The Endless Utility Of Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel has been such a common feature of our modern civilization for so long now that it is impossible to conceive of a time when mankind did not have this wonder material. The usages of stainless steel extend into nearly every area of commerce, industry, construction, food safety, medicine, and kitchenware and cabinetry. Stainless steel components are used in water filtration, sanitation, desalination and water treatment. This is due not only to its strength but also its non-corrosive properties.

Like all grades and varieties of steel, stainless steel is an alloy, a material produced by the combination of two or more separate metals melted together. Ordinary steel consists of iron to which a small amount of carbon is added. When it was first developed in the early Twentieth century, stainless steel acquired its qualities by the addition of the metal chromium. This not only made the alloy bright and shiny, making it visually attractive, but also vastly improved the steel's capacities to resist tarnishing and corrosion. It is this quality more than any other that makes stainless steel unique and valuable to a wide variety of applications.

Both exceptionally corrosion resistant and lightweight, stainless steel very quickly was adapted for home usages such as cutlery, kitchen sinks, pans, cookware, and oven grills, garden furniture. Stainless steel ended up being used for the construction of bus shelters and telephone booths, building facades, elevators and escalators, and subway trains. The industrial applications for stainless steel included manufacturing equipment, water treatment equipment, engine components for both land vehicles and aircraft, fuel and chemical tanker trailers, and piping and storage tanks for the petrochemical industry.

Aero Stainless Steel Manufacturing is heavily involved in the manufacture of stainless steel products for both common usage and for custom production and application. The architects and designers on staff are capable of working up complete designs from a client's specifications. They take them all the way through the manufacturing and machining process to yield up the completed final product. Aero Manufacturing also produces a number of standard lines of commercial products used in the restaurant industry, medical clinics and hospitals, home and commercial kitchenware, plumbing facilities and work tables. With the latest manufacturing and fabrication techniques applied to the production process, quick turnaround times on orders are possible. This is particularly true for custom fabrications required for specialized functions.

The addition of a new Casework Configurator makes it possible for customers to create a custom cabinet or shelving unit with a few online drag-and-drop tools. From that point, filing out a simple form is all it takes to obtain a quick price quote. If satisfactory, a few more mouse clicks complete the order. For more information, check out the website at
