Bead blasted stainless steel: a new material for modern ceilings

What exactly sets bead-blasted stainless steel apart from traditional ceiling materials? Well, first and foremost, its stunning visual appeal cannot be ignored.

The bead-blasting process creates a textured surface that adds depth and dimension to any space. This subtle yet eye-catching finish makes a powerful statement without overpowering the overall aesthetic.

But it is not just about looks – bead-blasted stainless steel offers several practical benefits. For one, it is highly durable and corrosion-resistant, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. It can easily withstand moisture, temperature changes, and even harsh chemicals.

Additionally, this material requires minimal maintenance compared to other options on the market. A quick wipe-down with mild soap and water is usually all needed to keep your bead-blasted stainless steel ceiling pristine year after year.

Furthermore, installing a bead blasted stainless steel ceiling opens up endless possibilities in terms of customization. Whether you prefer a sleek matte finish or a more reflective surface, various options are available to suit your specific design vision.

Lastly, bead blasted stainless steel ceilings are environmentally friendly as they are made from recycled materials. By choosing this sustainable option, you contribute to reducing waste and minimizing your carbon footprint.

With all these advantages combined – from its striking appearance to its durability and low maintenance requirements – it is no wonder that bead-blasted stainless steel has quickly become the new material of choice for modern ceilings.

4 kinds of bead blasted stainless steel ceilings

Bead blasted stainless steel ceilings offer a stunning and contemporary look to any space. With their unique textured surfaces, these ceilings are visually appealing and highly functional. Let us look closer at five different bead-blasted surfaces of stainless steel ceilings that can transform your space into a work of art.

There are 4 kinds of sandblasted surfaces that can be used for stainless steel ceilings. They are very fine-grain finish, fine grain finish, satin finish, and coarse grain finish.

Very fine grain finish

The very fine grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is a type of surface finish that is achieved by using very small particles, such as micro glass beads or ceramic media, to blast the surface of the stainless steel at low pressure.

The size of the blasting media is typically smaller than 100 microns in diameter, which creates a very fine and shallow texture on the stainless steel surface. It is silky and smooth to the touch.

Very fine grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is often used in high-end applications where a smooth and refined appearance is desired. It is commonly used in aerospace, medical, and electronics industries, requiring a non-reflective and blemish-free surface.

The very fine grain finish is also popular in high-end consumer products such as watches, jewelry, and luxury goods.

Fine grain finish

Fine grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is another type of surface finish that is blasted by using small spherical particles. Unlike the satin finish, the fine grain finish is achieved using smaller-sized blasting media and higher blasting pressure.

Fine grain finish has an incredibly refined texture that exudes refinement and class. It is well-suited for minimalist designs and high-end consumer products, such as handrails, hotel ceilings, panels, watches, and jewelry.

Overall, the fine grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is a versatile and attractive surface finish that can be customized to suit a wide range of applications and design preferences.

Satin finish

Satin bead-blasted finish is a uniform, matte, and non-directional mechanical surface with a satin aesthetic and little reflectivity. When put under the strong sun, the sunlight makes it appear bright and deep. And low sun makes it glow purple and reddish silver.

The size of the blasting media determines the size of the pitting or texture on the surface of the stainless steel, while the blasting pressure affects the depth of the pitting. The satin finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is achieved by using medium-sized spherical particles (such as glass beads or ceramic media) and a moderate blasting pressure to blast the stainless steel surface.

Offering a subtle sheen, satin bead-blasted stainless steel is popular in various applications, including ceilings, architectural, decorative, and industrial. They are an excellent choice for residential projects seeking modern elegance.

In addition, when applying an anti-fingerprint coating to the substrate, the satin bead-blasted stainless steel is also resistant to fingerprints and smudges, making it a practical choice for high-traffic areas.

Coarse grain finish

We can create a coarse grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel by using larger spherical particles, such as aluminum oxide or steel shot, to blast the surface of the stainless steel.

It will create deeper and more pronounced pits or textures on the stainless steel surface, resulting in a rougher, more textured appearance.

Coarse grain finish of bead-blasted stainless steel is often used in applications where a more rugged or industrial look is desired, such as machinery, automotive parts, and tools.

It is also used in architectural applications, adding a unique texture to ceilings, walls, floors, and outdoor structures.

While the coarse grain finish may not be as smooth or refined as the fine grain or satin finishes, it adds an element of visual interest while still maintaining the sleekness associated with stainless steel ceilings.
