Stainless Steel, which is a form of steel containing chromium, is resistant to tarnishing and rust and due to its versatility, there are a wide range of fabricating techniques that can be applied. Although usually known for its corrosion resistant characteristics, stainless steel has a long life cycle, is malleable enough to be bent, folded, machined, welded, deep drawn, or spun and is 100% recyclable.

Stainless Steel is best known for its corrosion resistant characteristics but in more recent years its usage has gained popularity for an elegant finish to architectural projects.

There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit every application with the three most common finishes being matte, mirror and brushed.
