Automotive & transportation Stainless steel for ships

Stainless steel is the clear choice for use in marine environments – particularly for vessels that are ever lighter, stronger and easier to clean and maintain. It is also the accepted reference material for strong and corrosion-resistant sailing hardware (winches, rigging screws, anchors, cleats, carabiner snap hooks and cables).

Safety and efficiency are of paramount importance when it comes to transporting chemicals over seas and oceans. Stainless steel’s exceptional corrosion resistance, reduced weight and high strength make it the obvious choice when transporting precious cargo.

Outokumpu Forta is used in ships and tankers; Duplex plates in custom sizes deliver a tailored solution for cargo tanks. Ultra is used in flue-gas cleaning units.
