The Advantages Of Using Stainless Steel For Metal Fabrication

This blog post will focus on the advantages of using stainless steel for metal fabrication


Working with stainless steel is only a challenge if your fabricator is working with outdated equipment. Stainless steel can be cut, welded and everything in-between with ease.


100% Recyclable

More and more organisations are choosing to remain aware of the impact that they are having on their communities at large. Over 50% of stainless steel comes from previously melted stainless steel scraps, reducing waste.


Fabricators easily form, mold, weld, cut or stamp to design specifications and geometries. As stainless steel has a non-porous surface, it is perfect for applications where sanitary conditions are a must. The material is well-suited for use in food manufacturing machinery, equipment, cookware, and cutlery, but also for medical devices, equipment, and components. The impenetrability of stainless steel also gives it a visually aesthetic appearance. The material is easy to clean and keep clean, resisting stains and rust.


Fire and Heat Resistant

Adding more value to the long-term investment of stainless steel is its resistance to fire and heat. Choosing high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades allow you to use stainless steel effectively in boilers, valves, feed water heaters and other heat exchangers.


Long-Term Value

The long-term value of working with stainless steel far outweighs the initial investment that often turns the uninformed away. The life cycle cost should always be a part of the decision making. Choosing a maintenance-free product like stainless steel allows you to focus on a great process and product.
