Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is addition of chromium that gives steel it's unique stainless and corrosion resisting properties. The chromium content of steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible, corrosion resisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged, mechanically, this film is self healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts is present.

  • corrosion resistance
    Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric and prure water environments, while high-alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions and chorine bearing environments, properties which are utilized in process plants.
  • fire and heat resistance
    Special high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades resist scaling and retain strenght at high temperatures.
  • aesthetic appearances
    The bright, easily maintained surface of stainless steel provides a modern and attractive appearance.
  • impact resistant
    The austenitic microstructure of the 300 series provides toughness, from elevated temperatures to far below freezing, making these steels particularly suited to cryogenic applications. 
  • long term value
    When the total life cycle costs are considered, stainless steel is often the least expensive material option.
Stainless steel products complete their service life. There is less concern about disposal since this material is 100% recycable. In fact, over 50% of new stainless steel comes from old remelted stainless steel scrap, thereby completing the full life cycle.
