Benefits of Stainless Steel: Part II

In our previous blog post, we provided some of the benefits that stainless steel offers, including its resistance to fire, heat, and corrosion. We also provided information on which grades are commonly used for indoor applications, and which are commonly used for outdoor applications. We only just touched on the many applications and benefits of this versatile metal, however, so here are more of the benefits and uses of stainless steel:

  • Stainless steel has a much lower environmental impact than other types of metal. In fact, 95% of the world’s stainless steel comes from recycled products, making this one of the most environmentally friendly materials to use for any application.
  • It is also an incredibly hygienic surface, since it is so easy to keep clean. In fact, it can be brushed with a cotton ball without collecting any residue, making it literally clean enough to eat off of. It is preferred in the food and beverage industry for just this reason, and is perfect for kitchen applications.
  • This material is also incredibly strong, particularly for the width. You can create walls that are much thinner with equal strength to other materials, meaning less waste and more product flows.
  • It is workable and easy to use in any application. Stainless steel sheets can be easily fabricated, cut, rolled, formed, calibrated, welded and machined, particularly in comparison with most traditional types of steel.
  • Stainless steel is one of the fastest growing materials in the world, making it one of the most available metals in the world. No matter for what you are purchasing stainless, whether you want a stainless steel grill or stainless steel sheet metal, you can purchase and receive it in next to no time.
