The Difference Between Carbon Steel And Stainless Steel
Feb 08, 2018

Carbon steel is in addition to C, and no man-made steel to add other alloy elements, of course, C is also controlled to a certain degree, the hardness is larger than the pure iron. In general, it does not have the ability to resist corrosion.

Galvanized steel is on the surface of the steel plated with a layer of zinc, iron such as home, resistance to corrosion, the corrosion mechanism is the electrochemical corrosion surface first took place in the corrosion of zinc to protect iron.

Stainless steel refers to an alloy steel that contains more than or equal to 13% Cr and is not rusty in the atmosphere. There are many kinds of stainless steel, such as ferritic stainless steel, austenitic stainless steel, martensitic stainless steel and so on. The resistance of different stainless steel to corrosion is different, and the corrosion resistance of different medium is different.

The three can be distinguished, carbon steel will not be said, right? Look at it, the surface of the galvanized steel is zinc, not iron, the surface is white, and the stainless steel is white.

It is also different in magnetic fields. Carbon steel and galvanized steel are not different. Stainless steel is generally not magnetic, but it is also not absolute. Austenite is not magnetic, but ferrite is, but it is also weak.
