What Industries Use Polished Aluminum Products?
Aluminum is a versatile metal that is available in a wide range of finishes, including both satin and mirror polished options. Mirror finish aluminum products are commonly used for decorative and aesthetic purposes, such as in architecture projects, in art and design, and for interior ornamentation, such as decorative railings or elevator interiors. On the other hand, satin aluminum finishes are commonly seen in industries where the aluminum is being used for its functional properties, such as for electronics, aerospace parts, construction, and the automotive sector.
Cleaning Polished Aluminum
In order to clean aluminum that is not painted, mix a small amount of mild detergent with warm water. Apply with a clean washcloth or sponge. For the detergent, use something along the lines of dishwashing liquid. Many liquid hand soaps will also work fine for this type of cleaning job.
Generally, it is not a good idea to use abrasive pads or cleaners on polished aluminum, as the metal will scratch easily. If you must clean polished aluminum using some type of abrasive, try applying baking soda to the surface and then rubbing with a moist cloth. This will work as well as most scouring pads and is less likely to create deep scratches on the surface.
