The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF), of which SSINA is a member, is a not-for-profit research and market development organisation, which was founded in 1996 and serves as the focal point for the global stainless steel industry. Its vision is to sustain our future with stainless steels. The Forum has recently released a new website - worldstainless.org - which aims to be the most comprehensive site for anyone interested in stainless steels.Read More
The metal’s high scrap value and recyclability ensures that it is diverted from landfills and recaptured for use in new stainless steel. A recent international study by the ISSF determined that about 92% of the stainless steel used in architecture, building and construction applications is recaptured and recycled at the end of service.
Nickel is the essential allying element in the 300 series stainless steel grades. The presence of nickel results in the formation of an “austenitic” structure that gives these grades their strength, ductility and toughness, even at cryogenic temperatures. It also makes the material non-magnetic. While the
A variety of solar technologies have been developed to take advantage of the sun’s natural energy. This exciting area holds tremendous promise and new innovations are continuing to emerge. These technologies use corrosion resistant stainless steels for the production of raw materials and for solar energy production.
