Why Polished Stainless Steel instead of Stainless Steel?

an alloy of iron with carbon. Stainless steels contain between 10.5%-11% chromium and trace amounts or other alloying alloys that enhance corrosion resistance, strength, etc. Due to the presence of chromium, stainless steels are more resistant to corrosion than steel alone. They can also be polished to enhance their strength and aesthetic appeal.

Many industries utilize stainless steel. These include architecture, design and ornamentation.

Common Stainless steel Alloys

It is not a one-form material. Stainless steel can be manufactured in a number of different compositions. Among the most common alloys of stainless steel we use are:


This austenitic material contains 18% Chromium and 8 % Nickel. It is widely used due to its corrosion resistance, excellent forming properties, and high strength. 304L offers better corrosion resistance and welding than the standard version.

There are many uses for 304 polished stainless steel, including: elevators; appliances; sculptures; general sheet metal fabrications and furniture.


This austenitic aluminum alloy contains 16% Chromium, 10% Nickel, and 2% Molybdenum. The higher nickel and molybdenum content make it more corrosion resistant than the 304. It's commonly used when contact with brine or seawater is expected. The 316L version is a lower carbon alloy that offers better corrosion resistance without requiring post-welding heat treatment.

In addition to the above uses, 316 stainless steel is commonly used for exteriors in marine environments, marine hardware, pharmaceutical industry, and marine hardware.


This ferritic alloy contains 16% Chromium and no Nickel. It has low corrosion resistance compared to the 300 series and is very magnetic. It can only be welded and has limited forming properties. Heat treatment is not possible.

The most common uses of polished 430 Stainless Steel are similar to those for 304 Stainless Steel, however this alloy has a cheaper price while offering less corrosion protection.


This ferritic alloy contains 18% chromium. It has corrosion resistance similar in comparison to stainless steel 304. It has excellent weldability thanks to titanium and the niobium stabilization.

Some of the popular uses for stainless steel 441 are in appliances, kitchen and food equipment, heat exchanging devices, and structural projects.


Alloys made of Duplex stainless are a combination of ferrite and austin. Duplex alloys exhibit greater strength, better stress corrosion resistance and greater toughness compared to ferritic alloys at low temperatures. The composition and, specifically, the amount of nitrogen, chromium, and molybdenum in duplex alloys determines how resistant they are to corrosion. Duplex alloys are usually divided into 3 sub-classes : Lean Duplex, Standard Duplex, and Superduplex.
