Stainless steel is a type of steel that is composed of various elements including iron, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and niobium. The minimum chromium content in stainless steel must be 10.5% which gives it the unique ability to resist corrosion, staining and rusting compared to traditional steel. The addition of other elements enhances the overall strength and durability of the material.
This makes stainless steel a popular choice for many industries and applications that demand high performance and longevity. Aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, oil and gas, construction, and many others use stainless steel due to its strength, resistance to wear and tear, and its ability to withstand harsh environments.
Stainless steel comes in a wide range of forms, grades, finishes, gauges, widths, and lengths, making it versatile and suitable for a variety of applications. It can be found in many products such as cutlery, cookware, medical equipment, and even in high-performance race cars.
