Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel

Short Description:

Stainless steels generally contain between 10-20%chromium as the main alloying element and are valued for high corrosionresistance. With over 11% chromium, steel is about 200 times moreresistant to corrosion than mild steel. These steels can be divided into three groups based on their crystalline structure: Austenitic: Austenitic steels are non-magnetic and non heat-treatable, andgenerally contain 18% chromium, 8% nickel and less than 0.8% carbon. Austenitic steels form the largest porti...


  • Length: 3-5.8mm or Customization
  • Surface: black, peeled, or rough turned
  • Heat treatment: air-cooling, normalized, annealed, Q&T
  • Smelting process: EAF+LF+VD

    Stainless steels generally contain between 10-20%
    chromium as the main alloying element and are valued for high corrosion
    resistance. With over 11% chromium, steel is about 200 times more
    resistant to corrosion than mild steel. These steels can be divided into







    three groups based on their crystalline structure:

    • Austenitic:







      Austenitic steels are non-magnetic and non heat-treatable, and
      generally contain 18% chromium, 8% nickel and less than 0.8% carbon. Austenitic steels







      form the largest portion of the global stainless steel market and are
      often used in food processing equipment, kitchen utensils and piping.

    • Ferritic: Ferritic steels contain trace amounts of nickel, 12-17% chromium, less than 0.1% carbon, along with other alloying elements, such as molybdenum, aluminum or titanium. These magnetic steels cannot be hardened with heat treatment, but can be strengthened by cold working.

    • Martensitic:







      Martensitic steels contain 11-17% chromium, less than 0.4% nickel and
      up to 1.2% carbon. These magnetic and heat-treatable steels are used in
      knives, cutting tools, as well as dental and surgical equipment.
