Under what conditions is stainless steel prone to rust?

Although stainless steel is said to be non-rust, it is only relatively non-rust. It can only be long-lasting and non-rust when used carefully and carefully. So under what circumstances is stainless steel easy to rust? Let Entrepreneur Stainless tell you!

If the environment is relatively humid, some metal powder is attached to the surface of the stainless steel, and the humidity is relatively high, in this case, it is easy to rust; or some vegetables and fruit juices will corrode the surface of the stainless steel because of the acidity; in addition, when decorating If stainless steel is accidentally stained with building materials such as acid, alkali or salt, it will also corrode; in addition, the atmosphere contains sulfides, carbon oxides, and nitrogen oxides. In contact with condensed water, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and acetic acid are formed. In this way, chemical corrosion will occur, so stainless steel will be inevitable, and it is strange that it does not rust. Having said so many words, the creation of stainless steel should be reminded: stainless steel needs to be cleaned frequently, and it will not rust if it is kept dry. If you are a seaside owner, you should choose 316 stainless steel. Although it is a bit more expensive, don’t hesitate to spend money. After all, this material of stainless steel can resist the corrosion of seawater. It will be corroded in a short time, and it will be bad if you are greedy for a while, and then you will be deeply sad at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.


It is worth mentioning that if you want to use stainless steel tableware, you must use nationally recognized 304 stainless steel. Generally, food-grade stainless steel will be marked on the top of the stainless steel, which is very easy to identify. Especially for high-temperature stainless steel as food containers, we must use regular food-grade 304 stainless steel, because some stainless steels will release some metal molecules at high temperatures, which will seriously affect our health.
