May 4, 2011 – SAF Announces Directional Sanded Extrusion Finishes

brushedAtlanta, GA – 4 May 2011 – SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., Inc.) announces the availability of a directional sanded, also called ‘brushed’, finish on many of their stock aluminum extrusions. SAF has acquired a drum sanding machine that can apply a directionally sanded finish on the outside, flat surfaces of tubes, channels, angles and bars. This finish is not available on any round tubes or the inside of any extrusions because it is applied with a drum sander. SAF can also provide this directional finish on flat sheets and brake metal.

The new surface finish is applied prior to anodizing and adds about two weeks to a typical next-day-out anodized extrusion service. For quotes, orders and questions regarding brushed or sanded aluminum extrusions please call the SAF Atlanta Sales and Customer Service team at 1-800-241-7429 or 404-355-1560.
