CeraMax is a customizable finish option
that prevents deterioration due to harsh environments, including salt spray,
oxidation, humidity and ultraviolet light. INOX is the first and only door
hardware manufacturer to offer this finish option. CeraMax is resistant to most
solvents and chemicals, providing a high level of hardness and adhesion while
also offering a beautiful finish in a multitude of optional colors to enhance
décor. It withstands the ASTM B117 Salt Spray Corrosion test (used to evaluate
the relative corrosion resistance to salt spray or fog at elevated
temperatures) up to 85 times longer than stainless steel, and can face extreme
exposure to high humidity and ultraviolet light for up to 5750 hours with no
yellowing or loss of luster.

Each piece of hardware is finished by
hand and the process includes sand blasting, ultrasonic and high-pressure air
cleaning, and baking in a finishing chamber—all performed under clean-room
conditions. The CeraMax line with color customization is available as a premium
option for all INOX products.
