What is Blackened Steel?
Blackened steel is a term used to describe metal that has been finished with black oxide. This cold black oxide process is primarily done on Ferrous Metals such as Hot-Rolled Mild Steel. Eckstrom Industries also performs a patina process that is primarily done on Non-Ferrous Metals including copper, brass, bronze, etc.
There are many benefits to blackened steel, including:
Protection Against Corrosion
We utilize a proprietary blackening sealer that contains the chemical process that occurs in the metal once introduced to the black oxide; and provides mild protection against corrosion, making it ideal for architectural metalwork projects.
Blackened steel has an edgy, sophisticated look. This is one of the reasons blackened metals are extremely popular. In addition to looking luxurious, this process also reduces light reflection and is resistant to heat, so it can be used for indoor and outdoor elements.
Suitable for Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Purposes
One of the best parts of metal blackening is that this process is suitable for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes. Whether you’re looking for stair railings, a business sign, or a decorative piece for your facility, our blackened steel experts will be glad to help.
