Where Can Stainless Steel Generally Be Found?

Stainless steel is a form of steel containing chromium. It’s used commonly throughout the home as it’s resistant to tarnishing and rust.

It’s thought that stainless steel was first discovered in 1913 in Sheffield by a scientist experimenting with steel for weapons.

Stainless steel of all varieties is found in thousands of everyday items. In the home you will find it in cutlery, sinks, pots and pans and in washing machine drums. In the medical industry stainless steel is found in surgical instruments and MRI scanners while in the transportation industry car trim and grilles and exhaust systems all contain stainless steel.

Other industries likely to find copious amounts of stainless steel present include civil engineering, hospitality and pharmaceutical sectors.
