: It all depends on the amount of Chrome. Some types of stainless are resistant to pitting corrosion while others are not. Chrome combines with oxygen to create a chromium oxide which prevents corrosion of the steel.
: : steve,
: : Could be ... a stainless steel is one of several
: : alloys that have chrominum added to their crystaline
: : structure during the mill process. Anything added
: : to the steel compound effects it in different ways.
: : Many things effect the steel in ways you would never
: : dream they would. Chorme somehow improves the steel's
: : ability to better inhibit corrosion.
: : As to corrosion resistant steel being the same as
: : stainless, does it contain chrominum? There are many
: : different stainless steels,... some magnetic, some not, ...
: : some even rust.. and some do and others do not weld well.
: : .. some well fracture easy and others have high tensil.
: : An important hint, ... just because a steel is stainless
: : does NOT mean it is stronger, makes a good knife edge, or
: : is a better steel. ... advertisers love to play on the
: : stainless is better hype.
: : Sorry, but it required an explaination.
