About Stainless steel

Stainless steel is a type of steel whose main characteristics are rustlessness and corrosion resistance. Its chromium content is at least 10.5% and the carbon content is no more than 1.2%. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel mainly comes from its chemical composition, especially the addition of chromium, which makes it perform particularly well in weakly corrosive media such as air, steam, and water. In addition, stainless steel also contains other alloying elements such as nickel and molybdenum. The contents of these elements are different, forming a variety of stainless steel varieties with different properties and uses.

Stainless steel is widely used, from large-scale construction bridges, mechanical equipment, automobiles and home appliances to small cutlery tools, water cups, pens, and seat decorations. Stainless steel can be seen almost everywhere. It has good corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, high strength, is suitable for thin plates, has good weldability, can be processed at room temperature, has a clean and beautiful surface, and is suitable for maintenance.

Several common stainless steel models include austenitic stainless steel, such as 304 and 316. 304 stainless steel (18Cr8Ni) has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties, and is suitable for a variety of uses, such as household products, automobiles Accessories, medical equipment, building materials, etc. Compared with 304, 316 stainless steel (18Cr12Ni2.5Mo) has an increased nickel content of 12% and 2.5% molybdenum, so its corrosion resistance is further enhanced and is especially suitable for use in atmospheric environments containing chlorides.
