Corrosion-resistant steel or stainless steel is a high-alloy steel containing mainly iron, chrome, nickel and carbon. The principle alloy elements are chrome and nickel, which give the steel excellent corrosion resistance. When the chrome is exposed to oxygen it forms an invisible layer of chrome oxide, an oxide skin, which protects the underlying metal against further oxidation (rusting).
By adding other elements such as nickel or molybdenum the steel gains strength and corrosion resistance.
Stainless steel is used mostly in the food industry and petro-chemical industy. In addition, stainless steel's sleek finish is admired by interior and exterior designers.
