This metal is highly resistant to staining, rusting, and corrosion. It is also very versatile, with over 150 grades in production. Stainless is widely used across aerospace, automotive, and construction industries as well as most industries requiring highly sterilized finishes.
These alloys are used in many industries, especially chemical processing. They can be exposed to many corrosive elements in oil and gas environments. These alloys are highly resistant to pitting (or crevice) corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, and sulfide stress cracking.
These products are primarily steel combined with other elements to improve such properties as machinability, corrosion resistance, hardness, and strength. They are commonly used in motors, engines, and spacecraft because of their ferromagnetic properties.
