Introduction To The 7 Major Properties Of Stainless Steel

May 24 2023

Stainless steel materials are very common in daily life. Most people perceive it as "corrosion resistance". In addition to corrosion resistance, what other performance characteristics does stainless steel have? Today I will take you to a comprehensive understanding.

Corrosion resistance

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel can be divided into chemical corrosion and electrochemical corrosion. Different types of stainless steel have different types of corrosion resistance. Some are resistant to atmospheric corrosion, some are resistant to seawater, and some are resistant to acid corrosion. In general, among many stainless steels , Austenitic stainless steel has the best corrosion resistance and its widest application range.

Fire and heat resistance

Another significant advantage of stainless steel is heat resistance. It can still maintain excellent physical and mechanical properties at high temperatures. Different types of stainless steel have different resistance to high temperatures. The general high temperature resistance is 525 degrees, and the maximum use temperature of 310S stainless steel has reached 1300 degrees, continuous use temperature is 1150 degrees.

Stain resistance

In the kitchen appliances, stainless steel material occupies a considerable part of the hygienic, non-porous surface, making it widely suitable for high cleanliness use scenes.

Easy to maintain

Stainless steel is a very durable metal. The chromium layer attached to it can prevent oxidation and resist scratches, so it is also widely used in the jewelry industry.

cut costs

Cost saving is also one of the advantages of stainless steel materials. Compared with other materials, stainless steel has a higher density and has a weight advantage. The thickness of the metal material of the same area is thinner, so it can save costs and is a very cost-effective metal material.

Long life

Due to its performance advantages such as wear resistance, oxidation resistance, and scratch resistance, it has a longer service life than similar metal materials, of course, the premise is that it is used in a dry environment.


Different products require different welding techniques. To meet the functional requirements of the product, the raw materials must have good weldability, such as tableware, thermos cups, pots, etc. Stainless steel materials have excellent welding performance and can be processed into various shapes, and suitable stainless steel raw materials can be found for different products.

The above are the performance advantages of stainless steel. Of course, the performance of different types and models of stainless steel will also be different. It must be rationally distinguished and the type selected according to the purpose.
