Stainless steel, (or “inox”, deriving from the French word “inoxydable”) is an amalgam of iron, carbon and chromium. Chromium protects the steel from oxidation and erosion. Apart from chromium, stainless steel may include more elements such as nickel, manganese and … There are at least 34 different types of stainless steel, each bearing different qualities.
Stainless steel is resistant to both chemical and natural erosion, which makes it an ideal material in numerous applications such as architecture and dining services. In architecture two types are used, AISI 304 and AISI 316. The AISI type is used to describe stainless steel worldwide.
Its hardness makes it ideal for structures in which great precision is required.
Its finish may be met in a mat, satine or shiny form.
