Microchecker is a textured, geometric surface with small pattern features that resemble tread plate. This unique texture is suitable for use in high traffic areas like elevators and entryways. Since Microchecker has no coatings to deteriorate, it will last indefinitely with little maintenance. Microchecker is manufactured by Thyssen-Krupp Nirosta and distributed in North America by Contrarian Metal Resources.
The long-term performance of Microchecker is dependent on proper grade selection. In most environments, Type 304 will be sufficient to prevent corrosion. In normal seacoast applications, Type 316 should be specified. If parts are to be welded, the low carbon versions of these grades (304L/316L) should be used.

Severe environments such as seacoast atmospheres subjected to salt water spray and chemical plants will require different alloys, subject to application review.

Cut lengths up to 240" are available.
Since stainless steel is dimensionally stable up to 2000°F, Microchecker provides an added measure of protection in the event of a fire.
Microchecker is supplied to ASTM (American Society for the Testing of Materials) standard commercial allowances
