Stainless steel is the ideal material for the energy industry

The development of ever new technologies in the generation, transmission, distribution and storage of energy requires a material that can be used universally in all weather conditions. Whether in wind turbines, coke ovens or collectors – stainless steel has established itself as the most widely used metal and is ideally suited to meeting the high demands of the rapidly changing industry.

Stainless steel is extremely stable. This makes it the ideal material for rotating components. Furthermore, its hardness and dimensional stability know to convince even under high forces. It is highly resilient, stays in shape and is able to withstand extreme weather conditions as well as corrosion and abrasion.

Stainless steel bipolar plates feature a protective layer that increases corrosion resistance and provides good surface contact resistance. Stainless steel is also suitable for the construction of desalination plants, wall coverings, organic acid production facilities and other industrial applications requiring high corrosion resistance. Stainless steel has the strength required to withstand corrosive attacks in harsh environmental conditions.
