutical industries, where it is critically important that all surfaces have a sanitary finish and are hygienic.


The five main benefits of bead blasting for stainless steel are:

Uniform, Non-Directional Finish

Bead blasting provides a consistent matte finish that contrasts well with other highly polished finishes.


Improve Stress Corrosion Resistance

The peening action of bead blasting stainless steels will cause them to both work harden and stress relieve the metal. This can improve the stress corrosion cracking resistance on Stainless Steel Bead Blasted sheet.


No Carbon Contamination

The blast booth and media are nonferrous zones. Carbon steel parts are never processed in the blast booths, and the blast media is monitored for any outside contamination.


Bead Blast Finish

The Bead Blasted Stainless Steel Sheet is a great interior and exterior building decoration and elevator decoration. The process hides small surface defects from material handling and gives a beautiful uniform finish. The surface roughness can be less then 1.0 µm


Spray Pickling & Blasting

It is desirable to spray pickle Decorative Stainless Steel bead blasted Sheets to remove all weld discoloration and the chromium depleted layer, so that the corrosion resistance of the stainless is fully restored.
