Ornamental Stainless Steel Tubing Explained
Ornamental stainless steel is a family of metal alloys comprised of iron, chromium, and other elements. The elevated amounts of chromium create a protective surface oxide that resists corrosion and chemical degradation. The oxide layer self-heals if nicked, scratched, or damaged.
Other characteristics include:
- Aesthetic Appearance
- Very Durable
- Avoids Rust
- High Strength-To-Weight Ratio
- Easily Machinable
- High Tensile Strength
- Light Weight
- Low Maintenance
- Easily Formable
- Environmentally Friendly
Also called decorative stainless steel tubing, it’s renowned for having a long cycle life and being fully recyclable. As a result, the material is perfect for applications aiming to highlight environmental sustainability.
The Decorative Stainless Steel Edge
Since the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, sanitation of touch points has become more critical. Incorporating decorative stainless steel into your project is a great start, as it’s easy to clean and doesn’t harbor bacteria like other steels.
Ornamental stainless steel tubing can be washed throughout the day using anything from water to caustic industrial cleaning substances without fear of degradation. The soft angles of round tubing promote drainage, too.
The combination of superior strength, aesthetic appeal, corrosion resistance, and cleanability makes ornamental stainless steel tubing perfect for many applications. Examples include:
- Boat Rails And Ladders
- Washroom Grab Bars
- Swimming Pool Rails
- Medical Equipment
- Automotive Step Bars And Grille Guards
- Food Processing Applications
- Ovens, Refrigerators, Restaurant Equipment
- Exercise Equipment
