Stainless Steel is extremely durable with all the properties of Steel and with the added advantage of exceptionally high resistance to corrosion.

Notably, Stainless Steel doesn’t corrode or rust with water like regular Steel, as long as the protective oxide film is maintained, hence Stainless Steel is also called Corrosion-resistant Steel within the aviation industry.

Stainless Steel is low maintenance and has a recognisable lustre, it has antibacterial properties, can be steam cleaned and sterilised and does not need to be painted or finished, Stainless Steel is utilised for both its practical and aesthetic properties.

Stainless Steel comes in a number of forms including;

  • Ferritic Stainless Steels which are inexpensive and magnetic.
  • Austenitic Stainless Steels which are non-magnetic, have improved weldability and are tougher and stronger at higher temperatures, than other Stainless Steels, which is advantageous for marine applications.
  • Martensitic Stainless Steel are well known for their abrasion and wear resistance, however, some Martensitic Stainless Steels are not recommended for welding.

Duplex and Super Duplex Stainless Steels are high strength and have good weldability and formability Stainless Steel is 100% recyclable and highly durable. Most Stainless Steel objects in the UK will contain around 60% recycled material and will be built to last for several decades making Stainless Steel a very environmentally, and economically sound choice in a wide array of applications.
