Q. Looking for a catalog or information on the different types of finishes available. By this I mean, what is simple anodized, bright polished, ultra polished, grain patterns. What is the best source for this information?

A. Lynn, try contacting "Metal Finishing Magazine" at the following depending on your level of interest, you might want to subscribe to the annual Metal Finishing Guidebook. I've been a satisfied member for years.

There are several other worthy organizations and technical authorities providing a broad range of related subjects, literature and process information. If MF doesn't get the job done for you, let me know I can dig up a few more.
