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

 

STALA500 and high strength Austenitic material grades 310LN and 316Plus

We are introducing STALA500, our new enhanced steel class for Austenitic stainless steel

Two new high strength Austenitic material grades 310 LN and 316Plus are now available in strength class STALA350 or STALA500, depending on tube size. These materials combine the best features of austenitic stainless steel -  high level of corrosion resistance and toughness as well as excellent formability and weldability - with lighter weight and lower price. Sustainable, safe and cost-effective - totally revolutionary!

>> FIND OUR PRODUCT RANGE FOR 310 LN AND 316PLUS HERE, BOTH AVAILABLE IN STALA350 AND STALA500

APPLICATION EXAMPLES OF AUSTENITIC HIGH STRENGTH STAINLESS STEELS

  • Architectural applications like glass walls and balconies

  • Civil engineering applications like dam structures

  • Bridges

  • Process and transport tanks

  • Cable supporting structures

  • Process equipment (due to better abrasion resistance)
