Steel is made stainless by the addition of alloying elements such as chrome, nickel and molybdenum. Stainless steel has a non-rusting quality thus its ability to resist the effects of weather, atmosphere, water and solutions like acids, salts and alkalis. This resistance is attained by alloying the steel primarily with chromium and some other alloying elements such as nickel, molybdenum, manganese, titanium, niobium, copper and nitrogen. Different alloying elements gives rise to different structures as they solidify.
