The so-called corrosion resistance is actually anti-oxidation. As long as it is a steel product, it will react with oxygen in the atmosphere. Once it happens, it will expand continuously, and finally it will not be able to use the entire product, but we can avoid it by processing. In the case of the occurrence of the general situation, the corrosion resistance of the 304 stainless steel pipe
is mainly coated with anti-oxidation metals such as zinc, nickel and chromium to form an anti-oxidation protective film on the surface.
Among the anti-oxidation metals, chromium is able to determine the corrosion resistance of the final 304 stainless steel tube. Generally, when the amount of chromium is increased to 10% or more, the corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance of the steel will be greatly increased. And thanks to the use of chrome, the 304 stainless steel tube emits natural light, making the entire surface look more beautiful and generous. However, if this layer of anti-oxidation protective film is damaged, the 304 stainless steel tube will still rust.
