For passenger, freight, metro or light rail transit and metro systems, stainless steel carries the load effortlessly. A wide variety of grades enhance safety, reduce weight and resist corrosion.

Lightweight and high strength

A strong, lightweight material is essential in passenger vehicles. Our high-strength Forta and Supra grades and ferritic Moda grades are often used, with the added value of long service life. Deco surface finishes add elegance and easy maintenance.
