Applications of
Stainless Steel

Limited to usage in kitchens alone earlier, stainless steel is now increasingly making its ...presence felt in domains we could not have imagined a few decades ago. Perhaps this is the reason why stainless steel has been the fastest growing metal for over two decades. Today, stainless steel has already established itself in sectors like automotives, railways and transport (ART); architecture, building and construction (ABC); chemical & petrochemical industries, capital goods, kitchenware, and food processing industries. >>

Architecture, Building & Construction

Stainless steel provides tremendous design flexibility to construction projects along with impeccable strength, resistance to corrosion, and fire resistance. This makes stainless steel a practical choice for public and industrial buildings. All over the world, stainless steels are being used for structural applications- ranging from cutting edge architectural designs to setting up a robust public infrastructure

Automotive &
Transport

Automotive and Transport sectors are increasingly using stainless steel to reduce weight, improve aesthetics, enhance safety, and minimize life cycle cost. Since it exhibits superior combination of high strength, ductility, formability, and toughness compared to other metals and alloys, the intrinsic weight of vehicle decreases and its load carrying capacity and fuel efficiency increases.

Railway

Stainless steel is a preferred material for railway applications worldwide on account of its longer life, higher strength-to-weight ratio, aesthetic appearance, and corrosion resistance. Its durability and minimal maintenance and no requirement for external protective painting make it an economical choice. Benefitted by energy-saving, light-weight design, and ~100% recyclability at the end of service life, stainless steel can be qualified as an environmental friendly material. Bright and contemporary finish of stainless steel has further strengthened its applicability in railway segment.

Nuclear
Applications

Neutron irradiation inside a Nuclear Power Plant can put even the strongest of metals to test. Unlike a lot of other metals, stainless steel provides greater safety and superior performance when used in structural components of high-pressure water reactors and fast breeder reactors. This is due to its superior strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, high ductility and durability. But that’s not all, stainless steel is also the material of choice for reprocessing spent fuel discharge from reactors. At Jindal Stainless, we are proud to strengthen India’s journey towards clean and green energy by supplying 304L (NAG)/304/304L/304LN/316/316L/316LN/321/310S and EN 1.4550 stainless steel to the nuclear sector.
