In technical terms, it is also known by the name of inox or inoxsteel. It is an alloy of steel, with a minimum of 10.7% of chromiumcontent . It does not quickly disintegrate, corrode or tintwhen it comes in contact with water, which is the case withordinary steel. Though it is called "Stainless", h…owever, it is not100% stain proof.

While stainless steel is an alloy of steel, the primary difference between stainless steel and other steels is that the stainless steels have a high percentage (about 10% or even more) of the element chromium in them.
It depends on the type of stainless steel you are referring to. Austenite and ferritic stainless is not heat treatable in which case carbon steel could be made far harder. However..martensitic stainless steels are heat treatable in which case they could be made harder depending on the alloy contents…. Generally the more carbon a steel contains, the harder it can be made. Chromium; a key ingrediant in stainless steels, can also increase hardenability. (MORE)
Any of various alloys of iron that contain chromium, nickel, and small amounts of carbon. They may also contain minor amounts of other elements, such as molybdenum. Stainless steel is resistant to rusting and corrosion. I got this information of one of the websites in the related links. http://www….thefreedictionary.com/stainless+steel (MORE)
Stainless steel is the term used to describean extremely versatile family of engineering materials, which areselected primarily for their corrosion and heat resistantproperties. All stainless steels contain principally iron and aminimum of 10.5% chromium. At this level, chromium reacts withoxygen an…d moisture in the environment to form a protective,adherent and coherent, oxide film that envelops the entire surfaceof the material. This oxide film (known as the passive or boundarylayer) is very thin (2-3 namometres). [1nanometre = 10-9 m]. Thepassive layer on stainless steels exhibits a truly remarkableproperty: when damaged (e.g. abraded), it self-repairs as chromiumin the steel reacts rapidly with oxygen and moisture in theenvironment to reform the oxide layer. Increasing the chromiumcontent beyond the minimum of 10.5% confers still greater corrosionresistance. Corrosion resistance may be further improved, and awide range of properties provided, by the addition of 8% or morenickel. The addition of molybdenum further increases corrosionresistance (in particular, resistance to pitting corrosion), whilenitrogen increases mechanical strength and enhances resistance topitting. Corrosion is the gradual degradation of ametal by a chemical, often electrochemical, reaction with thesurrounding environment. It impacts material properties such asmechanical strength, appearance, and impermeability to liquids andgases. Although stainless steels are often chosen because of theirresistance to corrosion, they are not immune to it. Whether astainless steel is corrosion resistant in a specific environmentdepends on a combination of its chemical composition and theaggressiveness of the environment. Stainless steels are often selected for theircorrosion resistance, but they are often also constructionmaterials. Mechanical properties such as strength, high-temperaturestrength, ductility, and toughness are therefore also importantconsiderations. The toughness of the different types ofstainless steels shows considerable variation, ranging fromexcellent toughness at all temperatures for the austenitic steelsto the relatively brittle behavior of the martensitic steels.

Stainless steel in metallurgical definition is a steel that contains ~14% or more Chromium. Other alloying elements such as Nickel can also improve steel's stain resistance properties. The amount of free Chromium, i.e. not tied up in carbides determines steel's stain resistance ability. Higher carb…on content leaves less free Chromium in the alloy, which explains why some of the high end stainless steels with more % of Chromium are less stain resistant than lower grade stainless steels with less Chromium and Carbon. However, given time and conditions all steels will rust. For more information on alloying elements effects on the steel see the related links. (MORE)
All stainless steel has at least 10.5% Chromium in it. Chromium is what makes the steel stainless. The other elements in stainless steel can be nickel, nitrogen, molybdenum. You can find more information here: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-stainless-steel.htm It is the incorporation of a good bi…t of chromium that makes steel into stainless steel. The presence of chromium in steel alloys allows them to resist chemical attack better than "regular" steels. Stainless steel contains chromium. The chromium forms a protective oxide layer on the metal surface. Even when scratched or cut, a new chromium oxide layer will form in stainless steel. (MORE)
nothning really its just brushed Well I think it is the Finish that you get on the surface.The brush line finish....
A steel is considered to be stainless if it contains a minimal of 13% chromium.
There are many different kinds of stainless steel, but the most common alloying elements in it are chromium and nickel.
Stainless steel has aluminium oxide added during the melting process and is the 3rd most abundant mineral/alloy fount in the earths crust, this is one of the lightest alloys. carbon steel is iron that's smelted with a form of carbon, ( animal dung can be used) this fuses the carbon to the iron and m…akes it very brittle but also very Strong.

In general, magnets will stick to steel. There are many stainless alloy steels that are non-magnetic, however. Most stainless steels have a metallic crystal structure that gives them few or no magnetic properties.
Yep, you can weld steel to stainless and you can weld stainless to steel. You can use steel or stainless welding rod in either case but the steel or steel welding rod will of course rust.
Stainless steal is a mixture of carbon (2%) atoms and chromium (13%) and steel (85%). Stainless steal is more brittle than other metals because of the high carbon content. Chromium helps protect the steel from rust.
It heavily depends on which type of stainless steel you're referring to and what your definition of strong is. High carbon and perhaps plain carbon steels would be harder then austenite and ferritic stainless, but martensitic stainless would be harder then plain/high carbon. Austenite and ferritic s…tainless would be tougher and austenite would have have highest degree of corrosion resistance. I consider a steel to be "strong" if it has a balance of hardness and toughness in which case,I would say martensitic stainless steels. (MORE)
Mild steel and stainless steels are used to fabricate various industrial or commercial equipments such as pressure vessels, hand railing etc...
dublex ss has 22% or more but ss has 18%cr or less the main difference is that duplex is a mix of a ferrite / austenite structure approx 50%/50%, and so the name "duplex" while stainless steel has just one structure, for example the 18/10 is an austenitic.
Stainless and galvanised steel are just protected in different ways; any difference in strength depends on the thickness, quality, etc. of the steel itself.
Stainless steel is steel. Assuming that you mean high carbon steel, and martensitic stainless and proper heat treatment, most of the martensitic steels would be harder with some exceptions.
Stainless steel is a steel-chromium alloy that is more resistant to corrosion than carbon-steel or other steel alloys. As with all steel, it strength depends on its grade; but overall the strength difference between carbon steel and stainless steel is negligible.

Depends on the type of stainless you are referring to. Martensitic stainless steels could be made harder then mild.
Carbon steel is an iron alloy with less than 2% carbon, no chromium, and contains copper and magnesium not more than 0.6% Stainless steel is an iron alloy with less than 2% carbon and it contains chromium and it's resistive to corrosion
Stainless steel look products aren't actually made from stainless steel. They look like it but they don't have the same properties as stainless steel and are not rust resistant etc.
Because it stains less easier than regular steel. It's not 'stain proof', it's just more resistant to staining and rusting. Think of it as stain less.
Stainless steel becomes stainless when Chromium is added to steel. This makes it resistant to corrosion.

Steel is mostly iron with a percent or so of carbon . To make stainless steel, we add a bit over 10% (and sometimes up over 20%) chromium , which is the key metal that makes the steel stainless. We'll also generally add some nickel or possibly manganese to make the steel more workable. A lin…k can be found below. (MORE)
The finish. Most people prefer stainless with a high shine (polished) finish. Satin has a dull finish to it (unpolished)
Stainless steel is an Alloy steel because it contains chromium as an alloying element - steels without alloying elements are called carbon steels.
when nickel is added, for instance, the austenite structure of ironis stabilized. This crystal structure makes such steels virtuallynon-magnetic and less brittle at low temperatures. For greaterhardness and strength, more carbon is added.
It depends on the environments. If the two materials will be in contact with water or high humidity then you can have some corrosion on the galvanized steel. Stainless steel and galvanized steel can corrode. However,galvanized steel will corrode at a higher rate. Stainless steel ismore corrosion res…istant than galvanized steel, but in somecircumstances it will also corrode. (MORE)
In mild steel there are negligeble alloying elements which has no effect on physical & chemical properties of MS. On the other hand due to alloying elements [ Ni & Cr ] oxidation is avoided.
The primary characteristics that steel and stainless steel share are that both are steels, and are made of iron with a bit of carbon in them. While stainless steel has about 10% or more of chromium in it, the "steel" part is still essentially the same.
Stainless is classified as any steel that contains a minimal of 13% chromium and is known for its corrosion resistance.
You can TIG weld using a 309L wire.

no Actually, despite the opinion of the previous poster, yes you can! Use a flux suitable for stainless and there should be no problems. I've done it many many times completely without issue.
You can weld stainless steel to stainless steel using various welding methods such as TIG welding and MIG welding. However, it is best to get a professional to do the job. And understand that stainless steel does not weld very successfully under any circumstances - it will almost always, inevitably,… break right next to the weld. (MORE)
Stainless steels are chromium containing steel alloys, the minimum chromium content of the standardised stainless steels is 10.5%. The better corrosion resistance is due to a chromium oxide film that is formed on the steel surface. This extremely thin layer, under the right conditions, is also self-…repairing. Besides chromium, typical alloying elements are molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen, Nickel is mostly alloyed to improve the formability and ductility of stainless steel (MORE)
Depend on application. Forged steel is harder and is used among others for for railroad wheels. Stainless steel is corrosion resistant and is used for surgical tools, or cutlery when you don't ant to the utensils to rust
Here is the list of stainless steel seamless manufacturers, whereyou can buy stainless steel at reasonable price -http://in.kompass.com/a/pipes-and-tubes-stainless-steel-seamless/2702047/
Sure , that's why stainless is marked, usually from 18/6 to 18/10. The higher the number , the more rust-resistant the steel. Surgical instuments are 18/10 steel-nickel alloy, for tensile strength and rust-resistance.18/6 will rust if left in standing water.
There are many different types of stainless steel..440c,ATs34, 303, etc..so it heavily depends on what type you're referring to. Ferritic stainless steels would be the ones that have the best machining characteristics but is not heat treatable.
Well the higher the level of the stainless the Less likely it is to rust. 340 grade contains more nickel
To glue 2 pieces of stainless steel first degrease them totally to make certain the surfaces will hold glue. The best glues for this are J B Weld, Araldite and LePage Extreme.
Yes, the former British Steel had two stainless steel production plants one in Sheffield and one in South Wales.
Well, all steels are pretty much the same weight, but vary a bit depending on the composition. In general carbon steels have a density of 7.87 g/cc, while 300 series (austenitic) stainless steels are a little heavier, 8.03 g/cc. On the other hand martensitic stainless steels (400 series) are little …lighter (7.80 g/cc) (MORE)
It depends on the type of stainless steel. Stainless steels come in various compositions and are identified by numbers and letters. Electrodes should be chosen that match these. For example when welding 316 stainless use type 316 electrodes. In a lot of situations you can safely use the next higher …number. 304 stainless can be welded with 308 electrodes, 308 stainless with 310 electrodes. 309 electrodes are generally used to weld stainless to carbon steel.
