What are chemical properties of stainless steel?
Pure iron (Fe), mixed with carbon to produce 'steel', Chromium is added to steel to make it resistant to rust. copper, Titanium annd vanadium are the alloys which make it more suitable for specific uses,
Iron, Chromium, Nickel, Steel, Nitrogen, and Molybdenum Iron is the main element of stainless steel, Chromium is a metal that stalls the oxidization of iron. Nickel increases the corrosive resistance further and can protect stainless steel from rough usage and harsh environmental conditions. Pitting or scarring is avoided by adding molybdenum to steel.
whichever substance that neutralises or reacts with chromic oxide will corrode stainless steel. search for chemical properties of chromic oxide. stainless steel is considered as a "corrosion resistant alloy" that means that is more resistant than the common steel to corrosion. a typical corrosion reaction is when stainless steel is incontact with fluid that contains chlorides, like seawater, and small pit are produced.
