The Shipbuilding Sector

Historically, the use of stainless steel in shipbuilding gained prominence during the mid-20th century when its superior corrosion resistance properties were recognized. Stainless steel’s ability to withstand harsh marine environments, including exposure to saltwater and extreme temperatures, made it an ideal material for ship construction. It offered excellent durability, reducing maintenance costs and extending the lifespan of vessels.

In recent years, the application of stainless steel in shipbuilding has expanded further. For instance, Gnee Company, a renowned steel products provider, has been at the forefront of supplying high-quality stainless steel for various marine projects. Our expertise lies in providing corrosion-resistant stainless steel grades, such as AISI 316 and duplex stainless steels, which offer superior strength, impact resistance, and resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.
