PROPERTIES OF STAINLESS STEEEL It is important to fully understand the advantages of stainless steel as a material that can be used in a variety of industries. This includes understanding the properties of stainless Steel that make it an ideal material for fabrication, rigging and cable manufacturing, as well as commercial, industrial and residential projects. These seven characteristics of stainless steel offer many benefits. 1. Corrosion resistance One of the most important and well-known features of stainless steel is its resistance to corrosion. It was the first "rustless" steel when it was created in 1913 by Harry Brearley. The key ingredient that gave stainless steel its unique quality was the addition of chromium. This was considered the breakthrough in its development. Since then stainless steel has seen a lot of development with many types and grades. We use 316-grade stainless which also contains 3% molybdenum. This increases its resistance against corrosion by industrial acids and alkaline solutions, and makes it more resilient in high-saline environments (e.g. Those living near the sea. Its founding characteristic makes it extremely applicable around the globe. 2. Resistance to heat and fire This blog is all about the resilience of stainless steel and how it can withstand heat and fire. This attribute is due to stainless steel's resistance to oxidation at high temperatures. This allows it to maintain its strength even under extreme temperatures. This is where Chromium plays a key role. Stainless steel is a great choice for fire resistance and prevention. This material is superior to galvanised steel or aluminium in this respect. 3. Hygiene Hygiene is a benefit of stainless steel that may not be immediately obvious but is extremely important. Stainless steel is extremely hygiene-friendly due to its ease of cleaning and sanitation. Because of its smooth, non-porous and sheen-like surface, dirt, grime, and bacteria cannot stick to it. They can be easily wiped off if they do. Stainless steel is a great choice for environments that require strong hygiene because of its ease of cleaning and maintenance. This is why professional kitchens almost exclusively use stainless steel. It's also why it's used in laboratories, factories, hospitals, and other places that require high hygiene. 4. Strength and resistance to impact Stainless steel is a tough, durable material that can withstand high impacts. This is partly due to stainless steel's low susceptibility at low and high temperatures to brittleness. This means that stainless steel can retain its shape at its melting point, which allows it to be welded, cut and fabricated more easily than we do when making balustrades. It's also used frequently in cryogenic applications due to its strength under cold working conditions. This shows how strong it is. 5. Aesthetic appearance A second reason people choose stainless steel is its aesthetic appeal. Although it may seem superficial, it's not less important. Stainless steel has been a modern, elegant and attractive material since its inception. It is a material that radiates purity and brightness. It has been a popular choice for ornamental and functional purposes in commercial and residential properties all over the world. It can also be used in conjunction with many other styles, colours and materials. 6. Sustainability Another advantage of stainless steel that isn't often mentioned but is vital as a global issue, is its sustainability. Stainless steel is usually made from 70% scrap metal, meaning that its foundations are not being used. It can also be recycled in its original form 100%, so it can still be used for its original purpose. It doesn't release toxic chemicals like other materials in the recycling process, which reduces the need to mine rarer elements that are important for the creation of stainless steel. 7. Long-term value The total cost of stainless steel's life span is well-worth it when you take into account its longevity and all other factors. Stainless steel's growing popularity in society has created more competition among suppliers, which has made pricing of the material even more competitive.
