Stainless Steels (aka Chromium Steels) are those that add 12 to 30% Chromium. The 400 series are magnetic. They are available as plates, slabs, and rounds etc, some of which are machinable. Their core loss is high, so they are used only in DC or low frequency applications where high corrosion resistance is required. Their permeability is low, ranging 500 to 2000. Applications include rotors and solenoids.
