Outokumpu Deco range
Special surfaces for stainless steel
Key productDeco Linen
Patterning of stainless steel leads to an enhanced combination of design and function. Outokumpu offers a large variety of patterned surface finishes, and each pattern can have different reflection properties.
Our most popular designs are Deco Linen, Deco Haze, Deco Laser, Deco Microlinen, Deco Diamonds, Deco Square, Deco Microchecker, and Deco Leather Grain. Individual patterns can also be developed according to specific needs. After embossing, a recovery annealing is applied for improved formability and, due to tension leveling, an extremely high flatness can be achieved.
Elevators, escalators, interior architecture, anti-slip surfaces, sinks, claddings, facades, cash desks, refrigerated display cases, scratch-resistant housing for various machines.
Thickness: 0.3–3.5 mm/0.011–0.13 in
Width: up to 1500 mm/59 in

Deco Linen StarCompared to the standard Deco Linen this high-end Linen version goes through an additional production process which adds a very fine texture upon the pattern structure resulting in a more sparkling finish with slightly lower reflectance alongside with a higher homogeneity of the surface.
Deco Linen MattDuller than regular Linen but nonetheless a lively finish due to a smoothly and slightly glittering reflectance.
Deco Linen SupermattThis symbiosis of patterning and industrial blasting results in a homogeneously dull finish with well below 10% specular reflectance but still showing an unobtrusive sparkle.
Deco AusteniteModeled on the microstructure of an austenitic stainless steel, plays with the light to create a dazzling effect.
Deco BricksScaled-down version of a brick wall, creating an industrial impression.
Deco DiamondsStrictly geometric pattern given added tension by its diagonal orientation.
Deco HazeFinish appearance as sun shines through the fog. The finish is capable of withstanding heavy forming operations and offers advantages in terms of scratch resistance and easy-clean properties.
Deco Ice CrystalsIrregular coarse structure. Insensitive to fingerprints, scratches and other surface damages.
Deco LaserLaser consists of digitalized micro-patterns which are randomly arranged without a pattern repetition. Under all viewing angles and light conditions a nearly homogeneous surface is observed.
Deco Leather GrainIrregular structure making it insensitive to scratches and similar surface damage.
Deco Linen without SlubsRemoving the distinctive linen thread makes Deco Linen less directional and increases its even and elegant look.
Deco MicrocheckerTriggers industrial associations, ideal when a high-quality technical impression needs to be conveyed.
Deco MicrolinenScaled-down version of the typical linen pattern, making for a finer, denser, higher-quality appearance.
Deco Microlinen without Slubs
The scaled-down version is available without the linen thread to create a fine and dense but less directional finish.
Deco NineLinen structure, but deeper and more pronounced textile surface appearance. Insensitive to scratches. Pattern remains intact even under forming.
Deco Sand SurfaceFine irregular structure creating the impression of a sand surface.
Deco SquareClearly structured pattern creating a technical impression. Raised and recessed sections have different reflection characteristics.
Deco TriangleA calm, stylish pattern consisting of small equilateral triangles.

Deco 4NElegant finish with a satin-like look. Wet-polishing in our stainless steel mill assures a smooth and clean surface for highest demands on appearance and cleanability. Ra typically between 0.18 to 0.30 µm.
Deco HairlineStrongly linear texture with continuous brushing lines.
Deco MicrolonThe very fine grinding texture makes the surface appear in an elegant dark gray. Microlon gives interior and exterior claddings a classy appearance.
