INOX – Steel processing guide
This manual does not pretend to introduce stainless steels in depth and in all their aspects, nor to exhaust the subject in this short manual.
We simply attempted to accomplish for the generic user a sort of guide, a good practice manual, so as to provide the essential elements to cope, quickly, to the many questions that often arises in the design phase, machining or installation.
For further information on individual topics, you may possibly refer to the texts reported in the literature, to the bottom of the manual.
Many are the uses of stainless steels, from the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, nuclear, construction, etc. and currently significant is the development of these alloys from the application point of view; so that in several industrial fields as stainless steel, thanks to its outstanding corrosion resistance and high mechanical properties, has now taken the place of other traditionally used materials.
However the user, as well as tap into this manual the necessary information, may involve “Centrinos” for any purchases, recalling that our company provides stainless steels of AISI 300 and AISI 400 in various sizes and in different surface finishes. Also it performs cutting to size, flattening and every type of surface finish, even on the customer’s material.
In next chapters we will see more closely the properties of these steels.
