About Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the most common stainless steel. The steel contains both chromium (between 18% and 20%) and nickel (between 8% and 10.5%) metals as the main non-iron constituents

It is an austenitic stainless steel. It is less electrically and thermally conductive than carbon steel. It is magnetic, but less magnetic than steel.

It has a higher corrosion resistance than regular steel and is widely used because of the ease in which it is formed into various shapes.
