Photochemical Machining Materials: Stainless Steel

Stainless steel was discovered in 1913 by English metallurgist Harry Brearly who realized chromium when combined with low carbon steel becomes stain resistant. In addition to chromium, stainless steel may also contain other elements, such as nickel, molybdenum, and niobium to name a few. Adding a minimum of 12% chromium to the steel will make it more rust resistant than other types of steel.

Stainless steel is our most popular metal for photo etching projects, and we are experts at photo etching stainless steel.
