THE STAINLESS STEEL ADVANTAGE
Here at Dwyer Manufacturing, we specialize in the manufacturing of stainless steel products. Stainless steel is created when a minimum of 10.5% chromium is added to molten steel. Probably the most popular grade out of the many types of stainless steel is 18-8 which that indicates that the steel contains 18% or more chromium and 8% nickel. Stainless steel forms a ‘sacrificial’ layer of chromium oxide on its surface which protects the steel below. Scratches, and cuts ‘self-heal’ by forming a new sacrificial layer making this type of steel very resistant to corrosion and stains all the way through, and not just on the top layer.
There are many advantages to using stainless steel. In addition to corrosion and stain resistance, it has a high strength to weight ratio, which allows a thinner gauge material to provide strength equal to a thicker, heaver gauge of steel. It is easy to cut, bend, weld and machine. Once fabricated, it is virtually maintenance free and has a very long life. It is non-porous and therefore hygienic, hence its popularity in hospitals, restaurants and other areas where sanitation is essential. Aesthetically, it is available in a wide variety of finishes.
Here at Dwyer Manufacturing we believe that the many advantages to using stainless steel outweigh the higher initial cost of materials in a cost-benefit analysis over using regular or galvanized steel: strength, long life and low maintenance.
