Stainless steel is one of the widely used metals in the world today. It’s malleable, durable, doesn’t corrode and is relatively cheap. An alloy consisting of 10.5-11 percent of chromium content by mass, this versatile metal can be used for a variety of applications. One of the factors that make stainless steel so sought after is its low maintenance and luster. Commonly used to construct architecture for infrastructure like bridges and buildings, it will a long time before stainless steel is replaced by any other metal.


Designers of today are increasingly looking towards materials other than stone and wood to create amazing sculptures. Since steel has so much luster and can be molded into stainless steel pipe (In German : edelstahlrohr ), artists have been using it for many years to design pieces that are durable and detailed. Monuments like the USAF Memorial also use the metal as part of its structural skin.


Using stainless-steel tubing and other materials, Spain’s Cala Galdana Bridge was the first ever steel road bridge.

The San Fruitos Pedestrian Bridge, also located in Spain, is made of stainless steel.


While stainless steel may not be used to entirely build aircraft, certain components are created out of it. There is one, however, that was constructed wholly out of the metal. Called Budd BB-1 Pioneer, it was designed by Budd and is currently on display at Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute.

Automotive industry

There are several concept cars that have designed that use stainless steel. Back in the early ‘80s, the DeLorean DMC-12 made use of steel panels to cover a glass reinforced plastic monocoque.

Trains have been using stainless steel pipe (In German : edelstahlrohr ) for several years now. Back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, the trend was more popular as the metal added strength to the cars and increased safety.

One of the biggest benefits of stainless steel is its ability to be 100 percent recycled. Developed countries have a higher per capita stock in use compared to developing nations. There’s also a secondary market that deals in recycling steel with the resulting products consisting mainly of metal sheets and coils. They’re cheaper too and though they may sport a few scratches and dents, all products are recycled to specifications.
