Uncover the numerous benefits of stainless steel.

What is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is a corrosion resistant steel that repels rust and remains intact against aggressive chemicals, liquids and gases that generally cause other materials to fray, disintegrate and fall apart completely.  Most of these classified steels display a powerful strength against extreme environments and are able to manage escalated and extremely low temperature levels making it suitable for a wide array of uses.

What Categorizes These Metals as Stainless Steel?

All stainless steels carry iron as the main element and include a chromium range percentage, which varies from 10% to 29% (approximately).  The chromium is what ensures the weathering resilient traits.  This composition differs from chromium-nickel stainless steel.

What is the Difference between Carbon and Non-Carbon?

Chromium-nickel stainless steels are metals that contain a small trace of carbon.  The problem with this is the carbon existence makes these materials not impervious to erosion.  This leads most consumers away from the carbon stainless steel options and more towards choosing other stainless steel grades for their next home and commercial projects.
