Features and Benefits

Features & Benefits
Rigidized® patterns are produced by texturing or "e;Rigidizing"e; all ferrous and non-ferrous metals in both sheet and coil product. In this process, metal is distributed above and below a neutral axis, thereby increasing strength in all directions.

Damage resistance and live cycle cost benefits
Rigidized® deep textured metals resist dents and scratches and are a deterrent to vandalism resulting in reduced maintenance costs.

Optical flatness
Textures diffuse light patterns to produce an optical flatness to sheet metals, thereby eliminating the unwanted "e;wavy"e; effect known as oil-canning.

Low friction surfaces
Pattern surfaces have reduced contact area resulting in the reduction of friction problems common in process machinery.

Weight savings
Rigidized® Metals are up to 75% stronger than ordinary sheet metal. This allows for down-gauging which results in less raw material consumption - thus saving money and precious environmental resources.

Reflective surfaces
Patterns control reflections and dissipate light for lighting and architectural applications.
