  2. 2. The Intelligent Choice ARMINOX® stainless steel rein- forcement - the most maintenance free and economic solution for the construction industry in the world. Steel is the backbone of many constructions. Therefore quality and durability are essential. ARMINOX® secures the best and the most dura- ble solutions. We also know where and when it is worth selecting the individual steel qualities. In short: We offer our ex- perience and expertise to select the right stainless steel for the project and help save our customers money! ARMINOX® stainless steel reinforce- ment does not rust. Used for concrete structures it is therefore the certain way of avoiding corrosion related damage to the concrete – and sub- sequently comprehensive and expen- sive renovation. Using ARMINOX® stainless steel rein- forcement you are choosing the luxury solution. Our engineers know exactly, where it pays to use it. By intelligent use of stainless steel we assure a positive outcome to the bottom line.2

  4. 4. Forever Strong Corrosion free concrete structures are an advantage to the bottom line. ARMINOX® reinforcing steel guarantees this 100%. We know how it should be used: For the critical parts of all structures which are at risk from corrosion. For example where the piers of a bridge come into contact with sea water; where the columns abut bridge decks; where it is impossible to maintain or repair a structure. If renovation is carried out with stainless reinforcement future corrosion damage is prevented.4
