About Contrarian Micro Textures
Since 2001, Contrarian Micro Textures, by Rigidized® Metals Corporation, has been helping architects, panel manufacturers, fabricators and contractors succeed in creating sustainable buildings with high performance flat rolled metals, including stainless steel, titanium and other metals, specifically engineered for architectural applications. We manufacture, distribute, and provide specification/metallurgical support for an unrivaled selection of high quality decorative metals designed and engineered specifically for architectural applications.
These incredibly versatile products are available in a variety of beautiful, durable textures and surface treatments – including the highly popular InvariMatte® – can be fabricated to fit basically any shape for limitless design flexibility.
Contrarian Micro Textures’ unique focus on architecture delivers a product line that is geared toward the uniformity, flatness and proper grade selection to ensure the appearance and performance of stainless steel and titanium building components. Made primarily from recycled material, our products are designed to last the life of the building without finish deterioration. The result is sustainable design with low maintenance costs and low environmental impact that generates long-term value to the building owner. Additionally, unlike media blasting methods that can release hazardous particulate into the air, the cold rolling process used to produce our bright, medium, and dull bead blast finishes, does not.
