Stainless steels are mainly selected for their corrosion resistance.
Stainless steels are made up of iron with a minimum amount of chromium for corrosion resistance. Other elements including carbon, nickel and nitrogen are added for different levels of corrosion resistance, strength, and formability.
There are many different applications for stainless steel alloys; springs, fasteners knife blades, medical/surgical equipment, filter screens, washers, rings and many other items.
To determine what grade of steel is best for an application, there are a few factors that must be considered; Corrosion resistance, Fabrication operation, Mechanical Properties and Product Availability.
Also, various stainless steel alloys offer different magnetic properties.
