What is Stainless-Steel ?

Stainless steel (SS) is a corrosion-resistant alloy of iron, chromium, and other elements like nickel, carbon, and molybdenum. It is known for its ability to resist rust and common forms of corrosion. The high chromium content in stainless steel forms a thin oxide layer, known as a passive layer, which contributes to its exceptional heat and corrosion resistance properties. Stainless steel offers improved corrosion resistance in specific environments and enhanced oxidation resistance. Apart from its resistance to corrosion, stainless steel offers several advantages. It is easy to fabricate, providing flexibility in various applications. Stainless steel also has aesthetic appeal, with its sleek and clean appearance. It possesses excellent tensile strength and can withstand both low and high temperatures. Moreover, stainless steel requires low maintenance, making it cost-effective in the long run. It is also environmentally friendly and recyclable, contributing to sustainability efforts. Additionally, stainless steel products have a prolonged lifespan, making them a durable choice. Due to its exceptional properties, stainless steel is widely used across various industrial sectors. It finds applications in automotive, transportation, building and construction, railways, consumer goods, mechanical engineering, and heavy industries worldwide. Its versatility and reliability make it a preferred material in numerous manufacturing processes and structural components.
