Smooth Durable Coatings for Architectural Elements / Rugged Stainless Steel Shield for Structural Steel

A COATING ABLE TO PROTECT THE MOST DELICATE ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES AND SHIELD STRUCTURAL STEEL WHILE ALWAYS BEAUTIFULLY EXPRESSING THE ARCHITECT’S DESIGN INTENT

Saturated with our proprietary 316L stainless steel micro-flake, STEEL-IT® heavy-duty architectural coatings block corrosion and wear, protecting against moisture, salt, chemicals, and other destructive factors. Once dry and cured, STEEL-IT is up to 50% pure stainless steel with various resins making up the balance of the content depending on the particular coating selected. Easy-to-apply and easy-to-touchup, STEEL-IT coatings can provide 5 to 20+ years of lasting protection depending on where it’s used.

WHY STEEL-IT

“Our decision to use STEEL-IT came after a long period of consideration and experimentation with many steel treatments and products such as galvanization, powder coating, marine coatings, wax treatments, oil finishes, Permalac, Smart Coat, Rust-Oleum, and Sherwin Williams’ Diamond Clad. With the exception of the STEEL-IT High Solids Epoxy System, none of these products were able to offer the combination of reliable interior/exterior protection, flexibility, ease of application, high solids (required for LEED), and a steel-like finish.”

Giannina Zapattini Project Manager, Studio 804 Center for Design Research

WHAT CUSTOMERS THINK

“STEEL-IT has a nice quality to it and still expresses the steel. It has a look that bridges between raw steel and galvanized. We love the product because it gives you the flexibility to put the building together, weld, and then go back through and paint everything. That gives you a homogenous finish throughout and, importantly, avoids having to weld galvanized steel. As we all know, once you weld galvanized, you have to touch up with cold galvanizing – that’s a terrible look!”
