What is the difference between Stalazzo, brushed and unpolished?

Unpolished (as welded) is a surface condition without additional surface treatments, meant for our Ferritic tubes, Imperial sized Austenitic tubes and bigger Austenitic and Duplex tubes (> 100x100x6 mm). Stalazzo is is a term we use for a surface condition that has been grinded with flap discs, available in dimension range 25x25x1,2 – 100x100x6. Brushed is similar to Stalazzo but used in our HF production lines where production speed is much faster compared to laser/TIG/plasma welding.
