Rarely Known Facts Stainless Steel

Post  bejoy on Wed Aug 16, 2017 4:50 am

Stainless steel also known as iron steel and inox is a combination of metals with 10.5 Percentage of chromium content in it. Stainless steel is prominent for its corrosion resistance. It does not easily oxidize, rusts or stains with water as any other steel does. A common use for stainless steel is for cutlery such as knives, forks, and spoons.
What is chemical composition of stainless steel?
Stainless steel is accessible in a wide range of alloys that includes different elements; however the basic elements are iron, carbon and chromium. Low-carbon steel with no less than 12 percent chromium forms an even layer of oxide on its surface and is stainless. Other elements such as nickel and molybdenum are added to improve corrosion resistance and chromium is the deciding factor.Titanium, for instance, adds significant quality to the finishes items without adding excessive weight.Nickel and niobium are helpful agents to the chromium in resisting corrosion, particularly in low-oxygen conditions.
