PROPERTIES

  SEISMIC PROPERTIES
…REVAL = HIGH DUCTILITY AND TOUGHNESS SUPERIOR TO BLACK STEEL

REVAL 1.4307 (304L) and 1.4404 (316L), due to their high content of nickel, a mineral of great toughness, are the most suitable steels for reinforcing structures operating in seismic areas.
   
  MAGNETIC PROPERTIES
REVAL is a paramagnetic steel, due to its low magnetic permeability.
It is used successfully in structures where disturbing strong magnetic fields have to be avoided, such as in airports, military bases, broadcasting stations, banks, meteorological stations, hospitals etc.
   
  STABILITY AT LOW TEMPERATURES
REVAL’s austenitic structure remains stable up to temperatures of -196°C suggesting its use in the coldest environments .
Several countries have already made compulsory the use of stainless steel in precast panels.
   
  BEHAVIOUR IN PRESENCE OF FIRE
REVAL, being an austenitic steel shows an excellent resistance to high temperature.
Its characteristics are:
Low thermal conductivity
A thermal linear expansion coefficient which remains stable despite temperature variation, unlike black steel
Permanent maintenance within safety limits of all its properties at critical temperatures (with 55% of residual 0,2% at 500°C).
   
 

… JOINING STAINLESS STEEL TO BLACK STEEL
REVAL can be easily and safetly joined, by lapping or coupling, to black steel.
Extended laboratory research has proved that corrosion is contained when stainless steel is electrically connected to black steel.

   

“the use of REVAL® guarantees the safety of concrete structures”
