Stainless Steel Name Plates
Versatility, durability, and corrosion resistance are qualities that set apart stainless steel from other metal plates. Stainless steel is an alloy that is composed primarily of low carbon steel and chromium. Other elements such as molybdenum, nickel, and titanium are also used to improve its overall quality. While chromium is what makes stainless steel appear to be “stainless”, the other additional elements help make it more malleable, durable, and reworkable. This type of steel is also found used in kitchen utensils, pots and pans, and even jewelry.
Stainless steel has 3 main classifications – austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic. Austenitic stainless steel carries 200 and 300 series numbers while ferritic and martensitic classes belong in the 400 series. The best is 304 series, which is the most common stainless steel grade and has a composition of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. 316 series stainless steel, which includes additional molybdenum that helps raise its resistance to more types of corrosion.
