Brussels, 3 May 2012. The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) has released a new video to mark the centenary since stainless steel was first discovered and commercialised. The video will be shown at the 100 Years of Stainless Steel travelling exhibition which starts its journey around the world in Beijing, China, on 15 May. It will also be available on the dedicated 100 Years of Stainless Steel website – stainlesssteelcentenary.info.
As well as covering the history of stainless steel and its alloying elements, the video also features many applications for this remarkable material – from the past until today. It also outlines why demand for stainless steel has increased 10-fold in the 40 years since 1970 and why the industry’s long-term growth rate remains above 6%.
The video was prepared by ISSF in partnership with members of the Team Stainless Network which includes: ISSF, Euro Inox, the International Chromium Development Association (ICDA), the International Molybdenum Association (IMOA), and the Nickel Institute.
