All metals react with oxygen in the atmosphere to form an oxide film on the surface. Unfortunately, the iron oxide formed on the ordinary carbon steel continues to oxidize, making the corrosion expanding and eventually forming holes. Electroplating can be used to ensure the surface of carbon steel by using paint or oxidation resistant metals (such as zinc, nickel, and chromium).

But, as it is known, this protection is only a kind of film. If the protective layer is damaged, the following steel will start to rust, such as air, steam, water and other weak corrosive media and acid, alkali, salt and other chemical etching medium corrosion steel. Also known as rust resistant acid steel. E-BON the stainless steel specialist, Moscow mule mug supplier china.

In practical applications, the steel that corroded the weak corrosion medium is often called stainless steel, and the steel which is resistant to chemical medium is called acid resistant steel. Because of the difference in chemical composition, the former is not corroded by chemical medium, and the latter is generally rusty.
The corrosion resistance of stainless steel 2 depends on the alloy elements contained in the steel. Chromium is the basic element to obtain corrosion resistance of stainless steel. When the chromium content in steel reaches 12%, chromium will react with oxygen in corrosive medium to form a thin oxide film on the surface of steel, which can prevent further corrosion of steel matrix.

In addition to chromium, the commonly used alloy elements are nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium, copper, nitrogen, etc. to meet the requirements of various uses on the microstructure and properties of stainless steel.
