Set Sail With Arbor Metals TM

Undoubtedly, the integration of steel into ship building practices has revolutionized maritime capabilities. There are many steel grades available, and each one offers unique performance characteristics. As a result, ships can be built larger, last longer, and better withstand harsh environments in port and at sea.

Before steel, ships were primarily built from wood. Neither as durable nor as water-resistant, the material was much less suitable for the application.

It may appear that ships are constructed from the same steel type, but that’s not the case. Here are some common materials used in ship building. 

  • Carbon Steel With High Tensile Strength
  • Galvanized Carbon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Specialty Steel Alloys

Primary uses of steel in ship making include: 

  • Rudders
  • Frames
  • Engine Parts
  • Doors
  • Propellers
  • Shell Plating
