I guess you mean you don't want to use image files as textures. proceduals
are textures as well ;)

Anyway. I guess what you're looking for are blurred reflections. You maybe
want to have a look here:
it's written for povray 3.5 and if i remember right i had problems to run
this code with a newer version but the idea behind it remains the same.
Brushed metal effects can be achieved by an uneven scaling of the normal

In addition or if you get problems i recommend a search for blurred
reflection. This has been a topic here a couple of times!
Hope this helps.
Regards Roman
