In the 1960’s, the automotive industry began to install rearview mirrors to windshields via a stainless steel mounting button, also called a mirror mount. SSI has been the world’s leading supplier of powder metal mirror mounts ever since.
- High temperature powdered metal stainless steel is the engineer’s material of choice because its coefficient of thermal expansion is most compatible with the windshield glass, its mechanical properties are superior to alternative die cast materials, its corrosion resistance without costly after-treatment, and its total cost is very low.
- SSI currently ships over 30 million mirror mounts per year in support of automotive programs around the world.
- Multiple design and size options available.
