Stainless Steel Shackles – High Resistance
Stainless steel is one of the most resistant metals around. The addition of chromium during the manufacturing process creates a chromium oxide film on the finished product; it is this which gives stainless steel its high resistance. Stainless steel shackles have high corrosion resistance and are popular throughout the marine industry and aviation industries as well as oil and gas. Stainless steel shackles are strong, resilient and versatile and it is because of this that it has become an important piece of equipment in many industries.
Stainless steel shackles also boast a more pleasing appearance than the galvanized steel version making them ideal for use in more architectural applications. Yacht rigging, stair balustrades, decking and other barriers are all common places where you may see a stainless steel shackle, though they are used in a vast array of areas.
Stainless steel shackles may cost a little more but they are strong and highly corrosive resistant and so have a key advantage over normal steel.
