History of stainless steel

History of stainless steelHarry Brearley was born on Feb 18, 1871 and by 1907 was in charge of the Brown-Firth Research Labratory in Sheffield, England. The lab was investigating ways to eliminate rust in gun barrels, when by accident, Mr Byerly noticed a discarded steel sample from an earlier test was not rusting, while other samples were. The result was a chrome alloy steel, much more rust resistant than seen before. The date was June 4, 1912. Two months later, on August 20, 1912, stainless steel was cast for the first time.
