Can it be used for exterior application ?
As it is 316 grade Stainless Steel with a Mirror finish, it is more than suitable for use outside.
How do you fix it to the stainless steel tube ?
For the DIY market you can use a suitable glue (found on our online shop). For the professional fabricator, you can weld and polish to create a seamless finish.
How should you finish it ?
If you are happy with a Mirror finish, then the product does not need to be touched up in any way.
If though you would like a Satin finish, try using our non-woven web pad that will allow you to fairly easily remove the current high polished finish that it has.
