Why Stainless Steel is the Preferred Material for So Many Applications

We have undertaken a lot of custom design stainless steel installation projects in the Perth area. Stainless steel is extremely popular in the hospitality, medical, sanitation, mining, mechanical and commercial sectors. We would like to tell you why.

Why Stainless Steel is the Preferred Material for So Many Applications

High Corrosion Resistance

Stainless steel provides high corrosion resistance in many different applications. A lower alloyed grade can be used for pure water and atmospheric environments, while a high alloyed grade is perfect for alkaline solutions, acids and chlorine bearing environments. This makes it the material of choice in most process plants.

Fire and Heat Resistance

High chromium and nickel-alloyed stainless steel grades retain their strength and resist scaling at high temperatures.


Stainless steel is the easiest metal to clean. This makes it the preferred material for all applications requiring strict hygiene, such as kitchens, hospitals and food processing plants.


Stainless steel is bright and easy to keep that way. It can lend an attractive and modern look in numerous situations.

High Strength to Weight Ratio

Because austenitic grades have a work-hardening property that allows them to be strengthened through cold-working, they provide a great strength to weight ratio. Duplex grades allow you to reduce the material thickness in many applications without losing any strength. The end result: it saves money.

Easily Fabricated

As stainless steel fabricators in Perth know, stainless steel is easily fabricated. It can be formed, cut, welded and machined as easily as standard steel.

Long Term Value

Because stainless steel is so durable and resistant to corrosion, it lasts longer than other materials used for similar tasks. This provides long term value.
