Stainless steel is a versatile material composed of a steel alloy and a small percentage of chromium. The chromium presence contributes to the corrosion resistance of the material, a quality that acquired its name from stainless steel. Since stainless steel is also low-maintenance, resistant to oxidation, and does not damage other metals it comes into contact with, it is often used in a wide variety of applications, especially in the manufacture of piping and tubing. Stainless Steel Tube is broken down into several groups depending on the end-use of the pipe.
What are the alloys of stainless steel made of?
Stainless steel is by definition an iron alloy that contains at least 10.5% chromium. The types of alloys on the market are tremendously diverse, and each varies in its specific chemical shape. Increased strength, formability, and other stainless steel properties by mixing elements, such as Nickel, Molybdenum, Titanium, Carbon, Nitrogen, and Copper.
