Self-structured and contain the needed amount of ≥ % 10,5 chrome and ≤ 1,2 carbon for warrant a surface course which provides corrosion resistance.
Stainless steels are the most used and preferred steel type in modern-days steel industry. It has variations of steel quality and standards. Usually they contain %10 to %25 Cr (chrome). Chrome composes a chromium oxide layer by rising to steel’s surface and prevent iron oxidation. This does not cause any bad effects in mechanical properties because chromium oxide layer composes as a thin film. Also, Ni (nickel) is used as an alloying element. Nickel upgrades the rustproof property and provides a good corrosion resistance. Stainless steels are used in almost every branch of industry.
