The Commission has set tariffs of about 25 percent for imports from China and of about 12 percent for Taiwanese product, following a complaint lodged in May 2014 by the European steel producers association, Eurofer.

The Commission presented its proposal to EU member states last week and on March 26 put in place the duties, which are provisional pending the outcome of an investigation due to end in September.

Stainless Steel: A sustainable material.

Stainless steel is a material which from its introduction has continued to be more popular and shown to be used in a large amount of applications.

Due to the hardness its durability is well known for its resistance to different types of oxidation due to the properties. It is easy to maintain and keep clean which makes it an excellent product to use within the catering industry as it will not corrode over time.

However, the sustainability of this alloy may be not so well known. We are dealing with a material that once it has finished is life it can then be returned to then be processed into a new alloy and this will not effect the properties of the material.

Nickel price rising up? Why to have to pay extra for a material that probably we do not need?

Over recent months we are experiencing a price hike of Nickel (as can be seen in this link). Good timing in order to consider the option for 201 quality, with less Ni (and therefore lower and more stable price) while a perfect replacement for 304 in numerous applications.

The AISI 201 or UNS S20100 quality is an austenitic stainless with high performance formulated to have a lower and more stable cost due to substitution of nickel (found in the series 300) with a part of manganese.
The resulting alloy has behaviour and properties which are comparable to those obtained in the 300 series; this is not the case for the ferritic alloy 430, which has significant differences, and often makes it impossible to replace 304.
