Brushed Stainless anodize finish resists fingerprints and scratching, and requires minimal maintenance including in high-traffic areas offering wear and abrasion resistance.
An anodized finish has a long life span, has stability to ultraviolet rays, is non-hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by-products. In line with its core value of environmental responsibility, Linetec has implemented the electro-polishing technology to achieve the reflective aesthetic properties of stainless steel on aluminum. The traditional process used for brightening aluminum surfaces is known as bright dip. Bright dip emits toxic fumes, which can be hazardous to those working around it, and are corrosive to the equipment and buildings it is housed within. In contrast, electro-polishing has no hazardous discharge.
Linetec anodize finishes meet the requirements of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association Class I specification standard, AAMA 611-14. The anodized aluminum resists the ravages of time, temperature, corrosion, humidity and warping. Anodized aluminum may be specified with recycled content and is 100 percent recyclable. An inert material, it is not combustible and poses no health risks.
