These Frequently Asked Questions are non-authoritative and meant to clarify those requirements.
Why is Stainless Steel called "Stainless"?
Stainless steel is virtually rust-proof, making it "stainless." A protective coating of chromium atoms binds with oxygen atoms to form a stable layer only a few atoms thick. This layer catches oxygen atoms which would otherwise bond to the iron in steel, causing rust.
What are the different types of Stainless Steel?
There are three main types of stainless steel - austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic. These types are defined by their microstructure and crystal phase, and their characteristics make them useful for very different purposes.
Is stainless steel magnetic?
There are several "types" of stainless steel. The 300 series (which contains nickel) is NOT magnetic. The 400 series (which just contains chromium and no nickel) ARE magnetic.
Can I use stainless steel at low temperatures?
Austenitic stainless steels are extensively used for service down to as low as liquid helium temperature (-269 deg C). This is largely due to the lack of a clearly defined transition from ductile to brittle fracture in impact toughness testing.
What is the difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel?
304 contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. 316 contains 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum. The "moly" is added to help resist corrosion to chlorides (like sea water and de-icing salts.
What is stainless steel used for?
Stainless steels of various kinds are used in thousands of applications. The following gives a flavour of the full range: 1. Domestic 2. Architectural/Civil Engineering 3. Transport 4. Chemical/Pharmaceutical 5. Oil and Gas 6. Medical 7. Food and Drink 8. Water
