Stainless Steel, also known as inox steel or inox is an iron alloy that contains about 10.5% chromium content by mass along with carbon. Unlike carbon steel, stainless steels do not suffer uniform corrosion when exposed to wet environments. Unprotected carbon steel rusts readily when exposed to the combination of air and moisture.
