What is stainless steel?
Steel is an alloy metal, made mostly from low carbon iron. In stainless steel, a minimum of 10% chromium is included in the alloy which allows a coating to form on the surface. This coating makes the product ideal for kitchen, medical, and architectural application. Other components such as nickel may be added to change or enhance the properties of the metal.
These different additions are referred to as “grades” and will be suited to specific applications based on the properties they provide.
