Stainless steel is an iron alloy containing chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. By varying the quantity of the alloys, over 100 different types of stainless can be manufactured, each containing different structural properties and resistance to corrosions. In addition to its physical benefits, different manufacturing methods can be used to create either a high luster or matt finish, which create a variety of design options.
The billet used for stainless steel is produced by forging the steel to the required gauge, then rolling it into large coils. The material then undergoes a finishing process to obtain a satin, scotch-brite or polished surface. The coil is then rolled into the desired shape while a protective film is applied to protect the finish.
