Stainless steel has it all – top benefits

Safe and hygienic choice for all needs

One of the key advantages of stainless steel is that it is easy to keep clean for maximum hygiene. This is due to its smooth non-porous surface that prevents aggressive liquids like tomato juice or acid juices permeating into the material.

High performance and low maintenance

Thanks to its strength, durability and corrosion resistance stainless steel has a long service life. Stainless steel is protected by a self-healing passive layer, so it lasts much longer than competing steel materials protected by coatings, as they wear off over time.

Stainless steel is sustainable

Our stainless steel contains the highest proportion of recycled content on the market: over 85%. We are also Europe's largest recycler in the industry and committed to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.

Bars with a twist of sustainability

Morten Larsen is the owner of Temoco, a furniture provider for the leading bars and restaurants in the Nordics. Larsen has gone to great lengths to ensure that everything Temoco creates is as sustainable as possible. “We chose Outokumpu because they clearly show and act like a responsible producer of stainless steel.”
