Stainless Steel Conduits Tackle Harsh Environments Electrical conduit strung through harsh environments requires a tough
exterior shell. One material stands above others in providing protection
for conduit in the toughest of conditions – stainless steel. Stainless
steel’s protective properties begin with corrosion resistance. The
chromium in stainless steel means a surface that is cracked or scratched
will generally “heal itself” by oxidizing over the abrasion to protect
against further corrosion. This can be particularly important in gaseous
environments like waste water treatment or chemical plants.
