The versatility and durability of steel makes it the perfect material for use in household appliances.
ArcelorMittal produces specific grades of flat steel products such as hot-rolled, cold-rolled and coated steels for use in a wide variety of white goods or appliances. Many of these items, including washers, dryers, dishwashers, stoves, and refrigerators, are made from recycled steel that is produced by major domestic appliance manufacturers.
For years, we have developed a variety of steel solutions for domestic appliances. ArcelorMittal’s extensive catalog offers steels which will meet any technical requirements including corrosion resistance, formability and mechanical properties. Our project teams work with customers to understand their product needs, ensure consistency in quality and provide technical and logistical support.
By weight, the typical household appliance consists of about 75 percent steel, all of which is recyclable. The steel used in appliances is usually made with an average of 25 percent recycled steel. In addition, internal steel components may be made using a significant amount of recycled steel—ranging from 25 to 90 percent depending on the grade of steel and steelmaking process—demonstrating once again how sustainable steel is as a material.
