Stainless steel products have a high resistance to corrosion, chemicals and heat. It is also mechanically stronger than other metals so is used in industries such as medical and food.
Applications within these industries use harsh chemical washdowns, extreme temperatures and can require hygienic properties. These are key properties that stainless steel are resistant to and therefore an ideal material to use.
Aesthetically stainless steel can look cleaner and more appealing, which is another reason stainless is chosen over alternative materials.
