Stock Up on Steel for All Your Summer Projects

With the summer right around the corner, now is the best time to begin work on new projects. Ensuring that your projects are not only successful, but long lasting, means that in addition to the skill you already have, you simply need the right materials. To ensure that you get the materials you and your project deserve, we here at Atlas Steel are selling the finest steel products on the market. Today, we’ll be investigating the different qualities of the steel that we sell to give you the best information possible when making your steel purchases and getting to work on those summer projects.

Properties of Atlas Aluminized Steel

As steel manufacturers, we take pride in the wide variety of steels that we create and refine. One such steel we sell is aluminized steel, which excels at heat resistance and maintaining its shape. Our aluminized steel at Atlas is capable of withstanding heats up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing it to maintain its shape and structural integrity among even some of the hottest conditions. Thanks to this property, aluminized steel is ideal for purposes such as creating bakeware such as baking sheets, as it will evenly hold nearly any heat necessary for cooking again and again. Furthermore, the aluminum coat will protect any aluminized steel creation from corrosion as long as the coat remains in place. Where steel tends to rust over time, the aluminum coat acts as a barrier between the elements and the steel itself, protecting the steel against corrosion.

Stainless Steel for Every Project on Your Agenda

By combining steel and chromium, we create a wide variety of stainless steels for a vast array of practical applications. Some of our most popular grades of steel are stainless steels 304 and 316, which are medical-grade in the field of steel manufacturing. These steels are some of the most reliable and visually stunning while still capable of easily being into different shapes, which make them perfect for creating anything from scalpels to machine parts to art installations. Additionally, 316’s addition of molybdenum greatly increases corrosion resistance, making it ideal for long-term use. The molybdenum-infused steel additionally makes 316 steels particularly equipped for applications and environments that will expose the steel to large amounts of acid, since molybdenum has a high acid resistance.
