WHAT IS STAINLESS REVOLUTION?

We believe that stainless steel is a sustainable choice in the world that needs sustainable choices to survive and to endure. Stainless steel is a great material but so far its full potential has not been utilized. We believe that high strength stainless steels take the sustainability, safety and cost benefits of stainless steel to a significantly higher level.

That's why we try to find - and urge everyone to use - solutions where high strength stainless steel replaces partly or completely the traditionally used standard materials.

Be sustainable, use stainless steel. Be more sustainable, use high strength stainless steel. These are the ways to Stainless Revolution

WHY YOU SHOULD USE HIGH STRENGTH STAINLESS STEEL

  • The material properties of high strength stainless steel allow significantly thinner tube wall thicknesses without compromising on the structure's functionality, stability or safety. The wall thickness can be reduced by up to 50% while maintaining the same outer dimensions and bending resistance than with standard materials.
  • Material savings equal to cost savings - and there are plenty of those during the product's long life cycle
    • Direct cost savings in the initial investment phase due to lower meter price
    • Cost savings in transportation due to lighter weight of the cargo
    • Cost savings in the installation phase
    • Total cost savings due to all of the above
  • Lighter weight also makes it a more ecological and sustainable choice

SUSTAINABILITY BENEFITS OF HIGH STRENGTH STAINLESS STEELS

  • Significant weight savings (up to 50%!) due to better mechanical properties - less material equals smaller carbon footprint for the product
  • Lower transport load due to lighter structural weight = lower carbon footprint for transport
  • 100% recyclable
  • Long life cycle
  • Highly corrosion- and fire-resistant; no coating with toxic paints needed = no load of toxins or harmful substances on the environment

 

NEW: STALA500 AND HIGH STRENGTH AUSTENITIC MATERIAL GRADES 301LN AND 316PLUS
