Stainless steel elements and effects

Stainless steel elements and effects

Carbon (C)
1. Improve the blade’s resistance to deformation and tensile strength
2. Improve hardness and improve wear resistance

Chromium (Cr)
1. Strengthen hardness, tensile strength and toughness
2. Anti-wear and corrosion

Cobalt (Co)
1. Increase hardness and strength so that it can withstand high temperature quenching
2. Some individual characteristics strengthen other elements in more complex alloys

Copper (Cu)
1. Enhance corrosion resistance
2. Enhance wear resistance

Manganese (Mn)
1. Increase hardenability, abrasion resistance and tensile strength
2. Take away oxygen from the molten metal by separating oxidation and separating vaporization
3. Increase hardness when added in large quantities, but increase brittleness

Molybdenum (Mo)
1. Increase strength, hardness, hardenability and toughness
2. Improve machinability and corrosion resistance

Nickel (Ni)
1. Increase strength, hardness and corrosion resistance

Phosphorus (P)
1. Increase strength, machinability and hardness
2. Easy to crack when the concentration is too large

Silicon (Si)
1. Increased ductility
2. Increase tensile strength
3. Take away oxygen from the molten metal by separating oxidation and separating vaporization

Sulfur (S)
1. A small amount of use can improve machinability

Tungsten (W)
1. Increase strength, hardness and toughness

Vanadium (V)
1. Increase strength, hardness and shock resistance
2. Prevent the generation of particles
