Stainless steel was invented in the early 1900s, before the First World War, as a result of the individual and joint efforts of European steel manufacturers and was patented in 1912. It has gone through various stages until today and has been used in a wide range of areas, providing great convenience and economic contribution to industry and daily life. It is especially used in the construction of products and facilities that require hygiene. The increasing use of stainless steel, which has become an important life culture today, is an indicator of quality and economic values.

Its adventure, which started in 1912 with the patenting of two qualities as V2A (today’s Cr 18 Ni 8) and V4A (today’s Cr 20 Ni 10 Mo 2), has today reached a very wide usage area with more than 120 quality types. They are generally grouped as Ferritic, Austenitic, Martensitic and Duplex.

The internal structural properties and crystal structures of the grades in each group are different, and their durability properties are suitable for different fields. Grades should be selected according to the desired durability properties in the fields where they will be used.

Stainless steels are materials that are essential and can be used safely when the demands of durability in the environments in which they will be used cannot be met with other cheaper metals or materials. In addition, air, water, liquid and other chemicals have the qualities and quantities to meet the hygienic requirements of the food and beverage industry.
