Question 1: What is stainless steel?
As the name implies, stainless steel is steel that does not rust, but the material that keeps it shiny and does not rust is not steel, but its chromium alloy content. The chromium alloy can form a strong oxide film on the surface of the steel. Some stainless steel It also contains nickel. The price of stainless steel is usually determined by how much nickel it contains.
Question 2: Does stainless steel really rust?
Although the name is called stainless steel, examples of stainless steel rusting are everywhere in our lives. For example, staircase handrails that are exposed to the sun and wind will inevitably show some rust at the welding place, and after corrosion by special substances (mostly chloride ions), rust will also appear. Therefore, stainless steel does not completely rust, but it is less prone to rust than other rusty metals.
Question 3: Is there any difference between the types of stainless steel?
We know that stainless steel has the most basic five categories. The difference between these five categories is mainly the content of chromium alloys and nickel elements. Therefore, they have different oxidation resistance, hardness and strength. According to different models, we can choose the corresponding stainless steel materials in different application environments. For example, most kitchen utensils use 304 stainless steel (austenitic stainless steel), and tableware need to use food-grade stainless steel (through national food certification standards ), Instead of using industrial stainless steel.
