Dose corrosion can occur in stainless steel using?

Considerations of daily stainless steel using

The answer is absolutely YES. Stainless steel is possibly corroded.


Normally, stainless steel does not corrode as do ordinary carbon and alloy steels. However, with some chemicals, especially acids, many kinds of acids. the passive layer may be attacked depending on concentration. And temperature and the metal loss is distributed over the entire surface of the steel.

Hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid at some concentrations are particular aggressive towards stainless steel.

For some occasions, if there are some areas broken in the surface of stainless steel protect layer. the corrosion will occur here. Thus, in order to keep stainless steel products a long-time longevity, it is better to keep surface from chemicals or other things that will Causing a destruction.
