South African developed 3CR12 is recognised as the original chromium utility ferritic stainless steel.
3CR12 was developed as an alternative material where the mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and fabrication requirements of other materials such as mild steel, galvanised, aluminium, or pre-painted steels are unsuitable.
3CR12 is a corrosion resisting steel and, as such, will exhibit staining when exposed to aggressive atmospheric conditions. In applications where aesthetic appearance is important, it is recommended that the 3CR12 be painted or that a stainless steel such as 304 be used.
