Stainless Steel Availability & Attributes

atas-roofinox-stainless-steel-th.jpgMany products from ATAS are available in stainless steel.  Stainless steel differs from metallic coated carbon steel because of the presence of chromium.  Stainless steel alloys typically contain between 13% and 26% chromium.  

Stainless Steel
  • Does not readily corrode, rust or stain from water contact
  • Used where the strength of steel and corrosion resistance are required
  • Corrosion resistant, not corrosion proof.  It can stain in areas of low oxygen, high saline, and low circulation environments
  • Actual corrosion resistance depends on the alloy (chromium and other metal content) and environmental factors
Materials are available in Classic 304 and Tin Plated 439.  These alloys differ from commonly available material as they have been altered slightly to enhance formability while retaining the corrosion resistance qualities.  Classic 304 provides a unique brush rolled texture while Tin Plated 439 material will develop a matte grey patina when exposed to the weather.

Product Availability: *Produced in standard alloy.
