Well suited to stand up to challenging corrosive and abrasive environments, Crompion International’s Cromgard Specialty Stainless Steels have a history of superior performance in the fire apparatus industry.
Low-cost, nextgeneration stainless steels, Cromgard C12 and C20-1 provide strength, corrosion and abrasion resistance, durability and low maintenance, as well as good weldability and formability, making them capable of fabrication by conventional techniques. Successfully used by various large-scale fire apparatus manufacturers, Cromgard C12 and C20-1 prove their worth for cab, chassis and body applications. Due to higher strength over 304SS and conventional aluminum, Cromgard C12 and C20-1 allow the ability to specify a thinner gauge and create a lighter-weight vehicle. Cromgard C12 is an excellent choice to replace coated carbon steel or other stainless steels where painting would be a requirement. If aesthetics are important, Cromgard C20-1 is well suited to replace 304/304L. In addition to supplying our sheet, plate and tubular products, we provide fabricated parts and assemblies to pre-determined specifications and ship them ready to use.
