Stainless steel is the go-to metal for most metal fabrication projects, and is the number one choice that the majority of contract manufacturing companies will recommend to their clients. Below, we take a look at why stainless steel provides such impressive long-term value and how this value makes it worth the initial cost of investment.
It is Resistant to Corrosion
This fact is undoubtedly the main reason why stainless steel is so popular in the mechanical engineering sector. Due to the fact that it is corrosion-resistant, it can also be used in a wide variety of industries, all the while promising maximum durability.
It is Eco-Friendly
Stainless steel is a sustainable metal that is 100% recyclable. Nowadays, it is important that every company pays attention to its carbon footprint; making every effort possible to reduce it. Stainless steel is the ‘greenest’ choice that you can make for your metal fabrication projects.
It Is Resilient
You can expose stainless steel to both extremely high and extremely low temperatures without having to worry about damage. Therefore, it can be used to create products that may be exposed to these temperatures on a regular basis, such as pressure valves.
It is Easy to Work With
Custom metal fabrication experts should have no issue working with stainless steel. In fact, as long as they have the right tools and equipment on hand, stainless steel is one of the easiest metals to weld, stamp and cut.
It Is Hygienic
Keeping stainless steel products and surfaces clean is rather effortless. This means that it is ideal for use in industries where hygiene is of the utmost importance, such as the food industry.
