What is Stainless Steel? Stainless steel can be used to refer to a variety of steel types and not just one alloy. It can be used to describe a variety of iron-based alloys that contain at least 10.5 percent Chroium (Cr). To increase the metal's strength and resistance to corrosion, many other elements can be added.   Chromium is the most important element in stainless steel for its corrosion resistance. The 'passive' layer is formed by the Chromium in stainless steel. It forms an oxide layer on the surface. You can increase the corrosion resistance of stainless steel by adding more Chromium. This will result in a stronger protective passive layer. Some stainless steel grades are more resistant to saltwater corrosion than others. This passive layer doesn't make stainless steel invulnerable to corrosion. If stainless steel is exposed to saltwater and other corrosive environments over time, it can rust or corrode.   What makes Stainless Steel stand out from other alloys?Aluminum is lightweight, but it is not resistant to corrosion in seawater. It also requires significant maintenance. Carbon steel typically contains at least 95 percent iron, and as much as 2 percent carbon. Higher carbon content means stronger steel. Stainless steel is mainly composed of iron. However, the chromium content must not exceed 10.5 percent. The carbon content is much lower, at 0.08 percent. Stainless steel does not get its strength from this carbon component. It is primarily dependent on its metallurgical structure to ensure its strength. It must be heated to strengthen carbon steel. However, this is not possible for the 300 series stainless steel. They are often strengthened by hardening the structure.
