Introduction to Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is defined today as a steel alloy containing at least 10% chromium, plus other elements — especially nickel. Generally speaking, stainless steel may be subdivided into four basic families; Austenitic, Ferritic, Martensitic, and Percipitation Hardening.
