'Stainless' is a term that has been adopted as a generic name for these steels which are iron alloys with a minimum of 10.5% chromium. Stainless Steel now refers to a range of steel types and grades noted for resistance to corrosion or oxidation. The Chromium content creates a thin layer of oxide on the surface called the passive layer. This layer prevents further corrosion of the surface. Increasing the levels of Chromium increases resistance to corrosion.
Stainless steel also contains varying amounts of Carbon, Silicon and Manganese. Other elements such as Nickel and Molybdenum may be added to impart other useful properties such as enhanced formability and increased corrosion resistance. strength.
Selection of the correct type or grade should be based on the corrosion resistance requirements of the application or environment. Then additional mechanical or physical properties may need to be considered to achieve the service performance requirements.
