General information about stainless steel

Standard EN 10 020

According to the European standard EN 10 020, steel is an iron-carbon alloy with a carbon content of no more than 2%. Materials with a higher carbon content are referred to as cast iron. If you refer to the table below, you can see more precise parameters.

Cast Iron Carbon steel Special steel Stainless steel
Fe + C > 2% Fe + C <2% Fe + C <2% + (Cr, Ni, Mo, etc.,)>5% Fe + C<1.2% + Cr>10.5%

All stainless steels contain at least 10.5% Cr. There are other alloying elements such as vanadium, molybdenum, titanium, nickel, niobium, etc., which are also important to steel properties. Depending on the composition, all grades have certain mechanical properties and temperature limits of application. Among its main advantages are exceptional corrosion resistance, strength, accessibility to cold forming and high quality of welded joints. Only with the right type of steel, a long service life of the component or structure is guaranteed. The product range is very diverse, with equal success using a circle, sheet tube, profile.

Application of

Due to the high technological characteristics, stainless steel rolled steel is increasingly used today both in industrial sectors and in households. It is able to be exposed to aggressive environment and high temperature for a long time without destroying or deforming. Jet technology would not be possible without special stainless steel alloys. Transport engineering is based on the use of high-strength iron, titanium, chrome-nickel and other alloys. Unique performance characteristics provide an opportunity to use heat-resistant steels for production of heat-exchange equipment, heat shields, parts of thermal furnaces and combustion chambers. High chemical resistance is important in industrial chemistry.
