Stainless Steel is a metal that has a higher resistance to corrosion and oxidation than steel. To be considered stainless steel it must contain a minimum of 10.5% chromium. Other elements, such as: nickel, molybdenum and niobium, are often used to change the chemistry of the steel for a particular application. When chromium is added to steel and combined with oxygen; a thin, few atoms thick, invincible layer is formed that protects the steel underneath; this process also gives unique self healing abilities to the metal. Stainless Steel is used in a wide range of applications from industrial to cutlery to decorative.
