What is Stainless Steel Pipe?

Stainless-Steel-PipesStainless Steel Pipes: Stainless steel is a versatile material comprised of a steel alloy and a small percentage of chromium—the addition of chromium adds to the material’s corrosion resistance, a trait that earned stainless steel its name. Because stainless steel is also low-maintenance, oxidation resistant, and doesn’t affect other metals it comes in contact with, it is frequently used in a large array of applications, especially in piping and tubing manufacturing. Let’s know more about Stainless Steel Pipes. What is Stainless Steel? Stainless steel, also known as inox steel and is an alloy with a minimum of 10.5%chromium content by mass. Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion by blocking oxygen diffusion to the steel surface and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal’s internal structure. Passivation occurs only if the proportion of chromium is high enough and oxygen is present. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required. Read more
