The most popular surface finish is Deco Linen

Deco Linen is our most popular surface finish, a classy, timeless pattern with beautiful reflection behavior. By removing the distinctive linen thread, we created the less directional and more even version: Deco Linen without Slubs. Both types of Deco Linen are available in a scaled-down version for a finer and denser appearance. Deco Nine on the other hand has a more pronounced linen thread which makes it a pattern with a high recognition factor. Our newest development is Deco Vertical Linen. The Linen thread is tilted by 90° to increase verticality and create a smooth pattern flow.

Patterning of stainless-steel leads to an enhanced combination of design and function. We offer a large variety of patterned surface finishes, and each pattern can have different reflection properties (versions Star, Matt and Supermatt). Individual patterns can also be developed according to specific needs. For improved formability, a recovery annealing is applied after embossing and, due to tension leveling, the best possible flatness can be achieved.


Typical applications

Grinding or polishing

Grinding or polishing a stainless steel surface with abrasive belts of certain grain sizes leads to a wide range of highly decorative surface finishes. Because of Outokumpu’s ability to provide both wet and dry polishing and the freedom to use a 2B as well as a BA/2R substrate, we have an exceptionally wide product range to meet any demands and requirements.

The ground or polished surface has more or less clearly visible scoring, which also makes scratches from daily wear and tear less visible. A polished surface is also easier to recreate and blend, for example after repairs or welding work, compared with a 2B, BA/2R or a patterned surface.



Compared to polishing, brushing is a much softer process resulting in smoother and less pronounced but longer scores. The typical silky-matt look appears elegant and is often applied on column or lobby claddings.

The combination of polishing and brushing leads to an even wider variation of different surface finishes matching your specific needs.


Typical applications

Elevators, escalators, refrigerators, handrails, store counters and shelves, cookware, kitchen goods, architectural cladding
