Titanium Nitride (TiN) and Light Interference Coloring (LIC) are extremely hard, inert, thin, and transparent molecular coatings that protect and beautify stainless. TiN and LIC coatings are available in golds, bronzes, blues and blacks. Colored stainless steel is available in various finishes, including: mirror, satin, non-directional, and bead blast.
(6WL® pattern used in samples below. Colored stainless steel is available in all Rigidized® Metals patterns.) *Please note: Representations of samples shown may vary slightly from actual product specifications and/or colors. For complete accuracy, please request a sample.
Note: Textured samples below are shown in Rigidized® Metals' pattern 6WL® as an example texture; most patterns are available.
Please note that ATI 2003 InvariMatte® Walnut cannot be deep textured.
Additionally, there will be (2) hanger holes about 1/4" from the edge on the lateral side. This cannot be avoided and should be considered into your design.
The highlighting process polishes the tops of Rigidized® Metals' textures to expose the base metal and can be applied to all colored and powder coated Rigidized® Metals textures. Powder coatings are extremely durable, electronically charged and baked on polyurethane enamels. Powder coating colors include RAL colors, transparencies, and special textured finishes.
Recommended gauges: .024", .029", .036"(other gauges & sizes may be available upon specific applications)
All highlighted metals can be produced in any color. For consistency, we use and recommend the RAL color system since our recommended method of applying paint is powder coating. See RALcolor.com for all options.
Color can vary with base metals like copper, aluminum and zinc.
All base metals are only available in Rigidized® Metals patterns.
*Copper is a reddish-colored metal, and will patina over time. **Brass is the term used for alloys of copper and zinc. Brass will patina over time.
***Muntz metal is a form of alpha-beta brass with about 40% zinc and 60% copper. It's primary benefit is that it is a more corrosive resistant brass. Available in both mill and satin finish, muntz will patina over time.
On several finishes and micro textures, we also offer Fine Guard 3 (FG3), an anti-fingerprint coating available on several stainless steel finishes, including InvariBlend® (hairline) and InvariWisp (vibration), as well as on some colorized finishes.
