I believe that many partners who are choosing shelves will have a long time comparison in order to select a favorite style in the face of a variety of materials on the market. Plastic, aluminum and steel are the most common ones used to make shelves on the market. So the little partner who likes steel must have such trouble: do I choose carbon steel or stainless steel?


We all know that carbon steel and stainless steel have the same basic composition of iron and carbon. The main difference between them is the alloy content. The alloy content of carbon steel is lower than 10.5%, while the chromium content of stainless steel must be greater than or equal to 10.5%. Carbon steel and stainless steel are different. It cannot be saidThe kitchen shelf made of carbon steel or stainless steel that the material is better. The specific choice of material depends on the environment. Next, I will explain and compare their respective characteristics.


Features of carbon steel:

Carbon steel is iron carbon alloy with carbon content less than 2.11%, also called carbon steel Generally, the higher the carbon content in carbon steel, the greater the hardness and the higher the strength, but it is easy to rust. However, at present, the surface of carbon steel can also get good rust prevention and corrosion prevention through electroplating or baking paint treatment, and its service life is longer than that of ordinary spraying products.


Features of stainless steel:

The thin and dense chromium rich oxide film on the stainless steel surface makes the stainless steel water pipe have good corrosion resistance in all water quality, including soft water. Stainless steel has corrosion resistance, enhanced strength, steel deformation is not easy to crack and environmental protection performance, with good ductility and toughness. It is suitable for use in harsh environments (indoor and outdoor environments such as wet, acid and alkali). Because the production process of stainless steel is complex, the cost will be higher than that of carbon steel.


I believe you have a better answer to which shelf to take home after reading here.
