NOTES:
1. Uniformly abraded and polished finishes are more prone to showing scratches, especially when perpendicular to the grain. Complete re-graining of the entire surface may be necessary in extreme situations.

The Self-Repair Mechanism of Stainless Steel


Repair Mechanism of Stainless Steel

The chromium in stainless steel alloys forms a thin, transparent "passive layer" on the surface of the metal. Although this protective layer is only a few atoms thick, it seals the stainless steel below from the environment. In the presence of oxygen from air or water, it instantaneously reforms if it is damaged. The passive layer is the reason why stainless steel does not require any coating or other form of external corrosion protection.

Important Facts About Stiles Patina Finishes


Patina finishes offer a natural color variation as opposed to paint or anodizing. The irregular patterns, color intensities and substrate metal all play a part in the ambience of a patina finish. In addition, each individual artist will produce a slightly different "application signature" to the piece. If you require a finish that is perfectly uniform in appearance, we suggest you specify a Tnemec or powder coated finish rather than a patina (metallic paints and powders available).

Optional Clear Coat


An optional high-performance factory-applied clear coat is available in satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss sheens. NOTE: Illustrations above may differ slightly from actual finishes. Finish samples will be provided for approval at time of order. Special finishes available - contact factory for more information.
