Stainless Steel: The Best Material for Our Environment?

As a WA stainless steel product manufacturer, Western Stainless Solutions is proud of many things about stainless steel. One of the factors that makes us the most proud: stainless steel has less environmental impact than other metals.

To help ensure that we have a high quality of life in Australia, materials that we use for building should meet technical performance standards, be usable in a high number of applications, have a long shelf life and be friendly to the environment. In other words, the products should not only last a long time, but be 100% recyclable when their product life is finished. Stainless steel passes every test.

Best Material For The Environment - Stainless Steel

Desirable Characteristics of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has natural corrosion resistance because it is made partially of chromium. In addition, it is nearly twice as strong as mild steel. It has high cleanability, making it the surface of choice in situations where hygiene standards are strict, such as the medical or food and beverage industries.

Stainless steel is resistant to both heat and cold, making it perfect for use in low or high temperatures. Despite this strength and resistance, it is easily fabricated into the products you need. Stainless steel also has an aesthetic appeal that is unmatched by other materials and can be enhanced even further by brushing, polishing and texturing.

Stainless Steel: Even More Versatile than You Think

Stainless steel has many uses. In the home, you may see it in appliance trim, sinks and cookware. There are many industrial uses, the most common being chemical process and food preparation equipment. Entrance ways, building roofs, kitchen exhaust hoods and medical instruments are also made of stainless steel.

Stainless steel is also an important part of anti-pollution devices such as automobile catalytic converters and is also used to produce filters in the utility industry that “scrub” exhaust gases from stacks.
