Selection of Stainless Steel for Building External Application By yaang.com

Selection of Stainless Steel for Building External Application By yaang.com

Stainless steel is selected for architectural applications, as with most other applications, for their corrosion resistance. This is usually the prime consideration. Environmental factors such as temperature and humidity need to be taken into account, but the location of the proposed site is the ...

Cleaning Care And Maintenance of Stainless Steel By yaang.com

Stainless steels are selected for applications where their inherent corrosion resistance, strength and aesthetic appeal are required. However, dependent on the service conditions, stainless steels will stain and discolour due to surface deposits and so cannot be assumed to be ...
