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.
: 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.
