Another value added service offered by E & T Plastics is polishing. We can add the finishing touch to your parts with the beauty of a highly polished Edge. There are several different techniques that we offer including Diamond Edge polishing, Flame Polishing, Buff Polishing and laser polishing.
- Diamond Edge Polish: this is a basic automatic machine polish which can be applied to any straight edge. Machine polishing is fast and inexpensive and leaves a high luster. It is the most popular, fastest and competitively priced alternative we supply.
- Flame Polish: this process is performed by our highly skilled craftsmen with a torch that is carefully drawn over the edge of the material and will leave a beautiful lustrous polish and slightly softened edges. Pre-sanding the edge before flaming will leave a perfect clear edge polish.
- Buff Polishing: This process is by far our highest quality polish. Buff polishing is truly a work of art and is performed by our trained craftsmen to deliver a perfectly polished edge. If you are looking for a true “gem” this is the choice.
- Laser Polish: Laser polishing is a machine polish and is created on one of our state of the art
Laser machinery. Lasers can cut intricate patterns and shapes and as a natural byproduct of the laser process leaves behind a beautiful lustrous polished edge. You can learn more about laser cutting in our Laser Cutting section.
