Stainless Steel

Stainless is composed of some of the basic elements found in the earth; iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen and manganese.

Properties of the final alloy are tailored by varying the amounts of these elements to improve tensile properties like ductility.

Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in the atmospheric and pure water environments, while higher grades can resist corrosion in most acid, alkaline solutions’, and chlorine bearing environments, properties which are utilized in processing plants.
