Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is program designed to help specifers select appropriate stainless steels and surface finishes for applications where corrosion staining is aesthetically unacceptable, even without structural deterioration. The program uses the tabs; ‘environment’ to choose the pollution levels, ‘salt’ to choose the distance to coastal or trafficked areas, ‘weather’ to choose the climate, ‘design’ to choose the element orientation and surface finish and ‘maintenance’ to choose the cleaning schedule. Following the completion of these tabs, a ‘stainless steel selection guideline’ tab becomes available. This tab presents numerous suitable grade selections and also a series of warnings for the specifier to consider.
