    We can tailor our products for the end application requirements as well as offering technical and design services.


    Bakeware

    Materials used to manufacture products for bakeware applications must be able to survive high temperatures, repeat use and the rigours of household cleaning methods.

    High Temperature and Non-Stick pre-finished steel ranges from Tata Steel (Firsteel, Walsall, UK) have a reputation for exceptional performance in the bakeware sector. The quality and performance of our materials allows manufacturers to create bakeware products that last, giving confidence to retailers and the consumer.

    We have a selection of products, with different coatings and substrates, which are specified according to the performance requirement.  These products are supplied to manufacturers world wide.

    The technology is transferable to a number of applications, so whether you are a manufacturer of bakeware or require a high performance product for a high temperature or release coating application then contact Tata Steel (see Firsteel, Walsall on the 'Contacts' tab) using the details provided.

    Decorative

    Decorative pre-finished metals from Tata Steel give designers the flexibility to style products in any way imaginable.

    Applications include presentation and gift boxes, bicycle mudguards, trophies, briefcases, ring binders, mobile phones, picture frames, glasses cases and specialist containers.

    A worked metal appearance can be achieved using the hammer effect product or an antique look can be achieved using brass, copper and silver effects. A more high-tech look can be achieved with mirror, pearlescent and metallic silver effects.

    Customisation of the final product can be achieved through printing a brand or logo directly onto the surface of the product.

    Solid Colours - These can be matched to customers colour preferences and are suitable for all decorative applications including construction fittings.

    Metallic, Pearlescent and Fliptone Effects - This contemporary look is very much in demand to give components a high-tech finish for applications such as mobile phones.

    Print Effects - Effects such as marble, mica and tortoiseshell are suitable for applications such as automotive interiors and presentation boxes. Customised print solutions are available including company names and logos.

    Antique Effects - Brushed copper and brass substitutes provide a more cost effective alternative for applications such as small domestic appliances, presentation boxes, decorative handles and door furniture.

    Hammer Effects - These authentic worked metal effects are available for applications such as hand tools and presentation boxes.

    Other lacquered products are also available that achieve a tinted metal effect with anti-finger marking properties.

    Pre-finished steels for automotive and other bonding applications

    The automotive industry is recognised as the most demanding industry for product quality.

    Adhesive coated mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium are used in weather strips for doors and bonnets where the bond of metal to polymer is absolutely crucial in maintaining the weather tight seal, both on day one and after 10 years.

    Firsteel have taken this technology and applied it for use into gaskets and other types of sealing systems.  The technology is also used in bonding to fabrics, where the fabric benefits from the inherent strength of metal such as in dust-masks

    If you think that a pre-coated adhesive could solve a design problem that you are working on, contact us at Firsteel.
