  • characteristics
  • The difference in expansion characteristics between rubber and braided stainless steel brake lines is a result of differences in hose construction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Coated braided stainless steel hoses have the same essential construction as rubber hoses in terms of an inner hose wrapped in a braid followed by an outer layer, but the different materials in the braided stainless steel hoses offer substantially different and arguably better characteristics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Producers
  • Yet most steelmakers know that for every boom in the industry comes the inevitable downturn, which is the reason most steel producers have deliberately avoided gearing up production to fulfill the current demand. (nytimes.com)
  • But in the stainless steel segment of the industry in the United States, led by the Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, producers are toiling to keep up with record demand for their product. (nytimes.com)
  • While the output of stainless steel remains fairly small compared with the overall steel production in the United States, the high prices commanded by stainless steel makes it an important component of producers' financial results. (nytimes.com)
  • continued good
  • Even so, the continued good prospects for stainless steel have prompted positive reports from analysts for at least J& L, whose stock was recently upgraded to a "moderate outperformer" by Goldman, Sachs & Company, and to a "strong buy" by Kidder, Peabody & Company. (nytimes.com)
  • manufacture
  • Although there have been no big technological breakthroughs in the manufacture of stainless steel, the makers continue to tinker with the recipe. (nytimes.com)
  • 316 surgical steel is used in the manufacture and handling of food and pharmaceutical products where it is often required in order to minimize metallic contamination. (wikipedia.org)
  • ASTM F138-compliant steel is also used in the manufacture of body piercing jewellery and body modification implants. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • The most common uses for stainless steel fibers is in the field of the electrical and textiles industry such as anti-radiation cloth, thermal resistant fabric, and anti-static brushes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Increasingly common today are stainless steel fibers in clothing, including radiation protection for pregnant women [ citation needed ] . (wikipedia.org)
  • Braided stainless steel brake lines are a common aftermarket upgrade, purchased and installed after a vehicle is initially purchased. (wikipedia.org)
  • exhibits
  • When the cost difference is extrapolated across hundreds or thousands of units, it is quite compelling to opt for the rubber option, especially when the use case exhibits that the operator will not need or want the additional capabilities offered by a brake system equipped with braided stainless steel brake lines. (wikipedia.org)
  • types
  • are in various states of revamping and recovery from changes in ownership or money-losing efforts in other, lower-priced types of steel. (nytimes.com)

  • James Bolivar diGriz, alias "Slippery Jim" and "The Stainless Steel Rat", is a fictional character and the antihero of a series of comic science fiction novels written by Harry Harrison. (wikipedia.org)
  • Harrison used the story, with minor modifications, as the introduction to the series' first full-length novel, also called The Stainless Steel Rat. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are 13 works in the Stainless Steel Rat series. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the tribute anthology Foundation's Friends, Harrison wrote a story, The Fourth Law of Robotics, which featured the Stainless Steel Rat in the setting of Isaac Asimov's Robot series. (wikipedia.org)
  • It thus stands to reason that braided stainless steel brake lines are typically only seen on upmarket motor vehicles such as hot-rods and supercars, or on race-prepped vehicles such as those used in Formula One and touring car series. (wikipedia.org)
  • larger
  • I love the style, the larger size, and the quality this stainless steel textured ring offers. (kohls.com)
  • Since iron oxide occupies a larger volume than the original steel this layer expands and tends to flake and fall away exposing the underlying steel to further attack. (wikipedia.org)
  • variety
  • For additional variety, stainless steel yarns are twisted with other fibers such as wool , nylon , cotton , and synthetic blends to produce yarns which add novelty effects to the end cloth. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • This passive film prevents further corrosion by blocking oxygen diffusion to the steel surface and thus prevents corrosion from spreading into the bulk of the metal. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus the assertion that braided stainless steel hose is superior as compared to a typical rubber hose when used in a hydraulic brake system. (wikipedia.org)
  • outer
  • It has a flexible corrugated stainless steel inner layer and an outer yellow or black plastic jacket. (wikipedia.org)
  • Where rubber hoses typically consist of a rubber inner hose wrapped in a textile reinforcement braid then covered in an additional rubber outer sheath, braided stainless steel hoses typically consist of a Teflon® or generic PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) inner hose wrapped in a braid consisting of stainless steel wire.

  • instead
  • Whereas Kids Konserve's plastic-free lunch kits were driven by environmental considerations, a new line of stainless steel lunch containers was inspired instead by concerns over bisphenol-a, or BPA. (springwise.com)
  • In light of the above, it is reasonable to ask why rubber brake hose is used at all, instead of always using braided stainless steel hose. (wikipedia.org)

  • Stainless steel, specifically in the form of sheets and coils, was at the center of the dispute. (wikipedia.org)
  • metal
  • It is hard to find any long-term growth in basic steel, but the underlying demand for stainless steel has been growing faster than economic activity, which is unusual for a metal," said Charles A. Bradford, an analyst with UBS Securities. (nytimes.com)
  • The company, the biggest domestic producer of stainless steel, derives 86 percent of its revenue from the metal, which it produces in nine plants, situated in western Pennsylvania, as well as Claremont, Okla. (nytimes.com)
