What are brushed aluminum sheets?

Brushed aluminum sheet is a type of decorative aluminum sheet that is made from aluminum as the base material and features a brushed texture on the surface. There are two different manufacturing processes for brushed aluminum sheet. One is called physical brushing, which involves using mechanical friction or extrusion on the surface of the aluminum sheet to create straight lines. The other process is known as paint brushing, where the brushed texture is directly printed on the aluminum sheet using multiple layers of paint.

What is physical brushing?

Physical brushing can be done directly on the surface of polished aluminum sheets or on the surface of aluminum sheets that have been spray-painted. This process gives the brushed sheet different colors, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the aluminum.

Types of brushed patterns:

Brushed patterns can be created according to decorative needs, including straight lines, cross lines, random patterns, threads, waves, and spirals:

Straight-line brushing:

Straight-line brushing refers to the process of creating straight lines on the surface of the aluminum sheet through mechanical friction. There are two types of straight-line brushing: continuous lines and interrupted lines. Continuous lines can be obtained by using a scouring pad or a stainless steel brush to continuously and horizontally rub the surface of the aluminum sheet, while changing the diameter of the stainless steel brush wires can produce different thicknesses of lines. Interrupted lines are usually produced using brushing machines or scratch machines.

Cross-line brushing:

Cross-line brushing is typically done using brushing machines or scratch machines. The aluminum or aluminum alloy sheet passes through two sets of rollers, resulting in a cross pattern pressed onto the surface of the aluminum sheet.

Random pattern brushing:

Random pattern brushing is achieved by moving the aluminum sheet back and forth, left and right under a high-speed rotating copper wire brush. This creates an irregular and subtle matte pattern. This type of brushing requires higher surface quality for the aluminum or aluminum alloy sheet.

Wavy pattern:

Wavy patterns are typically obtained using brushing machines or scratch machines. By utilizing the axial movement of the upper grinding rollers, the aluminum or aluminum alloy sheet surface is brushed to create a wavy pattern.

Spiral pattern:

Also known as spiral polishing, this technique involves using cylindrical felt or nylon wheels mounted on a drilling machine. A mixture of kerosene and polishing paste is applied to the aluminum or aluminum alloy sheet surface. By rotating and polishing the sheet, a spiral pattern is obtained. This technique is commonly used for decorative processing of round signs and small decorative dials.

Thread pattern:

To create a thread pattern, a small motor with a circular felt pad is fixed at an angle of approximately 60 degrees to the edge of a table. A dragging plate with a fixed aluminum sheet is used, and a polyester film with a straight edge is attached to the dragging plate to restrict the thread pitch. By combining the rotation of the felt pad with the linear movement of the dragging plate, a thread pattern with uniform width is produced on the surface of the aluminum sheet. Of course, the sheet needs to be brushed before electroplating.

Colors of brushed aluminum sheet:

There are various colors available for double-sided brushed aluminum sheets, including antique bronze, green, stainless steel, blue, red, silver, gold, bronze, black, pink, brass, bronze green, iron tree silver flower, matte, and more. The market also offers series of painted brushed aluminum and printed brushed aluminum.

These sheets can be incorporated into architectural elements such as façades, cladding, and roofing systems. The sleek and modern appearance of brushed aluminum complements contemporary architectural styles, adding a touch of sophistication to any structure.


The brushed texture adds depth and dimension to the metal surface, creating a visually striking effect. Whether used as a background or a focal point, brushed aluminum sheets can instantly elevate the overall design of any space.

They are resistant to corrosion, weathering, and fading, ensuring their longevity even in challenging environments.

Our brushed aluminum sheets are also available in laminate form, making them suitable for various applications. The aluminum laminate sheets combine the durability of aluminum with the design versatility of laminate, offering a perfect balance of style and functionality.


Brushed aluminum sheets are widely used in various fields such as brushed aluminum-plastic panels, fireproof panels, aluminum frames, integrated ceilings, high-end cabinets, high-quality doors and windows, veneer panels, signage, lighting fixtures, interior and exterior decoration, household appliances, luggage, gifts, furniture, electronic consumer goods, and more.
