Stainless steel combines the strength and durability of low carbon steels whilst also offering corrosion resistance which makes it an interesting consideration of material in comparison to mild steel and bright steel. Stainless steel is used in a variety of household objects and cooking utensils but it also has a vast application in the construction world. Stainless steel does not corrode, rust or stain with water making it an ideal material for use in outdoor projects or structures. It is an ideal material to use in construction where the properties of steel are required in combination with this corrosion resistance. This is achieved due to the chromium content of the stainless steel; which forms a layer of chromium oxide, protecting the steel from oxidisation.
