stainless steel is produced by sliding the sheets under
abrasive brushes or synchronised matrix rolls. In this way a pattern
is imprinted on either one or both sides of the sheet, depending
on the pattern. At the same time, the strength of the material
is increased by almost 50%.
of this increase in strength to the steel, many designers choose
to use a thinner patterned sheet against plain material. This
is because they can dramatically reduce the weight of a product
yet still obtain the required strength and durability needed,
for example, motor vehicles, carriages, or sports equipment.
