Stainless steel, or inox steel from French inoxidiable, is an alloy of steel with at least 10.5% chromium. This alloy has an impressive resistance to corrosion that acts like armor, rising with the chromium level. As chromium spreads across the metal’s surface, small oxides, otherwise known as chromia, cover it which act almost like a cushion and help to create a defense against rusting.

Stainless steel is celebrated for its fortitude and daunting defence against corrosion, not to mention its easy upkeep and glossy aesthetic. For this reason, it is a paramount material when the need arises for both power and protection from oxidation.

Where properties of steel and corrosion resistance are essential, stainless steel offers strength and durability that other materials cannot. By containing enough chromium to create a passive layer of chromium oxide, stainless steels prevent further erosion of the surface, making them invaluable for structures such as bridges, railway track, buildings, and construction where rust is undesirable.

A faint barrier, composed of chromium oxide, forms when the chromium in stainless steel unites with oxygen. Acting as a protective layer, this film is able to renew itself if the stainless steel’s exterior is harmed in any way. With this safeguard in place, the element is able to fend off potential corrosion.

Stainless steels are classified into three distinctive categories, which are differentiated by their microstructure. These are austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic grades.

Austenitic stainless steels are the type most commonly utilized for industrial purposes. Offering non-magnetic properties, they are built from chromium, nickel (as well as sometimes molybdenum) for added strength. 304 and 316 grades, specifically, are put to use within food and chemical industries across the world.

The ferritic group of stainless steels, including the 430 and 434 grades, are no stranger to the automotive industry. Unlike austenitic stainless steels, these steel types are not as hardenable but possess superior weldability. Not only that, they also contain chromium but little or no nickel and exhibit magnetic properties.

Differing in composition from the other stainless steel types, Martensitic varieties are able to be hardened and hosts superior weldability. The magnetism experienced in this group is thanks to the carbon and chromium present. Examples of these steels are 410 and 420 grades, widely used in construction projects.

Many products require stainless steel for diverse uses, such as:

– Handling and Refining Cuisine – Altering Compounds – Pulping and Papermaking – Generating Power – Purifying Waste Water
