Stainless steel hinges are often the product of choice selected in marine applications because it is highly resistant to rust; much more so than galvanized steel, bronze or brass. While pitting and crevice corrosion will likely develop over time on the surface of a stainless steel hinge, the material is still far superior to other options.
Unlike traditional rusting with other metals, stainless steel corrosion tends to be somewhat random and highly localized. Pits (tiny holes) do have the potential of penetrating substantial thickness, and over time, the pits can cause cracks and leaks.
The unpredicted corrosion failure of stainless steel had long been an unsolved mystery. However, after extensive research it was found that some parts of the molten steel ingot cooled at a different rate than the remainder of the product. It is in these locations where significantly less chromium can be found. It is now known that these tiny areas are actually not stainless due to the missing chromium.
Even though stainless steels all have a high level of resistance to rust and corrosion, the lower alloy grades are known to have increased corrosion resistance in atmospheric conditions. Alternatively, high alloy grades are known to resist corrosion in most alkaline and acid solutions, along with chloride environments even at extreme elevated pressures and temperatures.
