Surfaces of stainless steel strip

Design through surface treatment

The design of stainless steel strip is playing an increasingly important role. Zapp Precision Metals GmbH is addressing this trend and, in collaboration with its customers, is developing a wide range of very varied designs, suitable both for decorative and functional applications. Ergste Westig possesses the technological facilities to produce a broad range of designs.

The surfaces produced according to customer specification can be used for electronic devices, such as cellphones, MP3 players and digital cameras, as well as for all other applications requiring an unusual design or a special surface treatment. The market constantly demands new variations. To meet these demands, we also make use of our customers’ ideas.

In order to protect the decorative steel surfaces, our stainless steel strip can also be delivered with paper interleaving and/or special shrink-wrapping or purely protective film.
