This webinar demonstrates the business benefits and sustainability implications of utilising duplex stainless steel in construction.
With a prospected 125 years of very low or maintenance-free life, and the consequent reduced demand for composite materials, the selective use of duplex stainless steel can reduce costs to the whole life of a project, thus offering a more sustainable design and construction option than commonly expected.
Drawing on their experience, industry professionals share case studies projects aimed at showcasing the top attributes and the best practices associated with duplex stainless steel, and explore how to overcome common challenges associated with the implementation of this family of stainless steel.
Discover the key attributes and costs benefits associated with using duplex stainless steel
Understand when to use duplex stainless steel and the positive impact this family of stainless steel can have on the life-cycle emissions
Understand the Eurocode-based design guidance available to use duplex stainless steel
Hear how duplex stainless steel was implemented in a ‘real life’ case study
Design and construction engineers working with steel
Architects and material specifiers
Graduate engineers, maintenance engineers and wider built-environment professionals not normally working with stainless steels who might wish to learn more about it
