Translation request of manufacturer's info


Would someone please translate this into English, or at the very least, something that doesn't countermand the laws of physics:
"Important Information about Stainless Steel and its uses at Pemko Stainless Steel is a common name for metal alloys that consist of 10.5% or more Chromium (Cr) and more than 50% Iron (Fe). Although it is called "Stainless", a better term for it is "highly stain resistant". A somewhat dark metal, it looks bright because it reflects light."
Ummm, so it's a dark metal when it doesn't reflect light? No, that can't be right. It only reflects light some of the time? Nope. When it's dark, it's dark. Duh.
WTF does that sentence mean? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Look at your disc brake rotors right after you get out of the car, and then again when it's been sitting for a couple of days and there's been some rain or it's really humid. The rust starts forming right away, and the brake pads rub it off.

No. Steel, at least in a railroad track, is shiney silver except as Rico noted. I paid $10 for a 12" long piece of railroad track last year to use as a makeshift anvil. The top was dark gray and had some nicks in it so I tried to clean it up with my 4" surface grinder. No go. That shit is harder'n chinese 'rithmetic. Must be case hardened to 6 points or better. All I did was sand the surface ever so slightly without doing much harm and I was putting some serious ass into it too. When I walked away from it with my whipped ass it was silver and then turned grayish after a few days. And very heavy. That little section weighs 10 pounds or better.

My father scooped up some 6' lengths of track and buried them in concrete on either side of the driveway of the beach park across the street. Kids were creating big problems, and kids being kids, they'd knocked down all previous attempts by the community to block night time access. Never had a problem after that. Fookin' things are unchanged 35 years later.

Ever seen black chrome? It's dark but highly reflective. But I don't see how a dark, reflective metal can be mistaken for stainless steel which has neither of those properties to my knowledge.
