finish of steel

Marilee C
Hello! Can you please tell me what type of finish was used on this? It appears to be hot rolled steel but I just left a steel manufacturer and all their rolled steel was darker. Thanks in advance for any specifics you can provide!

    It looks like cold rolled steel to me. Hot rolled steel has mill scale on it, thus the darker color. Cold rolled tends to be smoother and a light grey like this. This also has been lightly buffed and clear coated. Hope this helps.

    I love the look of this. With the heat, is there anything to worry about with the clear coat? What do you use?

    There are a couple of high-heat clear coats on the market. Sculpt Nouvea makes one we use frequently. Another alternative is religiously applying a paste wax- about once a month. This creates a beautiful finish and is one of our favorites to use for interior ironwork. Check out our website for multiple examples.
