What are stainless steel fixings and when should they be used?

Stainless Steel has become a popular choice of product over the years, primarily thanks to its high corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal.

It is also very low maintenance and easy to clean making it suitable for applications where cleanliness and corrosion-resistance are key. For example, food and drink production plants, water treatment plants, pharmaceutical plants and so on.

The high corrosion resistance of the product is enabled by its high (over 11-12%) chromium content. Unlike regular carbon steel, when getting exposed to corrosive factors, the chromium layer of Stainless Steel starts oxidising instead of the steel itself. The oxidised chromium forms a very thin and tight layer which protects the metal from oxygen attacks.
