Most of the requirements of the long-term use of the building to maintain the original appearance. In determining the type of stainless steel to be selected, the main criteria considered are the aesthetic standards required, the corrosivity of the site’s atmosphere, and the cleaning regime to be used. However, more and more applications are seeking structural integrity or impermeability. For example, roofs and side walls of industrial buildings. In these applications, the owner’s construction costs may be more important than the aesthetic, the surface is not very clean also. 304 stainless steel works well in dry indoor environments.

However, in rural areas and cities, it is necessary to conduct regular cleaning if they want to maintain their appearance outdoors. In heavily polluting industrial and coastal areas, the surface can be very dirty and even produce rust. But to obtain the aesthetic effect of the outdoor environment, you need to use nickel-containing stainless steel. Therefore, 304 stainless steel is widely used in curtain wall, side wall, roof and other construction purposes, but in aggressive industrial or marine atmosphere, the best 316 stainless steel. There are several design guidelines for 304 and 316 stainless steel.

Because “Duplex” stainless steel 2205 combines good atmospheric corrosion resistance with high tensile and elastic strength, the European directive also includes this type of steel. Product shape, in fact, stainless steel is manufactured with the full standard metal shape and size, but also many special shapes. The most commonly used products are made of sheet and strip, but also the production of special products in plates, for example, hot-rolled structural steel and extruded structural steel. But also round, oval, square, rectangular and hexagonal welded or seamless steel pipe and other forms of products, including profiles, bars, wires and castings. To meet the aesthetics of architects, a number of different commercial surface finishes have been developed.

3d printing area

Stainless steel itself has good corrosion resistance, high temperature stainless steel can still maintain its excellent physical and mechanical properties and other characteristics in the 3d printing area is also widely used.

Antibacterial stainless steel

The detection by authoritative units, antibacterial stainless steel on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus kill rate of more than 99% of other bacteria such as Candida albicans, such as also have significant Killing role, showed excellent broad spectrum Antibacterial and antimicrobial persistence. National Institute of Drugs and Biological Products test showed that antibacterial stainless steel in terms of toxicity and human safety in full compliance with national technical standards. While giving stainless steel antibacterial properties, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, hot and cold processing, welding and other properties equivalent to the original stainless steel.

Antibacterial stainless steel successfully developed for the development of antibacterial products provide a broad space. Antibacterial stainless steel product development potential is huge, the market prospect is extremely broad. Many domestic manufacturers have already expressed their strong interest in antibacterial stainless steel in today’s society. The research group is actively seeking to support the pilot program and strive to bring the achievement into commercialization as soon as possible.

Application areas

There are many reasons why surface finishing of stainless steel is important in architectural applications. Corrosion environment requires a smooth surface because the surface is not easy to scale fouling. Dirt deposition can rust stainless steel or even cause corrosion.

In the spacious hall, stainless steel is the most commonly used materials for elevator trim, although the surface of the handprints can be erased, but the impact on the beautiful, it is best to use the appropriate surface to prevent leaving fingerprints.

Hygienic conditions are important for many industries such as food processing, catering, brewing and chemical where the surfaces must be cleansed daily and chemical cleaners are often used.

Stainless steel is the best material in this area. Stainless steel surfaces are often sketched in public places, but one of its key features is the ability to clean them, a notable feature of stainless steel over aluminum. Aluminum surface easily leave traces, often difficult to remove. Stainless steel clean up the surface should be cleaned along the lines of stainless steel, because some of the surface processing is unidirectional texture.

Stainless steel is best suited for hospitals or other areas where hygienic conditions are critical, such as: food processing, catering, brewing and chemicals, not only because it is convenient for daily cleaning, sometimes for chemical cleaning but also because it is not easy to breed bacteria . Tests show that the performance in this area is the same as glass and ceramic.
