About Stainless 17-4 Density
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron and chromium. There are many grades for stainless, but one of the most popular in mechanical engineering is 17-4 which has a density of 7.87 g/cm3. This means that it's just a tad heavier than aluminum at 2.7g/cm3, and 1/14th as heavy as gold (19g/cm3). If you're looking for something with strength and can also resist corrosion from harsh environments like seawater or acidic liquids then stainless may be your material! The properties make it great for handling food because it resists bacteria buildup.
