What Makes Stainless Steel Stainless?

Stainless steel contains iron, chromium, manganese, silicon, carbon and, in many cases, significant amounts of nickel and molybdenum. These elements react with oxygen from water and air to form a very thin, stable film of oxide.The presence of the stable film prevents additional corrosion by acting as a barrier that limits oxygen and water access to the underlying metal surface. If the metal is cut or scratched and the film is disrupted, more oxide will quickly form and recover the exposed surface, protecting it from oxidative corrosion.
