Stainless steel is an alloy of iron with a chromium content of at least 10.5%. Chromium produces a thin oxide layer on the surface of the steel called the "passivation layer". This prevents further corrosion of the surface. Increasing the amount of chromium can increase corrosion resistance.

Stainless steel also contains varying amounts of carbon, silicon and manganese. Other elements such as nickel and molybdenum can be added to impart other useful properties, such as enhanced formability and increased corrosion resistance.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel is remarkable and is widely used in many other applications between food processing and tableware. Stainless steel is not as easily corroded, rusted, or stained by water as ordinary steel. However, in environments with low oxygen, high salinity, or poor air circulation, it is not completely antifouling.

Stainless steel's corrosion and contamination resistance, low maintenance and familiar gloss make it an ideal material for many applications. The alloy is milled into cookware, tableware, household hardware, surgical instruments, main appliances, coils, sheets, plates, bars, wires and tubes used in industrial equipment, as well as automotive and aerospace structural alloys and building materials for large buildings Things. Storage tanks and tankers used to transport orange juice and other foods are often made of stainless steel due to their corrosion resistance. Because it can be steam cleaned and disinfected, no paint or other surface treatment is required, which is one of the reasons why it can be used in commercial kitchens and food processing plants.
