Stainless steel – a sheet full of surprises!

What do you think of when you think of stainless steel?

On pipes, railings, sinks, elevators?

Maybe you're also thinking about lunch boxes, drinking bottles, fireplaces and pots?

This is already visually more appealing, but be sure, there is still room for improvement!

Why stainless steel is much more than practical and functional

Especially those of us who have little or nothing to do with materials management and materials technology in everyday life may never have thought about it so consciously until this moment... but to be very direct: Can you think of anything where stainless steel has been used really beautifully? An example where the practical aspect plays a role, but is not the first thing that catches the eye?

How about this?

Yes, that's stainless steel too:

And this is also stainless steel:

Stainless steel is full of surprises! Stainless steel is beautiful!

A steel with unexpected potential

Did you already know everything up to this point? All the better! In that case, you will already be familiar with the following points, right? If you've already enjoyed an aha moment or two in this article, we'll continue right here - with a special focus on "HFX stainless". ROOFINOX invented this stainless steel especially for roofs and facades. The sheet is full of wonderful surprises!

HFX stainless is durable

To give you a better idea of what this means, think of the famous Chrysler Building in New York City, or more precisely, the pointed roof of the skyscraper. It was completed in 1930, at that time still with the predecessor of ROOFINOX HFX stainless. This means that the roof, as it is today, has been enthroned on the 319-meter-high brick tower for 90 years. That's real longevity, because even after nine decades, the stainless steel still looks great!

Stainless steel is rustproof

If you've been reading this article, you know that HFX stainless can look really good. You may have known for some time that stainless steel is often used in professional kitchens or for various household items, for example. Such items are used on a daily basis, which means they have to be cleaned frequently. They are scrubbed and hosed down with water - if the material were susceptible to rust, it would have to be replaced frequently. But stainless steel is rustproof - even in private kitchens and bathrooms, on facades or on roofs. Stainless is practical and stainless is beautiful!

Stainless steel is sustainable

In fact, this point may come as the biggest surprise to you. But it's a pretty clear thing: ROOFINOX stainless steel is sustainable. To be precise, HFX stainless is by far the most resource-efficient sheet metal ever! Firstly, because it is so durable and therefore requires fewer resources for refurbishments and the like. Secondly, because it is 100% recyclable after use. What's more, at least 85% of the material used in its manufacture comes from recycling - an absolute record! Someone has to imitate that first.

Successful surprise?

What image do you think you will have in mind when you think of stainless steel in the future? Still elevators, sinks and drinking bottles? Or rather the Chrysler Building, impressive sculptures, modern kitchen units and elegant house facades?
