WHY STAINLESS STEEL SINKS?

 

More people buy stainless-steel kitchen sinks than any other type of sink.  For more than half a century, stainless steel sinks have been used in industrial, architectural, culinary, and residential applications.  Stainless steel is a low-carbon steel which contains chromium at 10.5% or more by weight.  The addition of this chromium gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion-resisting and enhanced mechanical properties.

The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible corrosion-resisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen. Nickel also gives stainless steel a lustrous and brighter appearance which is less gray than steel that has no nickel.

Stainless steel sinks by Just have many advantages and possess qualities that make them an excellent choice for most environments.

  • Affordability – Fro high-end to very affordable, there are stainless models suitable for every need.
  • Improved – New technology allows stainless steel sinks to continue to be improved and upgraded. The newer 16- and 18-gauge sinks are thicker and much less noisy than their less-expensive predecessors.
  • Durable – Stainless steel is extremely long lasting! Stainless steel is perfect for sinks and other applications as it won’t chip, crack, fade, or stain.
  • Bigger Bowl Capacity – Stainless steel’s relatively light yet strong properties allow it to be formed into larger and deeper bowls than cast iron or many other materials.
  • Easy to Take Care of – Stainless steel is easy to take care of and unaffected by household chemicals. It retains the original luster when cleaned with household cleanser and soft towel. Thus making it the ideal surface for sinks in the kitchen, bathroom sinks, laundry sinks and any other design and residential application.
  • Will Not Rust – The metal imparts a rich glow and boosts natural corrosion resistance. Available stainless steel finishes range from a mirror-like shine to a satin luster.
  • Absorbs Shock – Stainless steel actually “gives” on impact to help cushion crystal, fine china, everyday glassware, and ceramic dishes against accidental breakage.
  • Accents the Detail – Interior designers know that stainless steel sinks and appliances can accent a room’s unique architectural details and eye-catching finishes. Its clean lines and cool textures reflect the surrounding colors and patterns. The timeless look of stainless steel will complement your décor long after trendy colors go out of style.
  • Longevity – Stainless steel is the very best choice for years of optimal performance and continued, high-quality good looks.
  • Recyclability and Eco Friendly “Green – Stainless steel is a recyclable material. Stainless steel doesn’t degrade or lose any of its properties in the recycling process making stainless steel sinks a good green option. With a strong commitment to Green Awareness, Just Manufacturing utilizes salvaged, raw stainless steel in our Made in USA production processes.
