BENEFITS OF STAINLESS STEEL • Durable • Delivers good value–for–money as it outlasts zinc/galvanizing – overall a lower cost over the entire life cycle. • Attractive appearance – its look can be maintained. • 100% recyclable and non–toxic. ABOUT STAINLESS STEEL AND THE COMMON GRADES (304 & 316) • The majority of our products are mostly offered in both 316 `Marine Grade’ Stainless, applicable to coastal environments, and also 304 generally for interior applications or in low corrosive environments. • Stainless Steel has a naturally occurring protective film on its surface of `Chromium Oxide’. In 304, there is enough chromium to give good general corrosion resistance. 316 has more corrosion resistance than 304 with less chromium because of added molybdenum in 316. • 316 is more corrosion resistant than 304. • The general rule–of–thumb is: use 316 if in a corrosive environment (e.g. salt in the air) and the stainless steel product is ‘on show’. BEWARE OF LOW NICKEL STAINLESS STEEL!! • We are aware of low-nickel, high-maganese (200 series) stainless fasteners on the market. They usually have lower chromium and are more susceptible to rusting. • Star Hardware only deals with high quality, reputable suppliers. We also have a material testing programme in which samples from suppliers are sent over to 3rd party testing labs to provide quality assurance. THE ENVIRONMENT • This can have a significant impact on stainless steel’s performance. • If you are in the sea–spray zone or subject to salt–blow, and the stainless steel product is ‘on–show’, we would suggest 316 grade. • Exposure to rainwater is helpful – this should wash the salt and pollutants off the stainless steel.

THE FINISH The smoother or more polished the finish, the better the corrosion resistance. Some stainless products have a brushed, satin or ‘rougher’ finish – e.g. sometimes on hinges, fittings, downpipes. This can risk ‘tea–staining’, giving a rusty appearance. Electro–polishing or passivating (forms of acid treatment) improve corrosion resistance. GALVANIC CORROSION This is where two dissimilar metals are in contact, react and cause corrosion. For example, lead or copper flashings on a zinc/aluminium roof. Galvanic corrosion may be a risk for the other metals when they are in contact with stainless steel and the join is wet. We recommend investigating situations where you have concerns related to possible Galvanic corrosion. AVOID CONTAMINATION FROM TOOLS This is where your tools pass on minute contaminants (e.g. iron filings). These rust on the surface of the stainless steel and kick–start corrosion. How do you reduce the risk of this? • Driver/Screw Tips should be Chrome Vanadium steel. • Allen Keys should be Hardened–Chrome plated • Cutting Wheels should be made from Aluminium Oxide, be ‘iron’ or ‘carbon steel’ free, or be labelled “For Stainless Steel”. • Hammers should be good quality hardened–chrome plated steel or stainless steel. • NB: all these tools should be kept just for stainless steel. LUBRICATING THREADS Star Hardware, along with leading stainless fastener engineers, recommends that all stainless steel threads should be lubricated before being assembled, to reduce the risk of galling (this is when threads lock up and `cold weld’). We have found the greatest risk of galling occurs with larger thread diameters, and also when using Nyloc Nuts.

GUIDELINES FOR INSTALLING STAINLESS STEEL PRODUCTS Recommend to your clients to wash the surface regularly Weld Treatment – pickling treatments after welding are a must for good performance of stainless steel. This chemical treatment removes the welding oxide and rapidly restores the passive layer, which gives stainless steel its corrosion resistance. Cutting Stainless Steel – an aluminum oxide cutting wheel/blade should be used. Design, Fabrication and Handling – poor design and fabrication can lead to tea staining or more serious corrosion. For example, good designers will avoid crevices, such as intermittent welds and areas where water can collect. Competent stainless steel fabricators will avoid carbon contamination. Choose designers and fabricators experienced with stainless steel. Installation and Inspection – after installation the completed structure should be inspected for surface imperfections or contaminants. If discovered, imperfections should be removed and the corrosion resistance chemically restored by pickling or passivating treatments or by electropolishing. Hydrchloric acid which is sometimes used to clean cement or mortar residues should not be used on stainless steel. Appropriate grade selection – grade 316 should be selected within 5 km of the coast. Specify and insist on a smooth surface finish – to minimise the risk of discolouration, the smoother the surface finish the better. A surface roughness (Ra) of less than 0.5 micrometres is strongly recommended. A No.4 finish is not adequate. Typically, refinishing operations using 320 abrasives would achieve a finish better than 0.5 micrometres Ra. Components used near the sea can be made more resistant to tea staining by pickling to remove surface contaminants, electropolishing is even more effective. However, it must be noted that both processes can change the surface appearance – pickling tends to dull polished surfaces while electroplating will brighten surfaces. 316 stainless steel electro– polished is the ideal finish for coastal environments. Chemically treat the welds – the best resistance to tea staining is achieved with a finish polished to 320 grit or finer, but linished or pickled finishes (only) may be adequate for less critical applications. Where a linished finish is desired, 320 grit (or finer) silicon carbide abrasives should be used with lubrication if possible. In these circumstances a passivation treatment (nitric acid only) should be applied to the ground/polished area. In selecting abrasives consideration should be given to matching the surrounding finish. Where linishing is not performed, pickling of site welds (using mixed acids – hydrofluoric plus nitric) should take place as a final step in the weld procedures. bright surface finishes.

STAINLESS STEEL - MAKE IT GREEN, MAKE IT ECONOMICAL MAKING IT GREEN 100% Recyclable: stainless steel can be reduced and recycled. Recycling from scrap metal accounts for about 90% of stainless steel’s production. Non-Toxic Production: production of stainless steel fasteners and other items do not require use of plating or coatings which are environmentally hazardous MAKING IT ECONOMICAL

Cost vs Time Comparison between Steel and Stainless Steel

TIME

Steel

Although stainless steel may cost more initially, when comparing the length of its useful life and its other properties, it is more cost-effective than alternatives. For example, it is more corrosion-resistant than carbon steel, galvanized steel, and longer lasting and is stronger than polymer products, like GRP. The overall Life Cycle Cost of stainless steel makes it the smart choice.
