Stainless Steel - 100 Not Out!100 years of Stainless Steel

2013 marks 100 years since stainless steel was discovered in Sheffield. The BSSA have selected 50 applications and features that demonstrate how stainless steel has influenced our lives so far.



A Moment to Remember...

Stainless steel sculptures last decades, making this the perfect material for creating a lasting memory. A wide variety of surface finishes are available, which give stainless its stunning appearance.

Commemorating all those who have served in the RAF and in Commonwealth air forces, a magnificent stainless steel eagle made of around 1,600 specially hand-forged feathers was erected at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Electropolishing was used to improve both the appearance and long term corrosion resistance.

Also, a stainless steel sculpture unveiled at Windsor to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee consists of a beautifully bent spiral decorated with 60 mirror polished circles. Each circle represents a year of the Queen’s reign.
