Corrosion resistance of Dongguan precision castings
- 2020-03-13-

All Dongguan precision casting metals react with oxygen in the atmosphere to form an oxide film on the surface. Unfortunately, the iron oxide formed on ordinary carbon steel continues to oxidize, causing the corrosion to continue to expand and eventually forming holes. You can use paint or oxidation-resistant metals (such as zinc, nickel and chromium) for electroplating to ensure the surface of carbon steel, but, as people know, this protection is only a thin film. If the protective layer is damaged, the steel below will begin to rust.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel depends on chromium, but because chromium is one of the components of steel, the protection methods are different.

When the amount of chromium added in Dongguan precision castings reaches 10.5%, the atmospheric corrosion resistance of steel is significantly increased, but when the chromium content is higher, although the corrosion resistance can still be improved, it is not obvious. The reason is that when steel is alloyed with chromium, the type of surface oxide is changed to a surface oxide similar to that formed on pure chromium metal. This tightly adhered chromium-rich oxide protects the surface and prevents further oxidation. This oxide layer is extremely thin, and the natural luster of the steel surface can be seen through it, giving the stainless steel a unique surface. Moreover, if the surface layer is damaged, the exposed steel surface will react with the atmosphere to repair itself and re-form this oxide&"passivation film GG", continuing to play a protective role.

Therefore, all stainless steel elements have a common characteristic, that is, the chromium content is above 10.5%.
