4 Industries Which Make Extensive Use of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has become an indispensable part of our daily lives. From the small keychain in your purse to the largest towers and bridges, stainless steel is everywhere.

Almost every industry holds stainless steel round bar suppliers in high regards which accounts for their year-long demand. These are the key characteristics of stainless steel, which make them the favourite resource for construction companies:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Rust resistance
  • It has very high melting and freezing points; ability to withstand bouts of extreme temperature.
  • Does not react to chemicals
  • High tensile strength
  • High durability
  • Completely recyclable

Stainless steel bars and other products are used on a daily basis by different industries, including construction, automotive etc.

Most Common Applications of Stainless Steel:

1. Construction – Architecture:

Stainless steel has been in the picture for more than a couple of decades now. But it is being used extensively only in the modern times, thanks to its strength, flexibility, and resistance to corrosion. It is used both in exterior supports and interior works.

Stainless steel bars are used in the exterior cladding and also in the interior parts, in the form of countertops, handrails, backsplashes etc.

The easy weld-ability of stainless steel, its attractive finish and, most importantly, low maintenance make it the choice material for modern high-profile architecture.

The use of stainless steel bars also lends to a sustainable development because not only is stainless steel is 100% recyclable, it is made from recycled metal also.

2. Transportation – Automotive:

The first recorded use of stainless steel in the automotive industry was in 1930, byFord. The use of stainless steel in the daily vehicles has only increased since then.

Stainless steel rods are favoured for making exhaust systems, grills, and trims. However, keeping the new emission reduction standards into consideration, stainless steel is used for building structural components too.

Stainless steel is used for building ship containers and road tankers. It is the choice material for transporting food products, liquids and chemicals because of its lack of reactivity to almost all chemicals. Its corrosion resistant properties also cut maintenance and cleaning costs.

3. Medical:

The property of corrosion resistance makes it ideal for places where hygiene is the main concern. Stainless steel equipment is widely used in medical procedures because these can be easily sterilised.

They find their use not only as surgical instruments but also for surgical implants and replacement surgeries.

4. Food – Catering:

Kitchen accessories like cutlery and cookware are made of stainless steel. Knives, spatulas, handles too are made of less ductile stainless steel. Varieties of steel which are more ductile are used for making cookers, grills, sinks, saucepans etc.

Food storage is preferred in stainless steel containers or jars with stainless steel lids. This is because of the property of non-corrosiveness. Stainless steel is durable too, making it easier to be cleaned without the risk of erosion.

Bars, rods, pipes etc. made from stainless steel have found their use in large industries as well as our households. It is safe to conclude that it has become a true asset to every industry which plans for clean, green and sustainable growth in the future.
