Stainless steels are iron alloys that contain 10.5 percent chromium and can be enhanced with other metals, such as copper, titanium, molybdenum and nickel. Stainless steel can also be improved for various applications by... More »

Steel wool is an alloy of iron (Fe) with carbon (C) rather than a chemical compound, thus it does not have a chemical formula. The steel from which steel wool is made is called low-carbon steel and contains between 0.1 a... More »

Modern stainless steel contains nickel along with other elements, such as molybdenum, niobium and chromium, that help the metal resist corrosion. Nickel is merely one of the key elements that adds to the rust-resistance ... More »

According to U.K. metals stockholder Aalco, stainless steel production includes the alloying of iron with carbon, manganese, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, nitrogen, copper, titanium, phosphorus, sulphur, selenium, niobiu... More »

The alloy known as stainless steel is comprised primarily of iron combined with a minimum of 10.5 percent chromium. Other metals, such as nickel, molybdenum, titanium or copper, are added to the alloy in small amounts to... More »

The difference between chrome and stainless steel is that stainless steel is typically made out of a metal alloy without plating (it does contain either nickel or chromium to make it durable), while chrome is made out of... More »

Stainless steel is an alloy containing at least 11.5 percent chromium and at least 50 percent iron. Additional components are nickel, carbon, manganese, silicon and nitrogen. The amount of each component is varied accord... More »
