 ==== ====For all the best ideas & tips on Indoor & Outdoor Furniture!http://www.welcominghomeinteriors.com ==== ====A stainless steel bar is basically steel which has been alloyed with non-corrosive or low corrosivemetals to give it stainless and low corrosive properties. Being able to withstand stains and beingless prone to rust and wear gives it a clear advantage over other types of steel and other metalsfor that matter. These properties make it more popular in manufacturing processes and particularlyin the production of kitchen utensils, barbecues, garden equipment and furniture. Mass produced steel is produced in lengths which are easy to transport, but can be forged incustom lengths for special fabrications. Steel is produced in a refinery and shaped into variousshapes including bars. Steel bar can be produced in a multitude of different shapes and specifications suitable for themanufacture of all kinds of products such as cutlery, tableware and saucepans. Steel bar is notonly used in the manufacture of kitchen utensils, it is commonly used in the production of allnumber of everyday objects, such as: Bus shelters and road signageTelephone booths and street furnitureBuilding facadesLifts and escalatorsSubway trains and station structuresFuel and chemical tankersComponents for the automotive industry Stainless steel is steel which has been produced not to stain, corrode or rust as easily as standardsteel. It is also known as CRES (Corrosion-Resistant Steel) in some industries where the mix ofmetal alloys is not detailed such as aviation sector. There are many different types of steel because different uses of the steel require differentfinishes, such as a polished reflective finish as used by cutlery manufacturers. It can be finishedwith many different surface textures and qualities; such as coarse, brushed, matte and even amirrored finish can be achieved. Composition of Stainless Steel BarStainless steel bar is typically composed of steel which has been produced by alloying severalmetals together with at least 10% chromium. Chromium is a high polish, high melting point andhard metal, which odourless, tasteless and is easily manipulated into other shapes or forms. Otherthan chromium, it is usually composed of varying amounts of nickel, nitrogen and molybdenum,
which affect its properties. It is the chromium content which gives steel its stainless properties. The chromium oxide forms athin layer on the outside of the steel which is un-detectable by the naked eye, which is self healingif scratched and bendable. Its re-healing properties are only active when in contact with oxygengas, if the steel is in use in a non-oxygenated environment, such as underwater, corrosion mayoccur more easily. Making Stainless Steel BarStainless steel bar and other steel products such as flats, sheet and wire are produced within ablast furnace. Within the furnace, carbon electrodes are aligned to make contact with amountsnickel, nitrogen and molybdenum at a very high temperature. Once the furnace reaches the optimum melting point the different metal alloys present fuse tocreate one metal alloy. Then the alloy is fed into an argon vessel where de-carbonization takesplace, once within the vessel, forging or casting can begin. Steel is very malleable and can be moulded into a variety of shapes, such as bar, rounds, flats,sheet and can be drawn into steel wire. Stainless Steel Bar Re-cyclingStainless steel bar benefits from being able to withstand high temperatures, both high and low aswell as high pressure environments, making it relevantly low maintenance. Low maintenancemetals can more easily be used in mass produced and heavily used objects, such as items usedaround the home like kettles, saucepans and cutlery. Once steel products reach the end of their shelf life they can easily be re-cycled because they are100% recyclable and still reach a good price on the scrap metal market. It is its recyclability thatmakes it a popular choice for the building industry because government regulations nowadayspush businesses to be as 'green' as possible. Stainless Steel Bar StockholdersSteel suppliers hold large quantities of steel bar, flats and tube products and are known asstainless steel stockholders. Some steel stockholders or suppliers offer additional services such assteel sawing, shearing, profiling and drilling. To find stainless steel stockholders who supply stainless steel bar products contact Chase Alloyson (044) 01543 573200  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Noah_Back
