Stainless steel is a strong, iron-based alloy, which is resistant to corrosion and rust.
It is a sustainable material which is also 100% recyclable. Additionally, stainless steel requires minimal care, unlike other substances which may chip or require renewed coatings.
This translates to significant cost savings for the end user. As a non-porous surface, stainless steel is ideal for kitchen and bath use, since it provides a hostile surface for germs and bacteria, which prefer porous surfaces. For this reason, it is widely used in the pharmaceutical, medical and food preparation industries, as well as other industries where hygiene and safety are a concern.
