Stainless steel is everywhere. It is used to make sinks, faucets and has recently become a popular surface material for appliances in homes all across Texas. Stainless steel is a steel alloy that contains chromium.

304 Stainless Steel
It is a nonmagnetic steel which cannot be hardened by heat treatment. This stainless alloy resists most oxidizing acids and can withstand all ordinary rusting. It is immune to foodstuffs, sterilizing solutions, most of the organic chemicals and dyestuffs, and a wide variety of inorganic chemicals. Type 304, or one of its modifications, is the material specified more than 50% of the time whenever a stainless steel is used.
316 Stainless Steel
It is a nonmagnetic steel designed for severe environments. Some industrial processes require a higher level of resistance to corrosion, for these applications, Type 316 is the answer. A Molybdenum increases the corrosion resistance of this chromium- nickel alloy to withstand attack by many industrial chemicals and solvents. It is the preferred steel for use in marine environments because of its greater resistance to pitting corrosion than other grades of steel.
400 Stainless Steel
This is one of the most economical chromium ferritic stainless steels. It has corrosion and oxidation resistance with good fabricating characteristics. This Stainless Steel contains no titanium. Typical applications include heat exchangers, display racks, gas range burner rings, office furniture and other uses where corrosion resistance at minimum cost is important.
17/4 Stainless Steel
This Stainless Steel provides an outstanding combination of high strength, good corrosion resistance, good mechanical properties and has good toughness in both base metal and welds. This alloy is widely used in the aerospace, chemical, petrochemical, food processing, paper and general metalworking industries.
