rust reason of stainless steel pipe

Date:Sep 25, 2018

 The beachfront area uses 316 or 304 stainless steel to withstand seawater corrosion.

【Possible causes】

  1. Chlorine ions are present in the use environment. Chlorine ions are widely available, such as salt, sweat, sea water, sea breeze, soil, and so on. Stainless steel in the presence of chlorine ions in the environment, corrosion quickly, even more than ordinary mild steel. Therefore, the use of stainless steel requirements, and the need to constantly wipe, remove dust, keep clean and dry.KIMBERLY PIPE 12- (294).jpg

  2. 2. No solid solution treatment. The alloying elements did not dissolve into the matrix, resulting in a low alloy content and poor corrosion resistance of the matrix.

  3. 3. This non-titanium and niobium-free material is inherently prone to intergranular corrosion. The addition of titanium and niobium, coupled with stable treatment, can reduce intergranular corrosion. In the air or chemically corrosive medium can resist corrosion of a high-alloy steel, stainless steel is a beautiful surface and corrosion resistance is good, do not have to undergo color coating and other surface treatment, and play the inherent surface properties of stainless steel, used in a variety of steel, commonly known as stainless steel.
