Stainless steel is a composition of various elements to enhance corrosion resistance of steel. The main alloying component in all stainless steel metals is chromium (10.5% minimum).
The most common type of stainless steel is the austenitic stainless steel which features grades 304 and 316 stainless steels. This range is known for its high resistance to corrosion because of its high chromium content combined with nickel.
Ferritic stainless steel is the second most popular. It includes grade 430 stainless steels. While this range doesn’t match the corrosion resistance of austenitic steels, it’s a cost effective alternative and is often used in the catering industry.
Martensitic steels have low chromium content hence low corrosion resistance but have high strength. Martensitic steels are ideal for applications that require incredible strength.
Pramac are a market leader in specialist materials handling solutions. Their range of stainless pallet trucks have been crafted to the highest quality.
Stainless pallet trucks
The Pramac stainless range were developed for use in environments where the hygiene demands are severe and where the truck is exposed to an aggressive environment and thorough cleaning.
