Corrosion Resistance

Stainless covers four groups - austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and duplex/super duplex. All are produced in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Even stainless can suffer from the effects of corrosion at times, but as long as the passive surface layer is maintained, rusting, and other forms such as pitting, crevice, galvanic, intergranular and stress corrosion are avoided.
