Geronimo Alloys custom-manufactures parts and equipment from a wide range of stainless steel alloy varieties, including 300 series stainless steel and 400 stainless steel. Both families of stainless alloysare known for their resistance to corrosion, rust, and stains caused by water and exposure to the elements. Stainless steel differs from ordinary carbon steels in terms of chromium content. This added metal forms a film of chromium oxide when exposed to oxygen, which prevents the diffusion of oxygen to the surface of the steel and blocks the spread of rust and other types of corrosion to the interior structure of stainless steel parts.
There are many stainless steel variants available today that are used across different industries and applications. The most commonly known are 300 series stainless steel and 400 series stainless steel, which are classified according to the proportion of chromium and other elements present in the metal. The 300 stainless steel family features nickel in various proportions while 400 stainless steel has added molybdenum. The 300 series stainless steel family, in particular, is resistant to nitric acid and phosphoric acid and is also unaffected by ammonium hydroxide and other weak alkaline substances such as urea. Low-carbon stainless steels such as 316LVM, which is used in body implants and piercings, show minimal precipitation of embedded chromium carbides caused by welding
With over 150 grades available, stainless steel is a favored material for many different applications. Stainless steel is commonly used in fields such as architecture, cutlery and cookware, appliances, industrial equipment, aerospace, jewelry, and healthcare. This is due to the very high resistance to corrosion and the luster exhibited by stainless steel. Stainless steel alloys are also impervious to flaking, which makes them popular choices for applications that involve a lot of rubbing and movement, such as high-quality firearms.
Stainless steel is available in a wide range of finishes, ranging from coarse abrasive finish to a highly-reflective mirror finish for architectural and artistic applications. We roll the alloy to the specified size and thickness then anneal and apply finishes as desired. As it is 100% recyclable, old stainless steel parts may also be refinished and reused whenever applicable.
