Stainless Steel

March 21, 2013

What is Stainless Steel -

Stainless steel is a generic term for a group of corrosion resistant alloy steels containing 10.5% or more chromium as well as nickel, molybdenum, titanium and niobium. Other elements may also be added to stainless steels in varying quantities to produce a range of stainless steel grades, each with different properties.

All stainless steels have high corrosion resistance. This is because a very thin, inert (meaning little or no ability to react), invisible film of chromium-rich oxide forms on the surface of the steel. This film tightly adheres to the metal & gives the metal its protection from corrosion. The film is rapidly self repairing when oxygen is present, therefore the metal can be quite easily & quickly repaired or restored if scratched or damaged

Benefits Of Stainless Steel
