Stainless steel - application
Stainless steel articles are used in almost every area of our economy. In recent years, we can observe a trend popularizing this material on the construction market. Round bars for handrails, barriers, and elements of small architecture, such as bicycle stands, are made of stainless steel. This material is used particularly often in the design of public utility buildings or in shopping malls. Especially now - in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic - architects appreciated this unique material for its trouble-free disinfection and ease of cleaning. When it comes to the construction sector, it is also impossible to forget that stainless steel is perfect for the installation of water and gas installations. Most pipelines and elements, such as: stainless concentric reducers, stainless elbows and stainless tees, are manufactured from 304 and acid-resistant 316 austenitic grades. In addition, stainless steel is widely used in the food and catering industry. It is used for installations in food processing factories, cisterns for the transport of brines, milk or spirit, and is also used in the production of equipment for industrial kitchens. In our home kitchens you will find steel pots, cutlery and bowls. Stainless steel is also used in the production of housings for household appliances.
Stainless steel is also widely used in many other areas of the economy. It is used in the pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive and even energy industries. It should come as no surprise that due to the constantly growing demand for stainless steel elements, like seamless tubes, stainless concentric reducer or stainless elbows, we have seen significant increases in the price of this raw material in recent months. Fortunately, prices have stabilized in recent weeks, although they have remained high.
