Stonetex

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. Since Stonetex has a self-cleaning surface with no coatings to deteriorate, it will last indefinitely with little maintenance.

 

Grade Selection
The long-term performance of Stonetex 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.
