Böllinghaus Steel has made a significant donation of 55.000 € to the Centro Hospitalar in Leiria. The donation will be used to support the hospital, its health care workers and patients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic through the purchase of critical equipment and supplies for the fight against the virus.
Especially in harsh environments, metallic materials such as stainless steel are increasingly used to meet growing demands for efficiency and durability in structures. There are many good reasons to consider stainless steel for the marine and shipbuilding industry. The material’s significant properties, including its stiffness retention at high temperatures, ductility and strength make it a popular material for various applications in the marine and shipbuilding industry. Stainless steel has a combination of high residual value (as a result of the alloy content) and great durability, lending itself to extensive reuse, with practical, economic and environmental benefits.
What are the benefits of stainless steel systems for the marine- and shipbuilding industry?
Stainless steels have high corrosion resistance and simultaneously meet a wide range of technical challenges and offer very advantageous operating properties, especially for demanding industries such as the marine- and shipbuilding industry. The material’s significant properties, including its resistance, stiffness retention at high temperatures, ductility and strength make it a popular element for many applications in the marine- and shipbuilding industry. For instance, the duplex stainless steels offer potential applications in extremely corrosive environments, such as nitric, sulfuric or phosphoric acid. Intensely high corrosion rates can cause a complete system failure within a short period of time. The use of stainless steel profiles can offer a permanent and maintenance-free solution to possible corrosion damage to susceptible components in the marine-and shipbuilding industry. The material is reliable and ensures low maintenance costs, long life and an easy recycling process at the end of the life cycle.
It has been an extraordinary year behind us, with many changes and surprises, in which it was more important than ever to stick together and support each other. We wish you and your family a merry, peaceful and blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year. Thank you for your confidence in us and the good cooperation. This year instead of christmas presents we decided to support the child protection agency „Ortsverband Hilden e.V. des Deutschen Kinderschutzbundes“. Our office will be closed from 24th December, 2020 until 1st January, 2021. From the 4th January, 2021 we are happy to be back for you.
