Stainless Steel Material

75 years of experience has enabled us to become experts at knowing what makes a good manufacturing material. Stainless steel is a raw material used for a wide range of applications but why?

The term “stainless” was coined in the early development of steels for cutlery applications. However, the term now covers many different types and grades of steel. Stainless steel is popular due to the fact it does not corrode, stain, or rust easily. This sets it apart from normal steel, however it still retains the original strength that steel has. The addition of chromium is what protects the steel from surviving in harsh environments and protecting it from corrosion. Chromium essentially forms an invisible protective coating which allows the material to stay radiant and strong.
