STALA500 - Stronger stainless, lighter structures 

We believe that to save the planet for future generations something must be done immediately. This is why we started to do things differently and set out to find alternative, more sustainable ways to build things. Enter high strength stainless steel that has all the amazing benefits of stainless steel with less material and less weight. Enter easy-to-use high strength Austenitic stainless steel. Enter Stala500.

We are introducing a new enhanced strength class STALA500, along with two new high strength Austenitic material grades, 301LN and 316Plus to give you a smooth transition to the world of high strength from traditional materials, be it structural steel or traditional stainless grades.

They have all the benefits of Austenitic stainless steel:

  • easy to cut and bend with traditional methods
  • easy to weld with same welding wires and gases as the traditional Austenitic grades
  • easy to combine with other steel grades
  • cost-effective

 

And they are also more sustainable:

  • less material needed to achieve same performance resulting in more light-weight structures
  • lighter weight equals lower environmental impact: less energy consumption, less waste, lower carbon footprint and more

 

We don’t call it the Stainless Revolution for nothing.

STALA350 & STALA500

To complement the strength of our legendary STALA350, we are introducing an even stronger strength class, STALA500, which includes two new high strength Austenitic materials that enables even lighter and more durable structures.

STALA500:

  • Yield strength 500 MPa
  • Available in two high strength Austenitic material grades: 301LN (EN1.4318) and 316Plus (EN1.4420)

 

STALA350:

  • Yield strength 350 MPa
  • Available in all standard Austenitic grages and two new high strength Austenitic material grades: 301LN (EN1.4318) and 316Plus (EN1.4420)

 

Our new grades can be easily welded together with standard Austenitic grades. Due to their higher strength, laser cutting is recommended for the best results.

REDUCE WALL THICKNESS, REDUCE WEIGHT

STALA500 strength class enables significant reduction in wall thickness without compromising on the structure's performance. The wall thickness of Austenitic 301LN and 316 Plus hollow sections can be reduced even down to 50 % compared to standard grade tubes.

In this example the standard 304 tube 200x200x12 has been replaced with 301LN 200x200x8 reducing the wall thickness by 4 mm and the weight of the tube by 33% while the outer dimensions and bending resistance remain the same.

THE SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE FOR TRADITIONAL STRUCTURAL MATERIALS

  • Alternative material to traditional materials such as commonly used structural steel S355
  • Cost-effective solution: lower weight and extremely long lifecycle reduce overall costs
  • No need of coating due to excellent corrosion-resistance: saves both production time and costs as well as maintenance costs
  • Less C02 emissions and other environmental impacts due to lower weight, high recycled raw material content, 100% recyclability and the more sustainable production methods of our stainless raw materials
High strength austenitic less C02 emissions

Revolutionary benefits

At Stalatube, we aim to minimize our environmental impact and give our customers more sustainable and responsibly produced steel solutions and services, which enable increasingly environmentally friendly business, for instance by reducing environmental loads as much as possible. When we have new products out, they must reflect our sustainable way of thinking.

With STALA500, we are doing just that. STALA500 is a new enhanced strength class for Austenitic stainless steel. This new, higher strength stainless steel is more sustainable because it gives our customers the strength they need using less material.

But that’s not the whole story. STALA500 also enables lighter structures and does so with ease: despite of its high strength it has excellent formability and weldability so it's easier to process than many other high strength materials. The cherry on top of the sundae is that by needing less material, it also means a lower price for you.

To put it short: it’s a better, more sustainable product that’s also longer-lasting and more cost-effective. It’s revolutionary.

STALA500 application possibilities

COUNTLESS APPLICATION POSSIBILITIES

With our new STALA500 material grades 301LN and 316Plus, the wall thickness of tubes can be reduced significantly while maintaining the same outer dimensions and bending resistance as tubes made from standard stainless steel.

STALA500 hollow sections are suitable for use in various industries and many different applications.

Use it to replace standard structural steel and standard Austenitic stainless grades to gain more lightweight and sustainable structures.
