Why Use Stainless Steel in Construction

Stainless steel is a popular material choice for building construction. Reasons why it is used in architecture so frequently include:

  • * Corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is ideal for structures that are exposed to harsh environments.
  • * Durability. Stainless steel can withstand heavy loads and high stresses.
  • * Strength. With high tensile strength, stainless steel can resist deformation under tension.
  • * Workability. Stainless steel has great workability for cutting, forming, welding, etc.
  • * Sustainability. Stainless steel can be reused without losing its properties.
  • * High recyclability. Its scrap is valuable, so that you can recycle it indefinitely.
  • * UV resistance. Stainless steel can be coated with a protective layer to improve its UV resistance.
  • * Choosability. Stainless steel is available in various grades, dimensions, thicknesses, and surface treatments.
  • * Hygiene and sanitation. Stainless steel is ideal for hospitals, laboratories, and food processing plants.
  • * Fire resistance. With a high melting point and low thermal conductivity, stainless steel can help prevent the spread of flames.
  • * Aesthetic – visually and haptically.
  • * Chemical resistance.
  • * Affordability.

Surface Finishing for Architecture & Construction

Surface finishing refers to treating or enhancing the visible surfaces of stainless steel. It involves various techniques to achieve desired aesthetics, functionality, durability, and protection.

Suppose you want to apply decorative stainless steel sheets in your construction. In that case, specific surface finishing techniques and materials will vary depending on the architectural style, location, climate, and functional requirements of a project.

At TOPSON, we will help you to select the most appropriate surface finishing options to achieve the desired aesthetic and performance goals for a given project.

topson mirror polished stainless steel

Mirror finish is the most reflective polished finish in metal finishes. Whether using it for exterior or interior decoration, it can give impart a sense of luxury and high end.

Rose gold, black, blue, gold, green, pink, antique copper, bronze

Mirror-like, leveling, bright. Roughness is less than 0.8um.

blue water ripple

Water ripple stainless steel can bring spaces a dazzling, vivid and high-end atmosphere. The uneven pattern shines brightly under the light, which looks like ripples on the water surface.

Antique brass, champagne, black, blue, gold, green, pink, antique copper, bronze

Small Ripple; Middle Ripple; Large Ripple; Water Flow; Dune; Dimond; Hammer

fine finish bead blasted stainless steel

Bead-blasted is a surface finishing process adopting a high-pressured tool to shoot various blast media onto the metal surface. It creates a uniform and matte finish on the stainless steel surface.

Antique brass, red copper, black, antique copper, bronze

Matte, satin finish. Bright Bead-blasted; Medium Bead-blasted; Dull Bead-blasted

topson embossed finish

Embossed finish is achieved using individually designed, custom-manufactured structured rolls. It is a rather specialized process. At TOPSON, you are free to customize the pattern on the stainless steel.

Colors can be customized according to requirements.
