  1. A fabrication and erection specification for stainless steel - DD ENV 1090 Part 6

    DD ENV 1090 Part 6 is the new fabrication and erection specification for stainless steel. It covers austenitic and duplex stainless steels used in buildings and other similar steel structures.

  2. Architects Guide to Stainless Steel

    Web Based Resource at www.steel-stainless.org/architects

  3. Architectural information about stainless steel

    This article describes the contents of the Architects' Guide to Stainless Steel, an online resource containing an extensive amount of architectural information concerning stainless steel. The topics covered include grade selection, product forms, durability, economics, production and fabrication, surface finish, joining, maintenance and cleaning. The computer aided learning package Stainless SteelCAL is also described.

  4. Austenitic stainless steel for timber fixings

    Austenitic stainless steels have excellent resistance to corrosion by acetic acid emitted by wood. They are NHBC recommended for a range of fasteners and fixings in timber. For use in immersed timber, the choice of grade depends on the specific water conditions, including chloride level and flow rate. Careful grade selection is also required for fixings in timber in swimming pool buildings.

  5. Austenitic Stainless Steels for Timber Fixings

    The causes of metal corrosion in wood are described and the hazard that acetic acid can be to metals when liberated from hardwoods such as oak, western red cedar and Douglas fir. Stainless steel types 1.4301 (304) and 1.4401 (316) can normally be considered for timber fixings, but timber immersed in river or seawater may require 316 or superaustenitic grades such as 1.4547 (254SMO) for fasteners. Swimming pool building roof areas are also a special case. Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistant grades such as 1.4539 (904L) or 1.4547 (Avesta 254SMO) must be considered for load bearing or stressed fasteners.

  6. Bimetallic (galvanic) corrosion risks from contact with galvanised steel or aluminium

    Bimetallic corrosion can only occur when two dissimilar metals are in 'electrical' contact and are bridged by an electrically conductive liquid. The risk of corrosion and staining when stainless steels are in contact with either galvanised steel or aluminium are described. (143)

  7. BS 6744 2016 (May) Update - Stainless Steel Bars, Reinforcement of Concrete

    Stainless steel bars – Reinforcement of concrete – Requirements and test methods

    This European Standard specifies the requirements and test methods for solid stainless steel bars used for the reinforcement of concrete. It is applicable to ribbed stainless steel bars in grade 500. Several significant changes have been made to the earlier standard version i.e. BS6744:2001 + A2:2009, ‘Stainless steel bars for the reinforcement of and use in concrete – Requirements and test methods’ 

  8. BSSA Stainless Steel Sections Directory - ALL PARTS

    The BSSA Stainless Steel Sections Directory 2006, Second Edition shows a comprehensive list of sections available from eleven UK suppliers. The Directory gives a list of all of the standard section types and sizes which are available, supplier details and a glossary of terms. The attached file contains all eleven parts, each of which may also be downloaded separately in order to carry out searches which can be printed.

  9. BSSA Stainless Steel Sections Directory: Part 01 - I Beam Section

    The Directory shows a comprehensive list of fabricated sections available from UK suppliers. The Directory gives a list of all of the standard sections sizes for I Beam Sections, which is available along with the grades and weights they can be manufactured in. It also contains a table of supplier details, a brief introduction into sections and a detailed glossary. This spreadsheet contains two workbooks for the I Beam Section shape. The ?I Beam Section PRINT? workbook enables you to print this part of the Directory and the ?I Beam Section SEARCH? spreadsheet allows you to use the drop-down menus to search for example for a dimension or method of manufacture. You can also print the search results.

  10. BSSA Stainless Steel Sections Directory: Part 02 - H Section

    The Directory shows a comprehensive list of fabricated sections available from UK suppliers. The Directory gives a list of all of the standard sections sizes for H Sections, which is available along with the grades and weights they can be manufactured in. It also contains a table of supplier details, a brief introduction into sections and a detailed glossary. This spreadsheet contains two workbooks for the H Section shape. The ?H Section PRINT? workbook enables you to print this part of the Directory and the ?H Section SEARCH? spreadsheet allows you to use the drop-down menus to search for example for a dimension or method of manufacture. You can also print the search results.
