Omad chose stainless steel for these feature: its mechanical resistance, its high corrosion resistance, the beauty of different surface, satin, sandblasted, black painted, the environmental performance of 100% recyclable material, the suitability to architectural applications, the union of strengh and modernity.
Stainless steel is a special alloy that combines the mechanical properties with other characteristics.
EXCELLENT RESISTANCE TO CORROSION
Why stainless steel is so resistant to corrosion?
Because the alloying elements of stainless steel form a thin passive layer on the surface. If this thin layer is nickhed or damaged, it will reform again, with oxygen in the air, continuing to protect the surface from corrosion.
THREE DIFFERENT FINISHES FOR THREE HIGH-DESIGN PRODUCTS
- Brushed stainless steel: the beauty of lucid and refined elements
- Sandblasted stainless steel: the strenght of steel sendblasted
- Black painted stainless steel: the traditional black finish on the strenght of stainless steel
INTENSIVE HYGIENE AND EASY CLEANING
To maintain the beauty of stainless steel’s elements you should never use products suitable for the removal of mortar or use dilute hydrochloric acid.
The contact with acid (muriatic acid, hydrochloric acid) or with alkali (sodium hypochlorite, bleach) or ammonia, can cause oxidation and corrosive effects on stainless steel.
The strenght and durability of stainless steel over time are linked to good maintenance and use of neutral cleaners. We recommend OMADCLEAN products, suitable to clean hardware on external shutters in wood, aluminium and PVC.
