Produced in a highly competitive industry, tankers and tank containers must be carefully conceived to meet both regulatory design requirements and functional needs. Stainless steel is essential for tanks that are light, strong and easily cleaned and maintained. Corrosion resistance is vital when transporting hazardous or corrosive chemicals.
Outokumpu Forta, Moda and Supra are commonly used in tankers; Forta range boosts safety and reduces vehicle weight. Supra is the good choice for tanks. Outokumpu’s ability to produce sheets up to 2,000mm/72 inch wide reduces costs by minimizing the number of welds needed.
Moda is ideal for use in bus frames, exhaust systems and trim parts. Impervious to extreme temperature deviations, Moda is strong enough to protect passengers in impact and requires virtually no maintenance.
