Road tankers and buses

Stainless steel for road tankers and busses

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.

Light, strong and easily cleaned

Outokumpu Forta, Moda and Supra are commonly used; Forta range boosts safety and reduces vehicle weight. Supra is the best choice for tanks. We can produce sheets up to 2,000mm/72 inch wide to reduce costs by minimizing the number of welds needed.
