TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Basic Knowledge of Stainless Steel

What is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant alloy primarily composed of iron, chromium, and other elements. The inclusion of at least 10.5% chromium forms a protective layer on the surface, preventing rust and corrosion. Various grades exist, with different alloying elements like nickel and molybdenum, tailoring the steel for specific applications. There are several types of stainless steel-- austenitic, ferritic, martensic, and duplex.

Austenitic stainless steel, exemplified by grades 304 and 316, is non-magnetic, corrosion-resistant, and easily formable. Ferritic stainless steel has good corrosion resistance but is less ductile. Martensitic stainless steel is hard and is often applied in cutlery. Duplex stainless steel combines features from both austenitic and ferritic types with high strength and corrosion resistance.

FAQ

Machining Stainless Steel Buying FAQ

Stainless steel is highly corrosion-resistant, but it is not 100% stainless. The term "stainless" refers to its ability to resist rust and corrosion. Stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5% chromium, which forms a protective oxide layer on the surface, preventing rust. However, environmental factors, exposure to chemicals, and fabrication processes can affect its corrosion resistance.
Yes, stainless steel is weldable. Welding stainless steel requires appropriate techniques and equipment to prevent distortion, scaling, or loss of corrosion resistance. Common welding methods for stainless steel include TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding and MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding. Using the correct filler material and following proper welding procedures is essential to achieve strong and corrosion-resistant welds.
The ease of bending stainless steel depends on its alloy composition and thickness. While stainless steel is less malleable than other metals, it can be bent using specialized equipment and techniques such as press brakes. The bending process may require more force than softer materials, and certain stainless steel alloys may exhibit different levels of bendability.
No, stainless steel is not flammable. It is a non-combustible material that does not catch fire or support combustion. However, it's important to note that while stainless steel itself is not flammable, adjacent materials or substances in contact with it may have different flammability characteristics.
