In any project, there is always a type of metal that is suitable whether it is used for architectural design, residential or commercial construction, and other types of metal works. Stainless steel is one of the most used metals in various industries. Stainless steel contains chromium that produces a thin layer of oxide on the surface of the steel to prevent corrosion. Stainless steel can withstand extremes of temperature, with great strength, and resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel have different types like ferritic, austenitic, and martensitic with different characteristics.
There are many applications of stainless steel such as oil, gas, and chemical industries for manufacturing pipes, pumps, tanks, and valves. Stainless steel is also used for reinforcing bars in building and construction jobs. In many cases, stainless steel offers the most cost-efficient solution, requiring less maintenance, and possessing longer service life for equipment. Ferritic stainless steels have plain chromium that varies between 10.5 % and 18% with a low carbon content, and they have good formability, and durability. Martensitic stainless steels are hardenable and magnetic used in cutlery, general engineering, and aerospace. The most common type of stainless steel is austenitic stainless steel containing 8% nickel and 18%chromium, nonmagnetic, and super austenitic grades have enhanced crevice and pitting corrosion resistance. Duplex stainless steels contain high chromium levels and moderate amounts of nickel, having high resistance to corrosion, as well as excellent mechanical properties. Lost wax technique is an effective and efficient method of producing high-quality stainless steel allowing composing your very own alloy. Lost wax castings are known for its superior quality steel castings, with precise tolerances and low surface roughness values. Lost wax technique virtually cast any steel alloy, complex shapes can be cast as one component, undercuts can be cast, suitable for larger and smaller series, and freedom in design and style.
The most commonly cast stainless steel alloys include 304 (food grade steel, housings, bodies), 304L/316L, 316 (plates, gears, housing), 410 & 416 (brackets, bushings, handles, housings), and 17 (rods, links, pins, arms).
