Abstract

Stainless steel refers to the family of iron-based alloys having appreciable concentrations of nickel and chromium alloying elements. The term stainless derives from the corrosion resistance afforded by the protective surface oxide layer attributable to these alloying elements. Specific stainless steels are useful for biomedical applications due to their desirable shaping, joining, and mechanical properties, acceptable corrosion resistance, durability, and manufacturing economics.
