Stainless Steel Maintenance Method

Stainless steel with economic development becomes more widely used, is closely related to stainless steel in people's daily life, but a lot of people don't know much about properties of stainless steel, stainless steel maintenance know about more handful. Many people think that stainless steel is rust never, in fact, good corrosion resistance of stainless steel, was formed on the surface of a film of purification, in nature, in more stable oxide form it exists. In other words, although use of stainless steel in different conditions, oxidation levels are not the same, but they have to be oxidized, a phenomenon commonly known as corrosion.

Bare metal surface electro-chemical reactions in corrosive environments or chemical reaction, uniform corrosion, purified membrane on the surface of weak resistance to corrosion of stainless steel parts, pitting established by self-response reactions, small holes, combined with oxygen ions close, forming a strong corrosive solution, accelerating the corrosion reaction rate. Intergranular corrosion of stainless steel internal cracking, all this damage on the purification of stainless steel membrane.

Therefore, regular cleaning and maintenance of stainless steel surfaces must be to keep its surface and to extend its service life. Cleaning stainless steel surfaces must be careful not to scratch the surface, avoid using bleach composition and abrasive liquid, steel ball. Grinding tools, to remove detergent wash rinse surface with clean water again at the end.
 1, stainless steel surface with dust as well as easy to get rid of weak detergent to wash dirt of free SOAP, Binder composition, use of alcohol or organic solvents (ether, benzene), scrubbed.

2, stainless steel surface oil oil oil pollution, after clean with a soft cloth, using neutral detergent or ammonia solution or use special detergent for washing.

3, stainless steel surface with bleach, and acid, immediately wash with water and neutral soda carbonate solution leaching of ammonia solution or wash, wash with neutral detergent or water.

4, Rainbow stripes on the surface of stainless steel, is caused by using too much detergent or oil, washing can be washed with warm water and neutral detergent.

5, stainless steel surface rust caused by dirt, available 10% nitric acid or abrasive detergent cleaning, you can also use special wash drug wash.

If we use the correct maintenance methods, you can extend the life of stainless steel.
