ADVANTAGES OF TEXTURED STAINLESS STEEL

  • DAMAGE RESISTANCE All Rimex patterns will disguise scratches and dents, hence lengthening product life and reducing maintenance costs. The patterned surfaces thus lend themselves to anti-vandal applications or simply for use in high traffic areas.
  • WEIGHT SAVING
    The process increases the strength to weight ratio of all type of ferrous, non-ferrous, coated and non-coated metals. This means where weight consideration is important thinner gauges can be used without sacrificing strength.
  • LOW FRICTION SURFACES
    Patterns 5WL, 6WL & 7GM are being used for slides, dead plates and under conveyor belts. The reduced contact area helps to overcome friction problems.
  • HEAT INSULATION & DISSIPATION
    Domestic appliance manufacturers use 6WL aluminium to keep down outer case temperatures. The increased surface area of 6WL helps to dissipate heat in exhaust systems and exhaust manifold protection plates.
  • BONDING & ADHESIVES
    Concave patterns give an increased surface area thus aiding bonding where foam filling techniques are used.
  • OPTICAL FLATNESS
    The textured surfaces break up light patterns to produce an optical flatness to sheets which overcomes the “oil can” effect that spoils the appearance of so many prestige buildings clad in satin or mirror polished stainless steel and other metals.
  • AESTHETICS
    Not withstanding all the functional advantages, the patterns improve the appearance of
    products manufactured from textured metals.
