Stainless Steel:
Anodic Colorized Finishes are stainless steel substrates finished with a thin oxide film and are designed for use in architectural applications. Visually, the oxide film tints the stainless steel with a given color but allows the surface characteristics of the substrate finish to remain visible. Anodic Colorized Finishes can be used in a variety of applications, including wall panels, coping and trim.

Vapor Deposition Colorized Finishes are stainless steel substrates finished with a thin ceramic film designed for use in architectural applications. Visually, the film serves to tint the stainless steel with a given color which allows the surface characteristics of the substrate finish to remain visible. Vapor Deposition Colorized Stainless Steel Finishes can be used in a variety of applications, including elevators, wall panels, coping and trim.

InvariGrain is a rolled-in grit line finish, similar to conventional #4 stainless, with superb overall consistency. Designed for architectural applications such as wall panels, elevators, coping and trim, InvariGrain offers excellent panel-to-panel matching.

InvariLux® is a non-directional, reflective, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a bright bead blast appearance and superior soil resistance designed for use in architectural applications. It can be applied to wall panels, elevators, coping and trim. The consistency of this finish results in good panel-to-panel matching.

InvariLux® 316/316L & ATI 2003™ is a non-directional, reflective, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a bright bead blast appearance and superior soil resistance designed for use in architectural applications. It can be applied to wall panels, elevators, coping and trim. The consistency of this finish results in good panel-to-panel matching.

InvariMatte® is a non-directional, low gloss, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a dull bead blast appearance and superior soil resistance designed for use in architectural applications. While its lower reflectivity lends itself to roofing applications, it can be applied to wall panels, coping and trim. The superb consistency of this finish results in excellent panel-to-panel matching.

InvariMatte® Black is a non-directional, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a dull bead blast appearance and a thin black oxide film designed for use in architectural applications. It can be applied to roofing and wall panels, as well as coping and trim.The black chromium oxide film is produced electrochemically in collaboration with Prismatic Stainless Steel, Division of B&M Finishers, Inc. Unlike paints coatings, the finish is not reactive to ultraviolet light. InvariMatte® Black retains the corrosion resistance of the underlying T304 alloy.

InvariMatte® Walnut is a directional, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a dull bead blast appearance and a thin brownish black oxide film designed for use in architectural applications. It can be applied to wall panels, column covers, coping and trim. The brownish black chromium oxide film is produced electrochemically in collaboration with Prismatic Stainless Steel, Division of B&M Finishers, Inc. Unlike paint coatings, the finish is not reactive to ultraviolet light. InvariMatte® Walnut retains the corrosion resistance of the underlying ATI 2003 alloy.

InvariMatte® 316/316L & ATI 2003 is a low gloss, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with superior soil resistance designed for use in architectural applications. While its lower reflectivity lends itself to roofing applications, it can be applied to wall panels, coping and trim. The superb consistency of this finish results in excellent panel-to-panel matching.

InvariTex is a reflective, uniformly textured finish, available in stainless steel, designed for use in architectural applications.  It is suitable for use in high traffic areas like elevators and entryways.

InvariTone is a non-directional, moderate gloss, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with a bead blast appearance and superior soil resistance designed for use in architectural applications. It can be applied to roofing, wall panels, coping and trim. The superb consistency of this finish results in excellent panel-to-panel matching.

Sandtex®is a reflective, uniformly textured finish, available in stainless steel, designed for use in architectural applications.  It is suitable for use in high traffic areas like elevators and entryways.

Stonetex is a moderately reflective, uniformly textured stainless steel finish designed for use in architectural applications. It is suitable for use in high traffic areas like elevators and entryways. Excellent finish consistency results in panel-to-panel matching.

InvariBlend® is a two-step, abrasive polished finish with excellent matching characteristics designed for use in architectural applications. It has a more linear appearance than traditional #4 polish, lending itself to repair and blending in the field. InvariBlend® can be applied to wall panels, elevator cabs, coping and trim.

#8 Mirror is a multi-directional finish, similar to what is often called a vibration finish. Designed for use in architectural, and other cosmetically demanding applications, it has a uniform texture with random, multi-directional grit lines. It is inspected to a visual standard to ensure the highest degree of consistency. InvariWisp can be applied to wall panels, elevator cabs, coping and trim.

InvariWisp is a multi-directional finish, similar to what is often called a vibration finish.
