In daily life, we often see products made of stainless steel, so what is stainless steel? What’s inside the stainless steel? This article will introduce in detail the characteristics, type, grades, chemical composition, property and application, material specifications and other information about stainless steel.
Stainless steel, also known as stainless acid-resistant steel, is a ferroalloy material with excellent rust resistance, corrosion resistance and formability. It has a variety of surface treatments, and in the production process, it has good heat treatment performance, good processing performance, high efficiency, and has the best fire resistance among all metal materials. And stainless steel is widely used in the fields of electrical appliances, daily necessities and heavy industry.
1.Excellent corrosion resistance and rust resistance in various corrosive media
2.The surface is smooth, bright, bright and beautiful, easy to clean
3.Good wear resistance, heat resistance, oxidation resistance and welding performance
4.Easy plastic processing, good polishing
5.Anti-fatigue, high strength, high toughness
6.Good durability and long service life
7.High temperature and low temperature resistance
8.Excellent thermal expansion performance and thermal insulation performance
