Why is 304 stainless steel a smart choice for your bathroom?

- Dec 21, 2018 -

When you choose accessories for your bathroom, what you might not think of is the material from which it was made. However, the choice of materials is something you need to seriously consider. Craig Taylor, from the bathroom butler, said, “The 304 stainless steel is the best material choice for any bathroom accessory or fixture. It may cost a little more, but its many benefits really make it a worthwhile The choice. Not only is it a practical choice, but because it is 100% recyclable, it is also very environmentally friendly."

Craig explained that since its inception, bathroom butlers have been leading the market, focusing on providing the highest quality products: "We can't honestly say that we offer the highest quality bathroom accessories and heated towel racks if they are not all made of 304 stainless steel Made - in simple terms, it is by far the best material for such applications."

Stainless steel was invented more than 100 years ago, when it was found that the addition of chromium to ordinary steel made the steel resistant to contamination and corrosion. “However, stainless steel is particularly interesting as a material because its corrosion and anti-contamination properties are natural, meaning it does not require an additional coating,” Craig explains. He pointed out that there are more than 50 different grades of stainless steel to choose from, but for bathroom fittings and fixtures, grade 304 stainless steel is by far the best choice. He outlined the reasons:

l Unparalleled aesthetic appeal: Class 304 stainless steel has an unparalleled eternal beauty that rivals almost any bathroom style. It is also very versatile because it has both traditional matt, brushed surfaces and high gloss finishes. The gloss of the polished surface makes it ideal, while the more common brushed surface provides practical benefits for products that require more grip, such as handrails. u

l No coating required: Unlike chrome-plated bathroom fittings and fixtures, grade 304 stainless steel is naturally corrosive and stain-resistant, meaning it does not require any additional protective coating. And since it is always a material, it means it will never peel off, flake, chip or rust. It also guarantees excellent surface reliability - therefore, if the surface of the product is scratched, the overall integrity of the product will not be affected.

l Durable and sturdy: Class 304 stainless steel is a sturdy and highly durable material that, if handled properly, will last a lifetime because it will not scratch, dent or fragile.

l Self-healing protective layer: Stainless steel has a unique feature: it has a self-healing function. It achieves this through its amazing ability to form a thin, transparent "chromium oxide" passive layer on its surface. Even if the stainless steel surface is scratched or otherwise damaged, this passive layer with only a few atomic thickness is reformed under the influence of oxygen, which naturally exists in the air we breathe. This explains why Class 304 stainless steel does not require coating or other corrosion protection even after decades of use to maintain shine and shine.

l 100% recyclable: Stainless steel is one of the few materials that can claim 100% recyclability, which means it can be completely melted and made into another product without adding any raw materials. It can be recycled again and again without loss of quality or durability. This greatly reduces the overall carbon footprint of the product because its materials can be reused over and over again. This in turn eliminates the need to extract more resources, which saves a lot of energy and greatly reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

l Low maintenance: To maintain the perfect finish of Class 304 stainless steel, all you need to do is wipe the product with a warm, damp cloth and then dry it with a clean cloth - as simple as that. Dust particles contain contaminants that eventually form marks if they are allowed to settle on any product for long periods of time. These markers can be removed, however, it requires the right equipment and a lot of elbow grease - so keep in mind that prevention is always better than cure - so wipe your product regularly.

l Hygienic Choice: Stainless steel is an incredible hygienic material - it is non-porous, non-corrosive, and does not collect bacteria or algae, making it ideal for any bathroom space. In addition, it is very easy to keep clean and disinfect.
