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.

InvariLux® is a non-directional, reflective, uniformly textured stainless steel finish 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 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 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.

InvariTone is a non-directional, moderate gloss, uniformly textured stainless steel finish 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.

InvariWisp 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.

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.

InvariLux® 316/316L & ATI 2003™ is a non-directional, reflective, uniformly textured stainless steel finish 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® 316/316L & ATI 2003™ is a low gloss, uniformly textured stainless steel finish 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® Walnut is a directional, uniformly textured stainless steel finish with 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.

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.

Fine Guard 3 (FG3) is an anti-fingerprint coating developed by Tsukiboshi Art Company, a subsidiary of Nisshin Steel in Japan. This coating is available on all of Tsukiboshi’s substrate stainless steel finishes, including Starlight, Hairline and Vibration, as well as on colorized versions of the Tsukiboshi’s line of finishes.

Titanium:
InvariGrain - Coming soon!

InvariBold - is a directional, linear ribbed titanium finish designed for use in architectural applications. Its moderate reflectivity lends itself to a variety of applications, including wall panels, coping and trim. Since InvariBold has no coatings to deteriorate, it will last indefinitely with little maintenance.
