Alloys Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the common name for a number of different alloys used in corrosive environments. Stainless is used to keep food surfaces and medical devices safe of microbes as it is self-repairing with its chromium oxide film. Stainless uses chromium as the unifying ingredient, but the addition of additional alloys such as nickel, nitrogen, and molybdenum creates different molecular structures for varying applications.

Short Description

Stainless Steel

“Stainless” steel is not one type of metal and actually refers to a variety of steel types. What most know as stainless steel is made primarily of iron and carbon. What makes stainless steel different from other types of steel is its chromium (Cr) content which is often combined with other alloying elements such as nickel (Ni) to create the corrosion-resistant product used in many manufacturing applications. Stainless steel strip & wire have been the flagship products of Ulbrich’s since 1924, and for nearly a century our engineers have worked closely with our customers to deliver precision in many innovative manufacturing applications.

Ulbrich rolls all five classifications of stainless alloys in multiple product forms for our customers. These classifications include austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, precipitation hardening, and duplex grades.
