|Stainless steel contains chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), carbon (C),
silicon (Si), manganese (Mn),
phosphorus (P), sulfur (S), aluminum (Al), cobalt (Co), iron (I), and other alloys. The
hardness is great but the processing is difficult. The raw quality is stable, non poison,
resistant to acid and alkaline. It is the ultimate choice of material for the kitchen and
bathroom items. In order to give convenience to your usage, we have provided some general
information concerning stainless steel for your reference.
1. Stainless steel and other range of application:
|(International Code #304):
|Contains chromium 18%, nickel 8% and alloy.
Use for kitchen and bathroom items. (Do not magnetize)
|(International Code #316):
|Contains chromium 18%, nickel 10% and alloy.
Use for manufacturing tableware. (Do not magnetize)
|(International Code #430):
|Contains chromium 18%, nickel 0% and alloy.
Use for stainless steel knives. (Magnetize)
2. How to differentiate stainless steel products:
Guaranteed products of 18-8 stainless steel quality do not magnetize. You can use an
ordinary magnet to distinguish. If it magnetizes, it may either a counterfeit of a plated wire
or a low quality type of stainless steel wire which can be covered with rust easily.
3. Maintenance and cleaning stainless steel:
Stainless steel products are long lasting products. Normally, it only needs hot water to wash
away the grease. And with the use of a bristle brush, it even looks shinier like brand new.
Under such case when water impurities cause the stainless steel to rust which is not caused by
the quality of the stainless steel itself, use a lemon to wipe it out.
