Austenite 55 is a randomly textured, geometric surface with pattern features that reflect light differently, depending on light source and angle of view. A striking appearance results from the light-to-dark contrasts within its unique texture. It is suitable for use in high traffic areas like elevators and entryways. Since Austenite 55 has no coatings to deteriorate, it will last indefinitely with little maintenance. Manufactured by Thyssen-Krupp Nirosta and distributed in North America by CMR.
The long-term performance of Austenite 55 is dependent on proper grade selection. In most environments, Type 304 will be sufficient to prevent corrosion. In normal seacoast applications, Type 316 should be specified. If parts are to be welded, the low carbon versions of these grades (304L/316L) should be used.

Severe environments such as seacoast atmospheres subjected to salt water spray and chemical plants will require different alloys, subject to application review.

Since stainless steel is dimensionally stable up to 2000°F, Austenite 55 provides an added measure of protection in the event of a fire.
Austenite 55 is supplied to ASTM (American Society for the Testing of Materials) standard commercial allowances.
