  Stainless Steel
Pure iron, the primary element of stainless steel, is extracted from its natural state as iron ore, it is unstable by itself, and naturally wants to corrode (rust).
Austenitic stainless steels are hardened and strengthened through cold working (changing the structure and shape of steel by applying stress at low temperature) instead of by heat treatment.
Ferritic stainless steels are plain chromium steels with no significant nickel content; the lack of nickel results in lower corrosion resistance than the austenitics (chromium-nickel stainless steels).

 What is Stainless Steel?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Stainless steel is the name given to a group of corrosion resistant and high temperature steels.

 Stainless_article
Stainless steel is similar to mild and alloy steels; it is an alloy of iron that contains at least 12% chromium.
Some stainless steels are known as low carbon grades to minimize this carbide precipitation; others, such as 321, are special alloys that reduce carbide precipitation by combining and stabilizing the chromium at elevated temperatures.
Stainless steel performs this function without the need for add-ons because it has a much lower coefficient of thermal conductivity, thereby keeping more heat inside and transmitting it to the header outlet.

 Stainless Plate Products - White Paper, Stainless Steel
Stainless steels are primarily used when corrosion or oxidation is a problem.
The austenitic stainless steels, because of their high chromium and nickel content, are the most corrosion resistant of the stainless group providing unusually fine mechanical properties.
Carbon in steel when heated to temperatures in what is called the critical range (800 degrees F to 1600 degrees F) precipitates out, combines with the chromium and gathers on the grain boundaries.

Stainless steel, a classic look that never goes out of style, is the choice for countertops by professional cooks, restaurant and food service facilities.
Steel is iron alloy that has a low carbon content (up to 1.7%), and low sulfur and phosphorus content (less than 0.04 %), making it malleable (capable of being extended or shaped by beating with a hammer or by the pressure of rollers).
Stainless steel countertops are fabricated off-site from a template, much the same way as are solid surface materials.

 Stainless Steel Information, Selection and Fabrication Notes
Stainless steel is a preferred material whenever hygienic processes or in-service corrosion is anticipated.
The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen.
There are many grades of stainless available, some having been developed for quite specific applications, and there are various international non-profit organisations, dedicated to the promotion of stainless.

 Stainless Steel - Magnetic Properties
All stainless steels, with the exception of the austenitic group, are strongly attracted to a magnet.
Any austenitic (300 series) stainless steel which has developed magnetic response due to cold work can be returned to a non-magnetic condition by stress relieving.
For corrosion resisting applications there are ferritic stainless steels which are magnetically soft, usually variants of a grade "18/2" (18% chromium and 2% molybdenum) but with very tightly controlled additions of silicon and often with sulphur added to make them free machining.

 Stainless Steel Info
Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight.
The longevity of stainless is the result of the alloying composition and, therefore, it has a natural corrosion resistance.
Stainless steel needs less maintenance and its hygienic qualities means that we do not have to use harsh cleaners to get a clean surface.

 Stainless Steel - All Metals & Forge
Ferritic stainless steels are magnetic and retain their basic microstructure up to the melting point if sufficient Cr and Mo are present.
Martensitic stainless steels are used where strength and/or hardness are of primary concern and where the environment is relatively mild from a corrosive standpoint.
Compositions of most precipitation-hardening stainless steels are balanced to produce hardening by an aging treatment that precipitates hard, intermetallic compounds and simultaneously tempers the martensite.

 Stainless Steels
Most Duplex stainless steels are intended to contain around equal amounts of ferrite and austenite phases in the annealed condition.
Duplex stainless steels generally have similar corrosion resistance to austenitic alloys except they typically have better stress corrosion cracking resistance.
Precipitation-hardening stainless steels may be either austenitic or martensitic in the annealed condition.

 CNC Machine Shop - Experts in Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is corrosion resistant due to a "passive", chromium-rich, oxide film which forms on the surface of the steel.
For example, since stainless steel does not need to be coated, in the long run, it may be less expensive because there are cases wherein the cost of coating a part is more expensive than using stainless, (since stainless does not need to be coated).
Since stainless is non-corrosive, it is best for products that will remain outdoors, products that are repeatedly exposed to elements that would otherwise be damaging to steel and any parts that are critical to function for extended periods of time.

 Stainless steel
The stainless steels owe their resistance to corrosion to the presence of chromium.
Today, there is a range of steels from the plain chromium variety to those containing up to six alloying elements in addition to the usual impurities.
Thus, in oxidising environments, such as nitric acid, the high chromium steel is initially attacked at the same rate as ordinary plain steel, but it rapidly builds up an oxide film, known as a self-healing passive-film, which efficiently protects the underlying metal.
