|Finish Code||Processing Method and Application||Surface Condition|
|No.1||This finish is created through hot rolling, heat treatment and pickling. It is ideal for materials to be cold-rolled, industrial tanks and chemical facilities.|
|No.2D||This finish is not reflective and is made through cold rolling, heat treatment and pickling. Its typical uses include petrochemical plants, auto parts, construction materials and pipes.|
|No.2B||This finish is made by applying a light cold rolling pass to No.2D. It is more reflective and less rough and provides better mechanical properties than No.2D. It is commonly used for almost all applications.|
|No.3||This finish is made through polishing with 100-120 grit abrasives. Major applications are those requiring gorgeous reflective appearances, such as architectural materials, electronics and kitchen appliances.|
|No.4||This finish is made through polishing with 150-180 grit abrasives. High grit numbers create finer polishing lines and more reflective finishes than No.3. This finish is widely used for bathtubs, architectural materials and food processing.|
|HL||Featuring a series of patterns, this finish is made through polishing with moderate grit abrasives. Its common uses include sashes, doors or other panels of buildings.|
|BA||This finish is made through cold rolling, bright annealing, heat treatment and then a light cold rolling pass. It is widely used for applications where a highly reflective surface is desired, including home appliances, small mirrors, kitchen appliances and architectural materials.|
|DULL||A dull surface is a matte finish produced by grinding with a fine rugged roll. Widely used for the exterior and interior of trains and buildings that require reduced light reflection.|
