The latest brochure in the Sustainable Stainless series explains the role of stainless steels in the dairy industry and how they contribute to a sustainable solution for the human diet.

Stainless Steel in Tunnels

Stainless steel is finding increasing use in tunnels for its fire and corrosion resistance properties and long maintenance-free life. This new brochure in the Sustainable Stainless series provides detailed case studies which demonstrate why stainless steel is becoming the material of choice in road, rail, metro and long sub-sea tunnels.

Stainless Steel in Drinking Water Supply

Its inert and corrosion-resistant nature makes stainless steel an ideal material for contact with drinking water in all stages from extraction to domestic plumbing. Stainless steel is the only metallic material that is suitable for any usual drinking water composition.
This new brochure from ISSF explains why stainless steel is an ideal material for contact with drinking water and highlights applications in water intake, water preparation, water storage and distribution.
