Pursuing a Built Environment That Respects the Natural One
Contrarian Micro Textures has been helping architects, panel manufacturers, fabricators and contractors succeed in improving the built environment with high performance flat rolled metals, including stainless steel and titanium since 2001.
Our impressive portfolio of best-in-class products encompasses a wide variety of textures, surface treatments and finishes – including InvariMatte® stainless steel, which was used to create the largest stainless steel roof in the world. Contrarian's unique focus on architecture delivers a product line that is geared toward the uniformity and flatness required to ensure the appearance and performance of stainless steel and titanium building components.
Our high quality decorative metals, designed and engineered specifically for architectural applications are primarily manufactured in the United States, and distributed around the world. We are uniquely positioned to handle projects of any size, and provide experienced metallurgical support that further ensures proper specifications can be written for our high performance architectural metals.
Contrarian's architectural metals are offered in low glare stainless steel and titanium for roofing, as well as a variety of stainless steel finishes – from matte to mirror – for curtain wall panels, elevators, column covers, and other decorative sheet metal applications.
Made primarily from recycled material, Contrarian's products are designed to last the life of the building without finish deterioration. Given the intrinsic value of these materials, stainless steel and titanium components are likely to be recycled when the building is eventually torn down. The result is sustainable design with low maintenance costs, energy savings and low environmental impact that are good for the planet and generate long-term value to the building owner.
