Steel-It® Architectural Coatings, Paints & Finishes

Protective Stainless Steel Paint for Architecture & Construction

Architectural applications of STEEL-IT paintsSince 1974, Stainless Steel Coatings takes pride in serving the architectural industry with a coatings system that protects structural steel while still expressing its beauty.

Formulated with highly concentrated 316L stainless steel flake, the STEEL-IT brand of industry-leading coatings provides superior corrosion protection while showing a beautiful burnished stainless steel finish, allowing the architect’s aesthetic to shine through where structural steel features are visible. STEEL-IT has been used extensively by architects and builders to protect exposed steel beams, doors, and other fixtures while maintaining the look and feel of the underlying steel.

STEEL-IT coatings system can be used to treat exposed steel in both interior and exterior settings to protect metal from corrosion while maintaining and highlighting the look of steel. STEEL-IT is commonly used to protect and underscore a variety of features, including:

  • Walls
  • Window mullions
  • Outer doors
  • Hand railings
  • Structural beams
  • Steel decking and walk ways

Why Customers Love STEEL-IT Architectural Coatings

“Our decision to use STEEL-IT came after a long period of consideration and experimentation with many steel treatments and products such as galvanization, powder coating, marine coatings, wax treatments, oil finishes, Permalac, Smart Coat, Rust-Oleum, and Sherwin Williams’ Diamond Clad. With the exception of the STEEL-IT Epoxy System, none of these products were able to offer the combination of reliable interior/exterior protection, flexibility, ease of application, high solids (required for LEED),and a steel-likefinish.”–Giannina Zapattini Project Manager, Studio 804 Center for Design Research Project

“STEEL-IT has a nice quality to it and still expresses the steel. It has a look that bridges between raw steel and galvanized. We love the product because it gives you the flexibility to put the building together, weld, and then go back through and paint everything. That gives you a homogenous finish throughout and, importantly, avoids having to weld galvanized steel. As we all know, once you weld galvanized, you have to touch up with cold galvanizing – that’s a terrible look!” Dan Rockhill, Architect/Professor.
