Stainless steel is a friend for life

Stainless steel is the product we know so well in our everyday lives. As a result, it is also the product that knows us so well.

Nickel and stainless steel are key to domestic products

According to Nickelinstitute.org

  • 12% of global Nickel production is used for major home appliances and mostly for stainless steel.
  • Nickel, which is a key component of stainless steel, is also used in many other domestic products, including heating coils of clothes irons, hotplates, toaster ovens, grills, electric blankets, heaters, soldering irons, thermostats and temperature control devices. In addition, Nickel is found in many internal parts of computers, phones, other high-tech devices, springs in wristwatches and heads of golf clubs.
