What is Stainless Steel (S.S.) Work?
Resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and familiar luster make stainless steel
an ideal material for many applications where both the strength of steel and corrosion resistance
What is special about stainless steel?
Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by
weight. It is this addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion resisting
Why it is called stainless steel?
Stainless steel is called that because it doesn't rust or discolor, unlike regular steel or plain iron.
This is because of the chromium in the alloy. It's just enough chromium to cause a chromium oxide layer on the stainless steel
Why is stainless steel so important?
Stainless steel resists denting, nicking and scratching under the most vigorous of operating
conditions. Stainless steel provides excellent toughness, ductility, weldability, formability and
work hardening characteristics. Excellent cryogenic and high temperature oxidation resistance
is also provided
