Aluminum can be given many different types of finishes; from rough or patterned to a mirror finish. This can be accomplished with a variety of chemical and mechanical processes. The chemical processes include etching, bright dipping (also known as chemical polishing) and anodizing. Mechanical finishes can be achieved by sanding, polishing, buffing, tumbling, burnishing, abrasive blasting, or glass bead blasting.
