By definition, stainless steel is a metal alloy containing at least 10.5% chromium by mass. In a process known as passivation, the chromium within the metal forms a very thin layer of chromium oxide when exposed to the oxygen in our atmosphere. This layer continually protects the metal beneath and spontaneously regenerates if the surface is scratched — which is why stainless steel enclosures provide excellent corrosion resistance without… Read More …
