Mirror Finish Aluminum

Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the world. Highly favored for its functional properties, including its lightweight nature and high conductivity, mirror finish aluminum is also often featured in designs, including for architecture, interior design, and even sculptures and other artwork. 

At Polished Metals, we’ve polished numerous aluminum products to a beautiful mirror shine for clients across many industries. With our in-house metal finishing facility, we’re equipped to provide the precise aluminum finishing services you need at scale, on time, and within your budget.

What Industries Use Mirror Polished Aluminum Products?

Where satin aluminum typically sees more functional use cases, mirror finish aluminum products are commonly used for decorative and aesthetic purposes across various industries. However, there are also practical reasons to choose a mirror finish for aluminum metal products. Here are the most common industries where these finishes are used with aluminum:

  • Architecture – Aluminum is highly favored for use in architectural metal products where the end goal is a specific (and often reflective) appearance that will resist tarnishing over time. As aluminum does not rust or tarnish and has excellent corrosion resistance, it is often the sheet metal of choice for building exteriors. 
  • Art and Design – Aluminum is a favored choice for many artists and sculptors who work with metal, as aluminum is highly malleable and amenable to mirror finish options. 
  • Interior Ornamentation – Mirror finishes are commonly used for external-facing components of building interiors. This often includes railings, elevator interiors, escalators, decorative tubing, and other metal products.

“I have worked with Polished Metals periodically throughout my 18 year carrier in the custom metal fabrication industry. They have been a consistent, reliable vendor for me both in regards to informational needs and as a product supplier. Quotes are often required to be turned around by me very quickly and Bob Gunther at Polished Metals sends me pricing and lead-times extremely fast. Our product arrives when we are told it will and if there are any delays (which does not happen often) we are informed ahead of time, which is appreciated. Product arrives undamaged and is of good quality 99% of the time and when there is an issue with damage or defects Polished Metals responds quickly and makes things right quickly. I highly suggest using Polished Metals for your quality metal needs.”

“Our company produces and installs complex high-end projects in New York City. Procuring the materials for projects like the Edge Observation Deck at Hudson Yards can be extremely involved. Polished Metals exceeded our requirements for all our architectural metal needs on this and many other demanding NYC projects. Over the years they have provided everything from raw material to complex fabricated components for our installations. The key to our relationship has been outstanding communication and trust. As anyone in the construction industry knows things can change in an instant, how a company responds to those changes is critical. Mary and the whole team at Polished Metals have shown that they not only respond but have come through for us time and again.”

“Polished Metals has been a Preferred Vendor of ours for over a decade. Our corporate philosophy dictates that we have Alternate or Secondary Supplier for all product, with the exception of #8 Mirror Polished Stainless Steel. We’ve tried to qualify other suppliers to no avail, as none of them can compete in any of the critical categories. The Customer Support provided by Bob Gunther cannot be replicated, pricing is fair, delivery is always on-time and quality is fantastic. As the Corporate Purchasing Manager for the last 7 years, not once have I had a negative experience with Polished Metals. I can’t say enough good things about them.”
