The main purpose of Stainless Steel Angle is to provide
protection of tiled surfaces against chipping and wear.
Although similar in purpose to both the Aluminium and
Brass Angles, Stainless Steel is used in applications
where far superior mechanical and chemical porperties
Stainless Steel is highly recommended in areas where
strict sanitary requirements / regulations are in place
(i.e: food preparation areas, hospitals, swimming pool
Stainless Steel Angle is available in two grades – Grade
304 which can be used extensively in domestic and
some commercial environments, however it should be
limited only to applications where exposure to water is
intermittent, and Grade 316, which can be used in most
environments where frequent exposure to water occur.
Stainless Steel is highly resistant to corrosion.
However, dependant on the conditions, Stainless
Steel will stain and/or discolour due to surface
deposits and therefore is not maintenance free.
Surface contamination and the formation of deposits
must be prevented.
Industrial and naturally occuring atmospheric conditions
can produce deposits and the frequency of cleaning is
dependant on the application. A simple rule is; ?Clean
the metal when it is dirty in order to restore its original
Never clean Stainless Steel with steel wool.
Marine Grade (316) is the most suited for corrosion
resistance, but it still requires preventative maintenance.
Chlorine and salt deposits will result in discolouration
and possible surface pitting if left unattended.
