The characteristics make stainless steel suitable for lots of industrial and commercial uses, manufacturers should understand the stainless properties of stainless steel and how to retain the properties before and after machining. What we’ll talk about today is what makes stainless steel stainless, or to say, why stainless steel does not rust.
What is Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is a group of iron-based alloys and known for its corrosion resistance. The foundation of all steel is iron. The presence of at least 10.5% chromium prevents the iron from rusting. Stainless steel is not as tough as mild steel, but the trace additives like manganese, copper, and nickel can make steel stronger and still rust-proof. Different types of stainless steel include the elements carbon, nitrogen, aluminum, silicon, sulfur, titanium, nickel, copper, selenium, niobium, and molybdenum. Stainless steel is an irreplaceable material in the construction and mechanical industry, so it is commonly used in CNC stainless steel machining to manufacture standard or custom precision machined parts for the needs of our clients.
