Learn About Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has been around for many years. Harry Brearley of England is credited as being the inventor of stainless steel in 1912 when he was working on an erosion-resistant alloy for gun barrels. Today, stainless steel is a vital part of our modern world.

Stainless steel is a metal composed of iron alloy and a minimum of 10.5% of chromium. The chromium makes the metal resistant to staining, corroding, and oxidation. Stainless steel comes in many grades that determine the application of the metal. This is a relatively hard, durable, and affordable metal, which typically comes in light gray.
