Put simply, the benefits of a stainless steel exhaust are quality, performance and longevity.
It’s better to buy stainless steel exhaust components, unlike mild steel components, because they won’t rust or corrode when they’re scratched or scarred. Conversely, the assault of wet British weather and salt will eventually rust the alternative or zinc-coated mild steel exhaust systems. Moreover,in time, gases emitted from the engine will corrode these standard steel exhausts. But, owing to their durability, this simply isn't the case with stainless steel components – they cope far better with years of use and the conditions their exhaust systems have to face.
Nowadays, practically every exhaust component is built in stainless steel as well as the mild steel alternative. Indeed, with our commitment to supplying any and every exhaust component for both trade and public clients, at 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts LTD we pride ourselves on providing exactly the custom-built component – or combination of components – you need. We have years of experience and many satisfied clients to attest to our quality service.
And don’t doubt it, if you want efficiency and value for money, then our stainless steel products are what you need. Due to its durability, once the right stainless steel system has been fitted you’ll find it’s far less likely you’ll have to replace your car’s pipes and other components – if at all – unlike if you've chosen to have a mild steel system put in. Ultimately then, stainless steel is the cost-effective choice.
The quality, performance and longevity – the benefits of a stainless steel exhaust – are, of course, down to the composition of the material itself. Unlike mild steel pipes that often consist of coated aluminium or zinc over steel tubing, stainless steel pipes are made of absolute steel with a proportion of nickel and chrome to ensure they’re resistant to rust and corrosion. With mild steel pipes, the aluminium will protect the steel only until it’s scratched, after which moisture and dirt will inevitably get into the metal and result in worsening corrosion. Stainless pipes simply last longer; tube-painting or re coating isn't necessary.
Admittedly, from an aesthetic point of view, stainless steel pipes will naturally discolour over time, which is naturally due to heat. But this isn't necessarily due to a lack of quality –indeed, the pipes’ chromium shine can be brought back merely with some stainless steel polish and a soft cloth.
And, in terms of sound; don’t worry. Our stainless steel components will provide just the sound you want your exhaust to deliver. Plus, as 304 Stainless Exhaust Parts LTD is dedicated to supply the precise parts you need, we specifically work to find the components that give that deep, quality sound you’re after. Our parts look great, sound great and, owing to their stainless steel material, ensure smoother, easier flow through the system.
