What are the factors influencing the production of Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is possibly the most essential wonder material that has contributed significantly in the enormous rise in urbanisation and industrialization across the world. All massive projects and structures need stainless steel as the fundamental building alloy.

The invention of stainless steel has, no doubt, revolutionized the industrial growth. It has had a remarkable influence on engineering, architecture, electronic and chemical sectors. From a simple safety pin to a 1000 tonne cargo-ship, there is hardly any aspect of our life that does not need stainless steel.

Stainless steel lies at the core of most large projects, especially construction. Some of its major applications are as follows:

Construction of buildings

Trains and stations

Lifts and escalators

Construction of bridges

Chemical tankers

Automobile parts

Shafts and pumps

Stainless Steel is available in different variants depending on what it is being used for. For example, 17-4 PH is the stainless steel of choice for most industries. It is also known as Type 360. This stainless steel is made using a heat treatment process called Precipitation Hardening. This process allows the manipulation of the strength and toughness of the final product, as per specific requirements.  

This stainless steel has a martensitic structure, which means that it has a comparatively lower Chromium content, around 12%. It can be hardened or tempered as needed. With proper heat treatment, a very high yield can be obtained, up to 160-190 ksi (1100-1300 MPa).
