Components of Stainless Steel
To be classified in the stainless category, steel has to have at least 10% chromium, 17% nickel and less than 1.2% carbon. But, molybdemium and vanadium are sometimes included to increase resistance to corrosion.
Nickel is a source of allergy, '' The Science Press Agency'' reports that the allergies to nickel have passed from 14% in 1984 to 20% in 2003.
Chromium compounds contain pyridinium chlorochromate and potassium dichromate, which are powerful oxidizing agents. Potassium dichromate is used for cleaning laboratory glassware to eliminate all organic materials.
