Satin Aluminum Finish
Aluminum is an extremely versatile, durable, and lightweight metal, unique properties that have led to its status as one of the most commonly used metals in the world. While aluminum mirror finishes are typically favored for decorative applications, aluminum is also available in a host of satin finish options, which are highly favored for many practical use cases.
At Polished Metals, we’re equipped to provide the precise aluminum finishing services you need at scale, on time, and within your budget.

What Industries Use Satin Aluminum Products?
Satin aluminum is most commonly seen in industries where the aluminum is being used for its functional, rather than aesthetic, properties. However, some aluminum satin finish options are also popular for decorative applications as well. Here are some industries where aluminum is an especially popular choice.
- Transportation – The automotive sector is one of the top users of aluminum, due to the metal’s excellent durability and light weight.
- Electronics – In addition to its lightweight and durable properties, aluminum is also favored for electronics as it is highly conductive.
- Aerospace – In aerospace manufacturing, aluminum is critical for many components due to its tensile strength at certain extreme temperatures.
- Construction – Satin finish aluminum products may be used for a wide variety of products used in construction, including roofing, siding, windows, HVAC components, and exterior paneling, among many other uses.

“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.”Architecture and Design

“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.”Architecture and Design
