Stainless Steel

One of the most desired metals today is stainless steel. The problem is stainless steel gets streaks, watermarks and fingerprints and is susceptible to scratches. For exterior stainless steel surfaces, such as hand and guardrail caps, outdoor barbecues, partitions or barriers, or interior surfaces such as bath or kitchen faucets, light fixtures  and more, protecting the surface is key.

DFI's stainless steel protective coating, Stainless Steel Defender™, is the first long-lasting coating available in the industry.  The covalent bond means the coating actually shares electrons with the stainless steel itself, enhancing it by creating a water-repellent (hydrophobic) and scratch-resistant surface.  Treated surfaces can expect to function properly for at least one year if exposed to direct UV light (outside) and at least three years for indoor applications. The coating imparts a smooth, luxurious feel and protects these surfaces from staining, marring, fingerprints and scratching, making it easier to clean, while improving the appearance. Once you've applied a protective coating, you'll notice a vibrant glow and colors you never knew existed on your stainless steel.

Will this work on my stainless steel appliance?

While most people refer to their appliances as stainless steel, the reality is most of these appliances are actually brushed aluminum or other similar material. One way to test if an appliance is truly stainless steel is to use a magnet and see if it sticks. If not, the appliance is actually brushed Aluminum. DFI suggests using its Aluminum Defender™ designed for appliances.
