Consider plating and coatings instead of stainless steel where possible

Many converting applications require the web processing and handling components are resistant to corrosion and degradation. Some require minimizing particulate, as in a clean room environment. Most of the time stainless steel components are supplied where these application requirements arise. However, stainless steel can be expensive and difficult material with which to work.

An alternate to stainless steel may be to plate standard carbon steel parts with chrome or nickel. Aluminum parts can be anodized or hard-coat anodized to improve resistance to corrosive environment and wear and tear.

Chrome and nickel plating and using anodized aluminum where possible can save dollars when compared to manufacturing specific parts from stainless steel.
