The Benefits Of Choosing Stainless Steel Leave a comment

Material Choice

A resistance to corrosion and staining whilst offering durability is the reason why stainless steel is the number one choice for many applications where strength and rust resistance is required. Industries including Medical, Food, Chemical, Marine, Agricultural, Oil and Gas rely on corrosion resistance materials whilst safely withstanding the challenges of a hydraulic system in demanding environments.

Stainless steel is extremely durable and preserves its strength in exceptionally high and low temperatures, and with its remarkable properties it lends itself to being eco friendly. This material is 100% recyclable, with many products on the market today containing recycled elements. 

The benefits of choosing s/s:

  • S/S is corrosion resistant due to its strength and durability
  • S/S products can withstand the toughest environmental and temperature ranges
  • S/S resistance to chemicals and rust extends the service life of a hose assembly/hydraulic system.

For corrosive environments, stainless steel is recommended as the interaction between its alloying elements and the environment prevents it from rust. Stainless steel products are typically more expensive than alternative materials. The service s/s will offer will far exceed these alternatives and will prove cost effective with its longer product shelf life.
