Right from the utensils we use till creating huge monuments and structures we use this metal. It is a non- corrosive, rust and stain proof metal called stainless steel. This metal is also called steel alloy or inox steel. This metal has various grades and types based on the components combinations used. It has different surface finishes too. These properties and its corrosion resistance is used in many fields namely from aviation industry to normal household matters. As Wikipedia explains, Stainless steel differs from carbon steel by the amount of chromium present. Unprotected carbon steel rusts readily when exposed to air and moisture. This iron oxide film (the rust) is active and accelerates corrosion by forming more iron oxide. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal's internal structure. Though it is not a good conductor of electricity, mixed with few percentage of copper it can be good conductor. Some types of this metal like ferritic and martensitic are magnetic and austentic type is non magnetic.

It is a low maintenance metal and has good sheen which makes it an ideal choice for many appliances included home appliances, cook ware, cutlery, surgical instruments, industrial equipments and many more. Automobile industry too uses steel for making decorative pieces for vehicles, mainly because of its shine. Its corrosion and stain resistance allows it to be used in the moist places or where water is concerned. Not just that, it is also used in making trendy jewellery and watches. As the matter of fact they are more than any other metal. Stainless-steel pipe (In German : Edelstahlrohr ) are used in many areas like food industry, where the edible items are to be carried from one machine to other, because it can be steam cleaned and sterilized. So, this industry can depend well on steel for higher hygiene, which a food production industry stringently adheres to. Due to these properties of steel medical uses of this metal are large. Austentic type is used for creating Stainless-steel pipe (In German : Edelstahlrohr ) for marine industry, due to its higher corrosion resistance. Cookware too is made from it. Other grades like ferritic, martensitic are less expensive but have better engineering properties.

We are surrounded by metals and there are many uses of it in our daily life. But steel is one multipurpose metal which comes handy for every little problem of ours.
