Although Vancouver is often the recipient of plentiful showers no matter the season, spring is usually the season associated with increased amounts of rain across the Lower Mainland.
Moisture and metal don’t often mix due to the rust associate with these combined factors. However, unlike most other metals, rust is not as much of an area of concern as it pertains to stainless steel. Especially stainless steel that has been treated to combat such concerns.
Stainless steel is often the metal of choice used in metal construction. Although interior framing comprised of metal would not be a concern for corrosion or rust, any exposed metal outdoors is susceptible to the elements.
How Can You Protect Stainless Steel from Rust?
Modern methods of rust prevention include ways to better safeguard stainless steel from rust. One of these methods is known as passivating. Passivating allows stainless steel to retain its corrosion resistance by producing high levels of surface chromium, creating a corrosion resistant passive surface.
