MB-Beams is the short form for a further group of beams sections. They are produced with parallel flanges with tolerances according to ASTM A 484, and being laser fused, the product standard is defined by ASTM A1069.
Miscellaneous stainless steel beams are used in commerce and industry but also in machinery and equipment building. The use of stainless steel profiles is characterized by a high flexibility of composition and a fast and cost reduced construction (through the possibility of prefabrication in the steel production). Stainless steel profiles are produced mainly from scrap and can be recycled again after utilization so new resources can be conserved.
The following austenitic grades are predominantly used for stainless steel structurals: 304, 304L, 316, 316L, they are defined by ASTM A276, ASTM A479 and ASME SA479.
