Stainless steels are steel alloys, also known as inox, containing a minimum of 11% Chrome and a maximum of 1.2% Carbon.
Stainless steels are steels with high corrosion resistance due to their high chromium content. The addition of molybdenum increases corrosion resistance in reducing acids and against pit attacks in chloride solutions. Therefore, there are a large number of stainless steel grades with chromium and molybdenum content, which vary in accordance with the environment in which the alloy should withstand.
Corrosion and stain resistance, low maintenance and brightness make stainless steel an ideal material for many applications where both steel strength and corrosion resistance are required.
Stainless steel is used in plates, plates, rods, wires and pipes to be used in the production of: Pots, cutlery, surgical instruments, white goods; construction materials; industrial equipment (for example, in paper mills, chemical plants, water treatment); storage tanks and tankers for food products. Corrosion resistance, ease of steam cleaning and sterilization and no need for surface coatings have increased the use of stainless steel in commercial kitchens and food processing plants.
