Stainless steel has a far greater corrosion resistance than normal mild steel. It is used for applications requiring high corrosion resistance or extended life. It is an increasingly popular construction material with its whole life cost benefits contributing to towards more sustainable development.
Stainless UK Ltd stock the two main grades of stainless steel used in construction.
Grade 304 (1.4301) is the grade most often used for corrosion resistant reinforcement, suitable for most atmospheric and concrete covered environments.
Grade 316 (1.4401) has a higher molybdenum and nickel content than 304 (1.4301). It is more expensive but also has higher corrosion resistance and is the recommended grade for marine and corrosive environments.
Although the chemical composition and corrosion resistance are different, the physical properties of the 2 grades are similar.
