Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance and familiar lustre make it an ideal material for many applications. There are over 150 grades of stainless steel, of which fifteen are most commonly used. The alloy is milled into coils, sheets, plates, bars, wire, and tubing to be used in cookware, cutlery, household hardware, surgical instruments, major appliances, industrial equipment (for example, in sugar refineries) and as an automotive and aerospace structural alloy and construction material in large buildings. Storage tanks and tankers used to transport orange juice and other food are often made of stainless steel, because of its corrosion resistance. This also influences its use in commercial kitchens and food processing plants, as it can be steam-cleaned and sterilized and does not need paint or other surface finishes.

Stainless steel is used for jewelry and watches with 316L being the type commonly used for such applications. It can be re-finished by any jeweler and will not oxidize or turn black.

Some firearms incorporate stainless steel components as an alternative to blued or parkerized steel. Some handgun models, such as the Smith & Wesson Model 60 and the Colt M1911 pistol, can be made entirely from stainless steel. This gives a high-luster finish similar in appearance to nickel plating. Unlike plating, the finish is not subject to flaking, peeling, wear-off from rubbing (as when repeatedly removed from a holster), or rust when scratched.


Main article: Architectural steel

Stainless steel is used for buildings for both practical and aesthetic reasons. Stainless steel was in vogue during the art deco period. The most famous example of this is the upper portion of the Chrysler Building (pictured). Some diners and fast-food restaurants use large ornamental panels and stainless fixtures and furniture. Because of the durability of the material, many of these buildings retain their original appearance.

Type 316 stainless is used on the exterior of both the Petronas Twin Towers and the Jin Mao Building, two of the world's tallest skyscrapers.[17]

The Parliament House of Australia in Canberra has a stainless steel flagpole weighing over 220 tonnes (240 short tons).

The aeration building in the Edmonton Composting Facility, the size of 14 hockey rinks, is the largest stainless steel building in North America.


  • Cala Galdana Bridge in Minorca (Spain) was the first stainless steel road bridge.

  • Sant Fruitos Pedestrian Bridge (Catalonia, Spain), arch pedestrian bridge.

  • Padre Arrupe Bridge (Bilbao, Spain) links the Guggenheim museum to the University of Deusto.[18]

Monuments and sculptures[edit]

  • The Unisphere, constructed as the theme symbol of the 1964-5 World's Fair in New York City, is constructed of Type 304L stainless steel as a sphere with a diameter of 120 feet, or 36.57 meters.

  • The Gateway Arch (pictured) is clad entirely in stainless steel: 886 tons (804 metric tonnes) of 0.25 in (6.4 mm) plate, #3 finish, type 304 stainless steel.[19]

  • The United States Air Force Memorial has an austenitic stainless steel structural skin.

  • The Atomium in Brussels, Belgium was renovated with stainless-steel cladding in a renovation completed in 2006; previously the spheres and tubes of the structure were clad in aluminium.

  • The Cloud Gate sculpture by Anish Kapoor, in Chicago US.

  • The Sibelius monument in Helsinki, Finland, is made entirely of stainless steel tubes.

  • The Man of Steel (sculpture) under construction in Rotherham, England.


Automotive bodies

The Allegheny Ludlum Corporation worked with Ford on various concept cars with stainless steel bodies from the 1930s through the 1970s, as demonstrations of the material's potential. The 1957 and 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham had a stainless steel roof. In 1981 and 1982, the DeLorean DMC-12 production automobile used stainless steel body panels over a glass-reinforced plasticmonocoque. Intercity buses made by Motor Coach Industries are partially made of stainless steel. The aft body panel of the Porsche Cayman model (2-door coupe hatchback) is made of stainless steel. It was discovered during early body prototyping that conventional steel could not be formed without cracking (due to the many curves and angles in that automobile). Thus, Porsche was forced to use stainless steel on the Cayman.

Passenger rail cars

Rail cars have commonly been manufactured using corrugated stainless steel panels (for additional structural strength). This was particularly popular during the 1960s and 1970s, but has since declined. One notable example was the early Pioneer Zephyr. Notable former manufacturers of stainless steel rolling stock included the Budd Company (USA), which has been licensed to Japan's Tokyu Car Corporation, and the Portuguese company Sorefame. Many railcars in the United States are still manufactured with stainless steel, unlike other countries who have shifted away.


Budd also built an airplane, the Budd BB-1 Pioneer, of stainless steel tube and sheet, which is on display at the Franklin Institute.

The American Fleetwings Sea Birdamphibious aircraft of 1936 was also built using a spot-welded stainless steel hull.

The Bristol Aeroplane Company built the all-stainless steel Bristol 188 high-speed research aircraft, which first flew in 1963.

The use of stainless steel in mainstream aircraft is hindered by its excessive weight compared to other materials, such as aluminum.


Valadium, a stainless steel and 12% nickel alloy is used to make class and military rings. Valadium is usually silver-toned, but can be electro-charged to give it a gold tone. The gold tone variety is known as Sun-lite Valadium

Q:How much more expensive is 304 stainless steel than 201?
201 in the stainless steel industry, represents a kind of material, 201 stainless steel is generally refers to 201 stainless steel and acid resistant steel floorboard. 201 stainless steel refers to the atmosphere, steam, water and other weak medium corrosion of steel, while acid resistant steel refers to acid, alkali, salt and other chemical corrosive medium corrosion of steel.
Q:Under what circumstances can the stainless steel pipe be welded by argon arc, and under what conditions can the arc welding be used?
From the economic point of view and flexibility, arc welding is good, from the efficiency aspect, of course, argon arc welding is higher, the effect is better, and also more mechanized. If it is small batch, it will choose arc welding.
Q:Ask experts, 304 stainless steel pipe why rust?
304 stainless steel is a common stainless steel material, the density of 7.93 g/cm3, the industry is also called 18/8 stainless steel. High temperature resistance of 800 degrees, with good processability, high toughness characteristics, widely used in industry and furniture decoration industry and food and medical industry.The common marking methods in the market are 06Cr19Ni10, SUS304, in which 06Cr19Ni10 is generally used to indicate standard production of the national standard. Generally speaking, ASTM standard production is indicated, and SUS 304 represents standard production.304 is a versatile stainless steel which is widely used in the manufacture of equipment and parts requiring good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability). In order to maintain the inherent corrosion resistance of stainless steel, steel must contain more than 18% chromium, more than 8% of the nickel content. 304 stainless steel is a brand of stainless steel produced according to the ASTM standard in the United states.
Q:Why can't stainless steel tubes be cut with acetylene?
Is mainly from Huoxian, heating flame is mainly open before cutting and cutting plate preheating on the auxiliary heating.Stainless steel, chromium containing at least 13% or more, it hinders the exothermic oxidation and melting phenomenon, which is higher than that of iron chromium to 316 degrees, 1855 degrees, so can not use stainless steel oxygen - acetylene flame cutting.
