What is Stainless Steel


  We know that steel is an alloy of iron and carbon with a maximum carbon content of 2.1%.Stainless steels are a group of steels that are resistant to corrosion through the addition of alloying elements.


  The term stainless steel is used to describe a family of about 200 alloys of steel with remarkable heat and corrosion resistance properties.The carbon percentage can range from 0.03%to 1.2%.

  Its distinguishing characteristic is the high amount of chromium.Stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5%of chromium that improves its corrosion resistance and strength.

  The chromium in the alloy creates a passive layer on oxidation when exposed to air.This layer acts as a shield against further corrosion essentially making the alloy rustproof.This mechanism allows for retaining a spotless appearance for long periods under normal working conditions.

  Benefits of Stainless Steel

  Stainless steel has been used with phenomenal success in various industries for over 70 years.More applications are being discovered with every passing year as its advantages become more widely identified.

  With an increase in demand,production has increased making it more affordable than ever.Increased demand results in availability in standard as well as non-standard sizes.Also,a wide range of stainless steel finishes is available for choosing.

  Besides polished finishes,a whole range of patterned and coloured surfaces are available.This makes finding a suitable option for your needs possible.

  Stainless steel is also 100 per cent recyclable.In fact,half of all stainless steel production is from scrap metal.This makes it a relatively eco-friendly material.

  Use-Cases

  Stainless steel is an exceedingly versatile material.It is preferred where the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required in tandem.

  Its first use was in cutlery but due to its corrosion resistance properties.Next,it found its way to the chemical industry.Today,we can see stainless steel pretty much everywhere.

  The use-cases vary from industry to industry.For example,the uses include making minuscule parts for wristwatches.At the same time,large panels with a certain surface finish may cover whole buildings.
