Stainless steel contains at least 10.5% chromium, forming an alloy that prevents corrosion with a chromium oxide film. While this film is very thin (not visible), it allows the steel to maintain its bright and smooth surface.
Stainless steel comes in five different types representing different alloys and strengths necessary for end use. For example, the 300 series is typically used by the food-safe applications made up of a chromium-nickel alloy. The 400 series of stainless steel is typically used in architectural applications and building components.
