The efficient operation of public infrastructure has a strong effect on the quality of our daily lives: reliable access to energy and drinking water; the ease of travelling by road, rail, air or water; the safe disposal of waste and sewage; all determine how we live and work.
In these sectors, stainless steel can play an important role. Stainless steel enjoys a strong and enduring reputation for structural durability, corrosion resistance and visual appeal in a wide range of applications and environments. While it may require an initial higher investment when compared with other materials, stainless steel’s unique properties deliver long-term performance and economic benefits including minimum downtime, reduced maintenance costs and reduced environmental impacts. Proper material selection is a decisive factor for the durability and lifespan of infrastructure. It is the key to maximum availability and low maintenance costs during its entire life cycle.
