Are you looking to order stainless steel sheets from a reliable supplier?
Stainless steel is most famously used in cutlery but that’s far from its only use: for example, one of its most recent incarnations is in contemporary jewellery. Believed to have been discovered in 1913, this type of steel is largely attributed to a Sheffield metallurgist called Harry Brearley.
As an alloy, it is mixed with 10.5% chromium which produces a thin layer of oxide on the surface known as a passive layer.
Stainless steel is brilliant for the food industry as it’s corrosion resistant, so won’t be affected by acidic foods like fruit juices. In addition, it is useful for places where hygiene is an important factor, which is why it’s so great for cutlery and homeware. Thanks to its strength it is also brilliant for barriers, fencing and construction.
