How to choose the stainless steel suitable for the sink? Three tricks teach you to choose a stainless steel sink.
See the material:
The difference between stainless steel material is corrosion resistance, 304 is the best, 202 and 201 are usually used for poor quality sink plates, and the price difference is huge. A simple inspection method. If the sink can be sucked up with a magnet, the sink is definitely not good.
The stainless steel plates of a good sink are all demagnetized and will not contain magnetism at all.
Stainless steel is an iron alloy. The specific gravity of steel is 7.87, and the specific gravity of chromium and nickel is also very high. The specific gravity of these metals is larger than that of steel. If it is counterfeit, inferior stainless steel, such as steel plate chrome plating, the weight is lighter.
Nowadays, the poor quality sink technology is relatively poor, usually only the simplest one or two.
Good surface treatments for sinks include pearl surface, frosted, wire-drawing, embossing, mirror surface, etc., taking advantage of their advantages, and the cost is high, and then chemical surface treatment is performed on them, the surface is luxurious and long-lasting. The pearl silver surface process uses sandblasting on the surface first, and then chemical surface treatment on it. The surface is luxurious and lasts forever. The mercerized surface is a combination of the advantages of frosted wire drawing process and the advantages of polished mirror surface, which is exquisite and silky like satin.
See how leveling is:
One of the important criteria for checking the quality and specifications of the sink is the levelness, observing the vertical or horizontal line of the sink. The flatness error value of a good sink will not be less than 0.1mm
A good sink must meet these three standards.So if you need to make high-quality stainless steel sinks, we recommend using 304 stainless steel as the sink material. 201 and 202 types can also be used to produce stainless steel sinks.
