The longevity of stainless steel is the result of the composition of the alloy and, therefore, it has a natural corrosion resistance. Nothing is applied to the surface that could add additional material to the environment. It does not need additional systems to protect the base metal, the metal itself will last.
Stainless steel’s durability is further enhanced by some of its other physical and chemical properties.
It is impervious to soot deposits, acid rain, bitumen compounds, cement or lime mortar, contact with timbers and wood-based sheets, fungi and mould. On a galvanic scale stainless steel is at the noble metal end and thus will not deteriorate when in contact with other metals.
