Is It The End of Stainless Steel?

Related Steel:

Whirlpool turned a few heads last week when they announced their new White Ice finish for their deluxe kitchen appliance collection. The white, mirrored-glass, silver-accented design is notable because for the first time in at least a decade, the exterior of a major-brand, top-end appliance line isn’t strictly stainless steel.

There have been other hints that the industry is shifting away from a solely stainless design plan, like these colorful ranges. To be fair, they’ve mostly come from less-familiar European brands and niche manufacturers. (Though Whirlpool’s own Amana line did introduce a floral refrigerator finish back in 2009. We’re still waiting for it to revolutionize interior design tastes.

But even with new finishes available, is stainless still king? It isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Almost all of the ovens that we’ve reviewed on OvenInfo.com are predominantly stainless. Almost all of the upcoming major-brand premium kitchen lines will still be stainless. Stainless is cheap to make, relatively easy to clean, and has become the standard for kitchen design—sensibilities don’t change overnight.

White Ice and other colorful finishes do seem to represent a shift in the way that we think about interior design: We’re doing it to please ourselves and create comfortable living spaces right now, rather than designing to boost resale value. Younger homeowners in particular seem to prefer the extra choices.

So what do you think? How long will stainless maintain its reign? Is color a passing fad? Does anybody really want an iOven to match their iPad? Aren’t they just tools for cooking and cleaning anyway? What colors will our robot maids come in?

Architects wrap buildings with Stainless Steel

With the pollen-rich landscapes of spring we discussed in our last post behind us and the sweltering days of summer beating down on our heads, the draw of cool shoreline breezes is tempting. What the casual beachgoer may not know, however, is that these waterfront locales often present challenging conditions that require special material applications to stand up to Mother Nature and ensure the longevity of coastal designs. Stainless steel plays a starring role in this success.

A popular medium in many design fields, stainless steel’s sleek finish and sharp lines appeal to both modern and contemporary sensibilities. Architects wrap buildings with it, industrial designers cloak gadgets in it, jewelry designers fashion accessories from it, and interior designers select it for kitchen sinks. Its corrosion-resistant properties also make it the best option for exterior applications in waterfront environments, compared to other metals (steel, galvanized steel, CORTEN steel, aluminum, iron, and bronze),— especially for brackish and saline waterways such as those of New York City’s coastal areas.

For our Hudson River Park Tribeca Section project, we designed a stainless steel railing at the pier’s edge, contributing to the installation’s longevity while enhancing the finish and aesthetic of this safety feature. Other cost-effective metals, like powder-coated or galvanized steel, were used for the park’s interior spaces. When designing with stainless steel, it is important that all attached metals, including connectors, fasteners, and anchors, are of the same material. Dissimilar metals in contact with stainless steel will accelerate corrosion and reduce the strength and lifespan of the product. This reaction is known as galvanic corrosion—a topic we’ll cover in a future post.

Steel Plate Product:

Stainless steel is available in a multitude of grades, each classified based on the percentages of the various alloy components present in the product. Altering the alloy content affects the metal’s characteristics, including its strength, corrosion resistance, brittleness, magnetism, etc. For example, Type 304 is the most widely used grade of the metal in landscape applications, whereas Type 420 is utilized for cutlery. Type 316 stainless steel, which has greater nickel content than Type 304, offers enhanced corrosion resistance in saline environments and is therefore typically specified for marine and waterfront landscape installations. Type 316 is slightly more expensive compared to Type 304, due to its alloy content, but its durability makes it a valuable investment. Type 316 stainless steel was used at our Hunts Point Landing project in the Bronx due to its proximity to Long Island Sound—a brackish waterway—whereas Type 304 was used at noteworthy non-marine projects including St. Louis’s Gateway Arch and New York City’s Unisphere.

Beyond the corrosion resistance and notable strength of stainless steel, the breadth of available finishes and forms is another appealing aspect of this metal for designers. It is available in multiple finishes ranging from the highly polished look often used for interior applications or jewelry, to brushed finishes that more easily camouflage fingerprints and light debris, to a bead blast—almost matte—finish. Bead blast finish works well in exterior applications, as it retains far less heat than polished surfaces—no one wants to sit on a scalding hot bench as they catch a summer breeze off the water! At our Fulton Landing Pier, a number of forms and finishes were integrated into the project’s decorative railing, including polished or blasted stainless steel pipes, plates, cables and anchors, which enhanced its aesthetic appeal.

Thanks to improved technology, stainless steel plate can be cut to almost any shape, freeing the designer from right angles, straight edges, or measured radii. Designers can provide their design drawings to fabricators who can then perfectly transform their 2D schematics into 3D forms via laser and water jet cutters. Our West Thames Park in Battery Park City incorporates stainless steel mesh and rods into a colorfully painted steel shade structure that provides dappled shade for now—until its twining vines are able to provide a dense canopy, woven throughout the overhead structure.

Appropriate material selection is integral to the success and longevity of built environments. Also crucial to the success of a landscape, yet seldom discussed, is soil. Hidden out of sight below plants, mulch, and pavement, this vital material will be addressed in our next post.

Characteristic Grades 304

Stainless steel grade 304 is the most versatile and widely used stainless steel. It is still sometimes referred to by its old name 18/8 which is derived from the nominal composition of type 304 being 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Stainless steel types 1.4301 and 1.4307 are also known as grades 304 and 304L respectively.

Stainless steel 304 is an austenitic grade that can be severely deep drawn. This property has resulted in 304 being the dominant grade used in applications like sinks and saucepans.

Stainless steel 304L is the low carbon version of 304. It is used in heavy gauge components for improved weldability. Some products such as plate and pipe may be available as “dual certified” material that meets the criteria for both 304 and 304L. 304H, a high carbon content variant, is also available for use at high temperatures.

Property data given in this document is typical for flat rolled products covered by ASTM A240/A240M. ASTM, EN or other standards may cover products sold. It is reasonable to expect specifications in these standards to be similar but not necessarily identical to those given in this datasheet.

Corrosion Resistance

304 has excellent corrosion resistance in a wide variety of environments and when in contact with different corrosive media. Pitting and crevice corrosion can occur in environments containing chlorides. Stress corrosion cracking can occur at temperatures over 60°C.
 
Heat ResistanceJustify Full304 has good resistance to oxidation in intermittent service up to 870°C and in continuous service to 925°C. However, continuous use at 425-860°C is not recommended if corrosion resistance in water is required. In this instance 304L is recommended due to its resistance to carbide precipitation.Where high strength is required at temperatures above 500°C and up to 800°C, grade 304H is recommended. This material will retain aqueous corrosion resistance.
 
Fabrication

Fabrication of all stainless steels should be done only with tools dedicated to stainless steel materials. Tooling and work surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned before use.These precautions are necessary to avoid cross contamination of stainless steel by easily corroded metals that may discolour the surface of the fabricated product.

Cold Working

304 stainless steel readily work hardens. Fabrication methods involving cold working may require an intermediate annealing stage to alleviate work hardening and avoid tearing or cracking. At the completion of fabrication a full annealing operation should be employed to reduce internal stresses

Hot Working

Fabrication methods, like forging, that involve hot working should occur after uniform heating to 1149-1260°C. The fabricated components should then be rapidly cooled to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.

Heat Treatment

304 stainless steel cannot be hardened by heat treatment. Solution treatment or annealing can be done by rapid cooling after heating to 1010-1120°C.

Machinability

304 stainless steel has good machinability. Machining can be enhanced using the following rules:

  • Cutting edges must be kept sharp. Dull edges cause excess work hardening.
  • Cuts should be light but deep enough to prevent work hardening by riding on the surface of the material.
  • Chip breakers should be employed to assist in ensuring swarf remains clear of the work
  • Low thermal conductivity of austenitic alloys results in heat concentrating at the cutting edges. This means coolants and lubricants are necessary and must be used in large quantities.
Welding

Fusion welding performance for type 304 stainless steel is excellent both with and without fillers. Recommended filler rods and electrodes for stainless steel 304 is grade 308 stainless steel. For 304L the recommended filler is 308L. Heavy welded sections may require post-weld annealing. This step is not required for 304L. Grade 321 may be used if post-weld heat treatment is not possible.

DURINOX ™ is developed mainly for the agricultural industries where corrosion and abrasion are often the major source of cost and quality problems.

Durinox™ is a registered trademark of Beyond-steel covering a range of ferritic stainless steel grades.

Durinox™ offers superior and low-cost solution to carbon steels and, in many cases, to austenitic stainless steels.

Durinox™ is developed mainly for the agricultural industries where corrosion and abrasion are often the major source of cost and quality problems. It is also often the case that many of the plants in agricultural industries were originally designed with carbon steels because of its low cost. In many cases, this proved a false
economy, since carbon steel performs poorly against corrosion and abrasion.

Durinox™ stainless steels is an excellent choice for agricultural industries as it is both chemically inert in contact with food and produce and also biologically inert which reduce the risk of micro-organism colony growth.

Durinox™ offers the following benefits compared to austenitic stainless steels and carbon steel:

  • Similar thermal expansion to carbon steel and lower compared to austenitic stainless steels, and there-
    fore it distort less when heated
  • Thermal conductivity that is much higher than austenitic stainless steels
  • High temperature oxidation resistance, they are less prone to scaling
  • Its mechanical properties are very similar to carbon steel making it easy to cut and work without the need of specialized tools. They are also less prone to spring back compared austenitic stainless steels
  • It is not prone to stress corrosion cracking
  • They can be used in temperatures to up to 600°C which is far better than carbon steel and is more than
    sufficient for most agricultural industries
