Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a steel alloy that is known for its resistance to corrosion, rust and stains from water. However it is not impervious to staining as will happen in low oxygen, high saline and poor circulation environments. Some stainless steels are weldable, others are not. Stainless steel is used for both cosmetic and practical applications like cutlery and surgical instruments.

Standard Die has 50 years of experience with fabricating custom stainless steel metal stampings.
