I can't find the translation of 'strichmatt'in english.
It's a kind of finish of aluminium edges.
It's a description of their features:
"Aluminium, Strichmatt, Natur"
This is the only context I have.
The following sentence is:
"Aluminium, Feinmatt, Natur"
Thanks again!

Coarse brushed [finish]
Explanation:
There are various finishes made with metal bristled brush wheels utilizing different bristle materials and thicknesses, wheel speeds and feed speeds. A hard and thick steel bristle will give a coarse finish while a fine flexible thin bristle, even made from steel will give a much finer one. (Based on actual metal casting and finishing production line)
