Stainless steel is a widely used metal due to its strength, resistance to corrosion, and machinability. A minimum of 11% chromium content distinguishes stainless steels, which also include ferritic, duplex, austenitic, and martensitic microstructures. Because stainless steel sheet can have a wide range of mechanical properties based on its chemical makeup, microstructure, and processing, it is used in a variety of industries, including the food service and automotive sectors.
