As a reliable and sustainable material, stainless steel is used at several levels in the energy chain, from the offshore wells in the Oil and Gas industry to the hot water tank coupled with photovoltaic panels, as well as in such process industries as petrochemical and chemical, among others. The diversity of the service conditions, combined with cost efficiency, have permitted the development of a lot of different stainless steel grades.
