Steel has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, without sustaining damage. Plastic will crack in cold temperatures and melt in extremely hot temperatures. Additionally, steel is corrosion resistant – no rust!
Steel is more durable than plastic.
Unlike plastic, steel is less likely to break and more easily modified. If it does become damaged, it is usually a dent which can be fixed. Steel products allow the flexibility of customization. There is no need for special mold tooling with steel.
Steel is actually less expensive than plastic.
When you look at the life span and durability of a steel product versus a plastic product of the same nature, steel will always last longer and require less maintenance than plastic. Although a steel product may cost more upfront, it will save you money in the long run.
