The generic term “Stainless Steel” covers a large group of iron-base alloys that contain chromium. The term “stainless” implies a resistance to staining or rusting in air. Stainless steels contain at least 10.5% chromium, which promotes formation of a thin, chromium-enriched surface oxide. Without this minimum amount of chromium, iron-base alloys or steels corrode in moist air, forming the familiar red rust. While chromium content determines whether or not a steel is "stainless," molybdenum improves the corrosion resistance of all stainless steels.
