Corrosion Resistant Sheet And Plates
Corrosion resistant steels includes the highly popular stainless steel. These steel plates do not undergo corrosion when exposed to wet environments. Non-corrosion resistant steels such as carbon steels rust, when exposed to air and moisture. This, rusting results in an iron oxide surface layer that porous and fragile.
Various elements are alloyed with these corrosion resistant steels that protect them from corrosion. Stainless steel plates contain chromium, which forms a layer of chromium oxide that protects them from damage. The passivation of layer helps in resisting corrosion.
