Stainless steel, re-discovered in the early 19th century, is an alloy of iron possessing the primary feature of corrosion resistance. This alloy can resist corrosion owing to the presence of min. 10.5% chromium forms a passive oxide layer onto the surface of the steel naturally by the combination of oxygen and chromium in the air, thereby protecting the steel from getting rusted or developing corrosion. The higher the level of chromium in the composition of steel, the higher will be the alloy’s resistance to corrosion. If the surface of the steel metal gets scratched, it quickly reforms its shape, making the steel one of the most chosen materials in architectural use.
One of the primary advantages of using stainless steel is that it offers an excellent great variety of surface finish like matt, bright, embossed, tinted, etc.
Stainless steel grade and type must be selected depending on the basis of corrosion resistance requirements and its suitability for specific environments. We use stainless steel in the form, including, austenitic stainless steel with an enhanced austenitic steel composition, and a wide range of products like seamless and welded pipes, plates, sheets, wires, fittings, bars, flanges, and more.
