Stainless steel cutlery type
Stainless steel is made from iron-chromium alloy and other trace elements. Due to its good metal properties and resistance to rust as other metals, the resulting vessels are aesthetically pleasing and durable. As a result, more and more are being used to make tableware and gradually enter the home.
(1) Stainless steel tableware material composition: household goods stainless steel can be divided into three levels of 430, 304 (18-8), 18-10.
430 stainless steel: Iron +12% chromium, can prevent the oxidation caused by natural factors, called stainless steel, coded 430 in JIS, so it is also called 430 stainless steel. However, 430 stainless steel cannot withstand the oxidation caused by chemicals in the air. After 430 stainless steel is not used for a period of time, it will still be oxidized (rusted) due to unnatural factors.
18-8 stainless steel: Iron +18% chromium +8% nickel, can resist chemical oxidation, this stainless steel in the JIS code is No. 304, so it is also known as 304 stainless steel.
18-10 stainless steel: But there are more and more chemical components in the air. Some places with more serious pollution will have rust in 304, so some high-grade products will be made of 10% nickel to make it more durable. More resistant, this stainless steel is called 18-10 stainless steel. In some of the tableware instructions, there is a saying that “the use of 18-10 most advanced medical stainless steel material”. Stainless steel can be divided into three categories according to the metallographic structure: austenitic stainless steel, ferritic stainless steel, and martensitic stainless steel. The main components of stainless steel are iron, chromium and nickel alloys. In addition, trace elements such as manganese, titanium, cobalt, molybdenum, and cadmium are included, which makes the stainless steel stable in performance and has rust and corrosion resistance. Austenitic stainless steels are not easily magnetized due to the special nature of the internal molecular structure.
(2) Stainless steel tableware classification
Chinese style: mainly for gold and silver used in hotels, Western style: mainly for cutlery spoons for Western food, more for Western restaurants
(3) Stainless steel antibacterial tableware
Stainless steel antibacterial tableware refers to a new type of stainless steel tableware with the function of killing or inhibiting microorganisms, and its special feature lies in the materials used.
At present, antibacterial materials are more a kind of new functional materials, such as antibacterial plastics, antibacterial fibers, and fabrics, antibacterial ceramics, antibacterial metal materials, etc., by adding certain antibacterial substances, so that the materials have the ability to inhibit or kill surface bacteria. In the medical field, household products, household appliances, food packaging, and other fields have extremely broad application prospects. In today’s increasingly demanding environmental sanitation, the application of antibacterial materials has received more extensive attention. The application of antibacterial stainless steel materials to tableware is the first of the leading green antibacterial stainless steel tableware brands in China. The materials used are exclusively supplied by Shanghai Baosteel Group. Longview antibacterial stainless steel cutlery is made entirely of antibacterial stainless steel. It has long-lasting, excellent antibacterial properties and maintains good antibacterial properties even when worn.
