Type of Tosing Casting Stainless Steel Materials
2016-02-15

Nearly everyone has heard of Stainless Steel Precision Casting or has used it in some way, shape or form throughout their life, but not everyone knows what it is, how it’s made, how it’s used and the advantages of choosing it over other types of materials. There are many unique benefits associated with using stainless steel in a wide variety of projects and applications. Unfortunately, many contractors and designers will overlook these advantages due to the higher cost of stainless steel compared to other materials. However, if you are looking for a material that will increase the life of your project, stainless steel will ultimately be the best value in the long run.

Stainless steel is appropriately named, as it is a type of steel that has a unique ability to resist stains and corrosion. Ten percent or more of stainless steel comes from the addition of chromium, which is what gives the steel its unique properties. The steel that is used to create stainless steel is a low carbon steel.

One of the most unique abilities of stainless steel is its ability to heal itself. The chromium content allows for the formation of an invisible chromium oxide film on the surface of the steel. If the damaged stainless steel is exposed to oxygen – even in small amounts – it will become self-healing, even with mechanical and chemical damage.

When other elements, such as nickel, nitrogen and molybdenum are added during the manufacturing process, these corrosion resistant properties are increased. While there are currently over 60 different grades of stainless steel available to choose from, they all fall neatly into five distinct classes that are identified by the alloy elements that are added to enhance or strengthen their properties.

Grades that have lower alloys will resist corrosion in pure water or atmospheric environments. Grades that have a higher alloy have the ability to resist corrosion in alkaline or acid solutions, as well as chlorine bearing environments, such as processing plants and other industrial facilities.

Stainless steel materials that have a very high level of chromium, as well as grades of stainless steel that contain nickel, have the ability to resist scaling. This high level of nickel alloy can also retain its strength even at very high temperatures. Manganese can also be added in significant quantities to stainless steel compositions for similar results to nickel alloys, but at a much lower cost.

Carbon is added to some types of stainless steel materials to increase hardness and strength. When these materials are subjected to treatment by heat, the steel can be strengthened and honed for use in creating tools, cutlery and razor blades.
