What is Stainless Steel?

Screenshot 2023-01-14 at 23.23.43Stainless steel is a term used for describing corrosion resistant steel containing at least 10.5% chromium. Various compositions of other elements such as nickel, molybdenum, titanium and niobium are added to achieve improvements in corrosion resistance, heat resisting properties or to improve fabrication. Stainless steel products (such as austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex, super duplex, etc.) are produced in different grades to meet specific application requirements.

Why is maintenance necessary?

Screenshot 2023-01-14 at 23.23.53Stainless steel of the right type and grade for the selected application, can have super corrosion resistance. To maintain this corrosion resistance, care should be taken to avoid cross contamination from the use of non­stainless steel tools during installation and from other sources of contamination such as not washing away salt deposits from a marine atmosphere; strong acid solutions used in pools and also to clean masonry and tiling. Contaminants can cause stainless steel products to appear ‘tea stained’, discoloured and even to corrode without proper maintenance program in place. How often should stainless steel products be cleaned? The answer is quite simple: ‘clean it whenever it is dirty’. This is why James Glen recommends and stocks AUTOSOL Stainless Steel Care Products. Made in Germany, these are premium quality products providing superior cleaning ability and protection.
