Stainless Steel doesn’t corrode or rust in water so it’s perfect for manipulating and turning into project steel. High oxidation-resistance in air at ambient temperature is normally achieved with additions of a minimum of 13 percent chromium, and up to 26 percent is used for harsh environments. The chromium makes a layer that is this and lustrous. Its impervious to water and air, protecting the metal beneath. Also it is resistant to scratches because of passivation.
CoxMHP avoids galling as welded materials may be torn and pitted in projects by using dissimilar materials when the parts are forced together. Stainless steel nuts and bolts can be forced together causing the oxide layer to be scraped off as parts are welded together. Nitonic alloys reduce the tendency to gall through selective alloying with manganese and nitrogen. Lubrication can be additionally used to prevent galling.
Stainless Steel is not a good conductor of electricity. Ferritic stainless steel is magnetic, while austenitic stainless steel is not magnetic. Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance and familiar listre make it an ideal material for many applications. With over 150 grades of stainless steel, 15 are most commonly used. Milled alloy creates coils, sheets, plates, bars, wire and tubing to be used in a multitude of tools and hardware.
Stainless Steel industrial equipment used for automotive, aerospace and other structural alloy and construction material is often created for specific projects. Storage tanks and transport vehicles utilize stainless steel quite often. With a high luster finish it creates a strong finish for any tool or die we’re working on for a project.
CoxMHP uses stainless steel for some of the highest quality products and services we offer.
