The transport industry faces many challenges. Arguably the most important is in developing new technologies and materials to ensure today's vehicles are sustainable, efficient and economic.

When selecting materials for the industry, engineers and technicians are looking for metals and materials that are strong, light weight, easy to fabricate, low maintenance etc.  Particularly within heavy transport, engineers need to consider cargo contamination and, where appropriate, the corrosive nature of any materials being carried.

The use of stainless steel gives engineers extra flexibility in their design due to its excellent corrosion resistance, weight to strength and fabrication properties.

Stainless steel is ideal for use in the following applications:

  • Tankers
  • Rail transportation
  • Ship building and maintenance
  • Automobile
  • Exhaust components
