What is 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 properties.The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible, corrosionresisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen.There are more than 60 grades of stainless steel. However, the entire group can be divided into five classes. Each is identified by the alloying elements which affect their microstructure and for which each is named.

Commercial value of stainless steel

Stainless steel's resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, relative inexpense, and familiar luster make it an ideal base material for a host of commercial applications. There are over 150 grades of stainless steel, of which fifteen are most common. The alloy is milled into sheets, plates, bars, wire, and tubing to be used in cookware, cutlery, hardware, surgical instruments, major appliances, industrial equipment, and building material in skyscrapers and large buildings. See "Use in sculpture and building facades", below, for more.Stainless steel is 100% recyclable. In fact, over 50% of new stainless steel is made from remelted scrap metal, rendering it a somewhat eco-friendly material
The main benefits of Stainless Steel of enclosure can be summarized as below:
   1. Improved resistance to corrosion
  • One of the most important benefits of stainless steel. Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric and pure water environments, while high-alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions, and chlorine bearing environments, properties which are utilised in process plants.
   2. Increased durability, and therefore longevity.
   3. Fire & Heat Resistance
  • Special high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades resist scaling and retain strength at high temperatures.
   4. Reduced dirt adhesion for easier cleaning and maintenance.
  • The easy cleaning ability of stainless makes it the first choice for strict hygiene conditions, such as hospitals, kitchens, abattoirs and other food processing plants.
   5. Impact Resistance
  • The austenitic microstructure of the 300 series provides high toughness, from elevated temperatures to far below freezing, making these steels particularly suited to cryogenic applications.
   6. Results in a bright, reflecting surface.
  • The bright, easily maintained surface of stainless steel provides a modern and attractive appearance
   7. Easier cleaning, reduced build-up of products on the surface, reduced bacterial growth
   8. Reduced radioactive contamination and improved decontamination behavior.
