NAS supplies material to museum in Washington, D.C.
08 December 2020
North American Stainless, Acerinox Group's stainless steel plant in the U.S.A., has supplied the material for the construction of more than 10,000 square meters of panels that have been used to clad the building complex of the National Museum of the United States Army in Fort Belvoir, on the outskirts of Washington, D.C.
The stainless steel manufactured by NAS was treated with an additional satin polish to reduce reflectance. NAS supplied the material in 3 mm thick coil form, which, for its installation, was cut into panels of 1 m wide and 6 m long. The decision to manufacture the panels in stainless steel T316L was the result of needing to meet strict requirements related to corrosion resistance, and for its excellent thermal stability and state-of-the-art aspect.
