The structural components of stainless steel
The corrosion resistance of stainless steel decreases with the increase of carbon content, so most of the carbon content of stainless steel are lower, the maximum does not exceed 1.2%, some steel ωc (carbon content) or even less than 0.03% (such as 00Cr12 ). The main alloying element in stainless steel is Cr (chromium), only when the Cr content reaches a certain value, the steel has corrosion resistance. Therefore, stainless steel generally Cr (chromium) content of at least 10.5%. Stainless steel also contains Ni, Ti, Mn, N, Nb, Mo, Si, Cu and other elements.
