Stainless steel has the ability to resist atmospheric oxidation --- that is, stainless steel, but also in the acid, alkali, salt medium is the ability to corrosion - that is, corrosion resistance. But its corrosion resistance is the size of its steel chemical composition itself, plus the state of each state, the use of conditions and changes in the type of environmental media. Such as 304 stainless steel mesh, in the dry and clean atmosphere, there is absolutely excellent anti-corrosion ability, but it moved to the coastal area, in a large amount of salt containing sea fog, will soon rust; and 316 steel pipe good performance. Therefore, not any kind of stainless steel, corrosion resistance in any environment can not rust.

Stainless steel is the surface of the formation of a thin layer of thin and strong and stable stable chromium oxide film (protective film), to prevent the continued infiltration of oxygen atoms, continue to oxidize, and the ability to obtain corrosion resistance. Once for some reason, the film has been constantly destroyed, the air or liquid oxygen atoms will continue to infiltrate or metal iron atoms continue to precipitate out to form loose iron oxide, metal surface will continue to rust. This surface film is damaged in the form of many, more common in daily life are the following:

1. The surface of the stainless steel is stored with dust or heterogeneous metal particles containing other metal elements. In the humid air, the condensed water between the attached material and the stainless steel is connected into a micro-cell, causing an electrochemical reaction , The protective film is damaged, called electrochemical corrosion.

2. Stainless steel surface adhesion of organic juice (such as melons, soup, sputum, etc.), in the case of water and oxygen, constitute organic acids, long time the organic acid corrosion of metal surface.

3. Stainless steel surface adhesion contains acid, alkali, salt substances (such as decorative walls of alkaline water, lime water splash), causing local corrosion.

4. In contaminated air (such as containing a large amount of sulfide, carbon oxides, nitrogen oxide atmosphere), in case of condensate, the formation of sulfuric acid, nitric acid, acetic acid liquid point, causing chemical corrosion.

The above can cause damage to the surface of the stainless steel protective film caused by corrosion. So, to ensure that the metal surface is permanently bright, not rusted advice:

1. Always clean the surface of the decorative stainless steel scrub, remove the attached material, to eliminate the external factors that lead to modification.

2. Waterfront area to use 316 stainless steel, 316 material can resist seawater corrosion.

3. Some chemical composition of the stainless steel pipe on the market can not meet the corresponding national standards, up to 304 material requirements. So it will cause rust, which requires users to seriously choose a reputable manufacturers of products.
