Other finishes applied to this metal - available for fabricated items only:

Stainless steel with satin finish

Satin finish is a type of finish applied on stainless steel 2B usually after fabrication of counter tops. The idea behind this, is to allow for a nice blend, where welds are not as visible, giving the part fabricated the appearance of a solid piece. In counter tops, a satin finish is a nice alternative to a 2B finish, because a 2B material comes with no protective film, meaning it has some scratches from the factory and it also gets scratched during production. In any case, a counter top will get scratched with usage, which will look normal after a while, but it will be very noticeable at first. A satin finish makes it so these new scratches are not nearly as visible.
