Stainless steel is unusual among alloy systems in that its corrosion resistance derives from the passivating ability of a minor constituent, chromium. Thus, while stainless steels can be made to be essentially immune to corrosion in many environments, it can also experience various debilitating forms of localized corrosion, which stem from the failure of this passive film. This chapter explores the behavior of stainless steel in media that promote uniform corrosion and the various mechanisms of localized corrosion, such as pitting and crevice corrosion.
