Rail­cars in Stain­less Steel. A Sustainable Solu­tion for Sustainable Public Trans­port

Recent deci­si­ons to use stain­less steel for new metros and trams in Ger­many, Japan, Spain and Swit­z­er­land are based on the pro­ven long-term per­for­mance and low main­ten­ance of stain­less steel solu­ti­ons. Cost effec­tive fer­ri­tic stain­less steel is used where pain­ting is a requi­re­ment. Bare aus­te­nitic stain­less steel faci­li­ta­tes the remo­val of graf­fiti and makes the rol­ling stock visually attrac­tive. Their mar­ked work-har­de­ning pro­per­ties reduce mate­rial thick­ness and the­re­fore weight
