Maintenance method of Stainless steel
Oct 23, 2018

The use of stainless steel with the development of the economy has become more extensive, people in daily life and stainless steel, but many people do not know much about the performance of stainless steel, the maintenance of stainless steel is known to a few. Many people think that stainless steel is never rust, in fact, stainless steel corrosion resistance is good, the reason is that the surface of a layer of purification film, in nature, it with more stable form of oxides exist.   

     In other words, although stainless steel according to the use of different conditions, oxidation degree is not the same, but eventually are oxidized, this phenomenon is often called corrosion. Bare corrosive environment of the metal surface of all the electrochemical reaction or chemical reaction, uniform corrosion, stainless steel surface purification film corrosion resistance of the site, due to self-excited reaction and formed pitting reaction, the formation of small holes, coupled with oxygen ions close to form a strong corrosive solution, accelerating the corrosion reaction speed.   

     There are intergranular corrosion cracking in stainless steel, all of which have a destructive effect on the purification film of the stainless steel surface. Therefore, the stainless steel surface must be regularly cleaned to maintain its gorgeous surface and prolong its service life.   

    Cleaning stainless steel surface must be careful not to occur surface scratches, avoid the use of bleaching ingredients and abrasive detergent, wire balls, grinding tools, etc., for the removal of washing fluid, washing at the end with water rinse surface.   

     The stainless steel surface is dust and easy to remove dirt, the use of soap weak detergent to wash, binder ingredients, using alcohol or organic solvents (ether, benzene) scrub. Stainless steel surface grease, oil pollution, with a soft cloth after wiping clean, with a neutral detergent or ammonia solution or with a special detergent washing.   

     The stainless steel surface has bleach and a variety of acid adhesion, rinse immediately with water, and then wash with ammonia solution or neutral carbonated soda solution, wash with neutral detergent or lukewarm water. The stainless steel surface has the rainbow pattern, is excessively uses the detergent or the oil causes, washes with the lukewarm water neutral detergent to be able to wash away.

Rust caused by dirt on stainless steel surface can be washed with 10% nitric acid or abrasive detergent, and can also be washed with special washing medicine. As long as we use the correct maintenance method, can prolong the service life of stainless steel, maintain its clean, bright, gorgeous style.
