Polishing & Plastic Coating


Metal Supplies provide a quick turnaround Polishing and Plastic Coating service to suit all your requirements, available to both our commercial and domestic customers. We supply metal products and offer our services to customers across the UK and internationally.


Some of the most popular materials we are asked to polish are Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Copper and Brass.

There are many polishing finishes that can be achieved, from 180 grit up to 600 grit, including special finishes such as circular polishing

Two popular examples are:

Satin Finish – Also known as Brushed, Grain or Dull Polished. This gives the material a distinctive look, as it retains some of the materials metallic lustre. It is achieved by a pattern of very fine small scratches running in the same direction forming a (soft sheen) grain. This is the most popular surface finish we are asked for, because of it’s hard wearing durability, it is also very low maintenance as fingerprints and even dirt and grime won’t often show through.

Bright Polished – Also known as Mirror polished. This is our second most popular finish and gives the material a highly polished reflective finish that can be simply stunning. Although it wares well it can be scratched and is susceptible to finger prints, subject to usage (some maintenance may be required).

Metal Supplies are able to offer (all faces, all edges) full Auto-Polishing for Sheets, Tubes, Angles and Box Sections as well as Hand Polishing. This approach enables us to offer to our customers the ability to polish very fine items that a fully automatic polisher would simply not be able to cope with, such as very small Flat Bars and Angles. We are also able to offer to our customers full edge polishing, as well as the ability to polish the internal faces of these finer Angles and Channels. Our Hand Polishing Service is also available for machined and bespoke items as well as our flanges and fittings.

Plastic Coating Services

Metal Supplies carry a wide range of pre-polished Sheets and Plates that are finished and ready for dispatch in a range of PC1 (one side) and PC2 (both sides) poly coatings, including Laser Coating, for use in modern Laser Cutters. We also place our pre-polished Tubes and Box Sections in plastic sleeves immediately after polishing giving them protection both in storage and dispatch. This service is also available to our customers, outside of normal parameters, upon request.
