UGINOX Patina K44 is a bistabilized ferritic stainless steel with an electro-tinned coating on both sides. This ferritic stainless steel is K44 and belongs to the KARA range: it contains 18% chromium and molybdenum and is stabilized with titanium and niobium.

UGINOX Patina K44 weathers over time, acquiring a matt finish through natural patination giving a traditional rustic final appearance. UGINOX Patina K44 has the benefit of a high corrosion resistance, suitable for use in aggressive atmospheres.

Think Stabilised Stainless Steel !

Chromium is a key chemical compound, which basically gives stainless steel its corrosion resistance property. Indeed a chromium oxide is created on the material surface in contact with air and water. This layer repairs itself and therefore protects the surface.

Molybdenum reinforces its corrosion resistance.
