ACERINOX is known worldwide as the one of the most competitive group in the world in stainless steel manufacturing. In production capacity, ACERINOX is the first world producer, with a melting output of 3.5 million Mt. It is formed by three flat products fully integrated production sites: Acerinox Europa, the Factory of El Campo de Gibraltar (Spain, established in 1970), the first one in producing more than one million tons per year (2001), North American Stainless, N.A.S. (Kentucky, USA, established in 1990), also fully integrated since February 2002, and finally Columbus Stainless (Middelburg, South Africa) that became part of the ACERINOX in the year 2002.
In February 2008 ACERINOX decided to carry out the new project in Malaysia. This decision taken after a thorough feasibility study, which included different alternatives, resulted in the construction of an integrated production plant in Johor Bahru, next to Singapore.
The project in its last stage will be a stainless steel integrated plant with 1 million Mt melting capacity and 600,000 Mt cold rolling capacity. Phase I is in operation since January 2012 and Phase II since first quarter of 2013.
In long products, Roldan, S.A. (Ponferrada, Spain), the very modern long products factory of N.A.S. (Kentucky, USA), inaugurated in 2002, and Inoxfil, S.A. (Igualada, Spain), are also leading international companies in terms of competitiveness of their production structure.


Product news

  • Extension of Monaco in the sea

    As a first step of the important project that Bouygues Travaux Publics is developing in the Principality of Monaco, in September 2017 started in Marseille the preparation works for the construction of 18 concrete caissons reinforced with stainless steel rebars, that will act as a protection barrier against waves. This structure of caissons, 26 meters high and 10,000 tons in weight each, will be the basis for the extension of 6 hectares of a new district of the city to the sea.
    In the photographs you can see the assembly work of these stainless steel rebars, made by the company SENDIN, manufacturer of the reinforcements in its plant in Teruel, Spain, with stainless steel rebars type duplex EN 1.4362, supplied by Roldan SA, which with its high resistance to corrosion in the presence of seawater chlorides, they will be able to assure the great durability and sustainability that this type of Project requires.


  • Floor / Checkered plate finishes

    Engraved type finish obtained by hot rolling. It is available for austenitic stainless steels. Surface finish according to type 1M defined by EN 10.088.
    - Good mechanical resistance in accordance with standards EN 10.088-2, 10.088-4 and ASTM A 240.
    - Non-slip property.
    - Rougher and more prominent finishes collect more dirt and debris, and more frequent cleaning may be necessary to maintain its appearance.

  • REBARINOX, new trademark of the Acerinox Group

    Among the latest products manufactured by the Acerinox Group, the stainless steel rebar designed for construction stands out, under a new brand, REBARINOX.
    - Long-lasting solution against the risk of corrosion by carbonation or in the presence of chlorides for reinforced concrete infrastructures.
    - Lower total cost during the more than 100 years of life cycle, which are currently required for new public infrastructures in different countries, taking into account the savings due to the absence of maintenance operations due to corrosion damage.
    - Its use is also competitive in the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete infrastructures already damaged by corrosion, both public and private, in which stainless steel rebar replaces the damaged reinforcement of carbon steel. The higher cost of stainless steel rebar is practically compensated by the savings in cleaning operations, with the greater necessary breaking of concrete cover for this, corrosion inhibitors and repair mortar. The final extra cost resulting from the repair with stainless will be small and already well paid back in a subsequent maintenance operation, that its use will prevent.
    -The inherent corrosion resistance of stainless steel may allow, in some cases, subject to current local construction regulations, to reduce depth of concrete cover , and a greater crack width in some aggressive exposure environments.
    -Its superior ductility and energy dissipation capacity versus carbon steel is considered advantageous for use in environments with risk of seismic load.

  • New system of repair and reinforcement of "violin Joists", with stainless steel

    According to a study carried out by the WCO (World Corrosion organization), worldwide expenditure on repairs to elements
    affected by corrosion amounts to approximately 3.2% of the world annual GDP, and also according to another CONREPNET report,
    approximately 40% of the repairs of elements affected by reinforcement corrosion fail within the first 10 years. The architecture studio Salmeron & Landmann has carried out the rehabilitation of a building affected by corrosion, located on the beachfront.
