The King of the kitchen; Stainless Steel

September 12, 2016 5:49:38 AM EDT

Close your eyes and imagine your ideal kitchen. Do you want a comfortable, cozy, farmhouse-style kitchen? Or maybe your vision is a sleek, modern kitchen with minimalist appliances?
It doesn't matter if you want an eclectic or a traditional kitchen, a variety of components will contribute to its style, including the cabinets, flooring, countertops, and appliances. But small elements can do a lot to determine your kitchen’s aesthetic, including the type of metal you choose for the cupboard handles, kitchen sink, and light fixtures. Metal Alloys are most commonly seen around the home and especially in the kitchen. The most common presentation of metal in the home is in the electroplated form, where a thin layer of metal is fused by electrolysis to an object. Sheet metal is an alternative for countertops where more common surfaces include granite slabs, laminates and ceramic tiles. Sheet metal is ideal for homes where a unique look and feel is desired, and it also provides a long-lasting surface. There are numerous types of sheet metals to choose from, and knowing which one will work for your kitchen is part of the overall installation.


Why Stainless Steel?
The reasons for choosing stainless steel from the other alloys available for kitchen decoration, installation and cookware, is that its special properties make it uniquely suited to them. Stainless steel is one of the most common metals used in the kitchen. But when used correctly, stainless steel can add useful accents that help your kitchen look modern or contemporary. In addition, people use stainless steel because it’s a durable, strong, low-maintenance metal-it might be a simple choice, but it can last for years. Most people use stainless steel appliances. But if you want a hyper-modern kitchen, consider going a little bit farther. Choose stainless-steel countertops, cabinets, backsplashes, and island toppers, or invest in a stainless-steel oven, stovetop, and industrial-style sink.

The Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink
The formability of stainless steel provides good versatility for the sinks design. dual bowls, integral draining boards, etc. are a great convenience compared to earlier ceramic and other materials versions, while the material is much more resistant to heat and damage than plastic composites. It also complements any worktop color or design.

Stainless Steel Devices and Cookware
Stainless steel has become the major material for both commercial and domestic cookware. The pans must resist even the most aggressive foodstuffs and must survive rough cleaning throughout the years. It is also ideal for the handles which remain cool due to its low thermal conductivity. 304, often called 18-8 or 18-10, is the most common alloy used. There is also a high-end cookware which is available in a better corrosion resistant stainless steel 316L alloy.

Stainless Steel new age modern kitchen Design
Stainless steel can make your kitchen to a new age modern kitchen. Its clean, contemporary lines lend elegance to the design while its functionality will be easy to maintain and safe in contact with food. One more advantage of stainless steel is that it blends harmoniously with other different colors and materials to a perfect chick design. It is truly the king of modern new age design.

Stainless Steel in commercial kitchens & food processing
Food products and ingredients can be corrosive to different materials, especially when they are acidic and contain salt (sodium or calcium chloride). For example, tomato paste equipment, highly-alloyed duplex or super-austenitic grades of stainless steel are available to provide the essential pitting and stress corrosion cracking resistance. Stainless steels, mainly alloy 304, replaced traditional materials such as ceramic tiles, aluminum and plastic laminates due to their heat-resistant, less easily damaged and can be kept scrupulously clean.


To summarize, stainless steel kitchen appliances have been a leading trend in kitchen design for years. Your kitchen can look modern and timeless and stainless steel is the way to make it like this. There’s a reason that stainless steel kitchen appliances have caught on; they’re clean, long lasting, and aesthetically pleasing. Stainless steel kitchen design and stainless steel appliances are the optimal choice for any modern kitchen.

Metals and Beyond - Aluminium Life Cycle

June 28, 2016 6:35:09 AM EDT

"Lightweight, durable and infinitely recyclable, aluminum has become an essential element of daily life. As the sustainable material of choice, its uses and applications can start from everyday items like fuel-efficient vehicles, smart phones, zippers and foil to wiring the nation’s power grid, the apex of the Washington Monument and housing the International Space Station. Aluminum recycling influence on the environment is in constant progress. An amazing 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use. Recycled aluminum production requires only 8% of the energy and creates 8% of the emissions compared with primary production. As more companies look for energy-saving innovations in their products and manufacturing methods, the aluminum industry is poised for even greater success. Aluminum is truly the metal of modern life."

Aluminum Alloy 6063, uses and applications

June 22, 2016 8:21:50 AM EDT

Alloy 6063 is a heat-treatable 0.7% magnesium, 0.4% silicon alloy offering good mechanical properties commonly available in a wide range of extruded sections. Its ready extrudability enables thin walled and intricate hollow shapes to be produced: flats, angles, channels and hollow circular and square sections are all standard profiles. 6063 responds well to polishing, chemical brightening, anodising and dyeing. Similar alloys to 6063 are 6061, 6005 and 6005A, all of which are possible alternatives.

Aluminum Alloy 6063, one of the most popular alloys in the 6000 series, provides good extrudability and high quality surface finish. In heat-treated condition, alloy 6063 provides good resistance to general corrosion, including resistance to stress corrosion cracking. It is easily welded or brazed by various commercial methods. Since 6063 is a heat treatable alloy, strength in its T6 condition can be reduced in the weld region. Alloy 6063 is often used for electrical application in the T5, T52 and T6 conditions due to its good electrical conductivity.

Aluminum Alloy 6063 offers excellent response for anodizing in its T5, T52 , T53 (“matte finish”), T54, T6 (“lusterous” finish) tempers. The most common methods are clear, clear and color dying, and bright dipping and hard coat. Bright dipping provides an economical alternative to mechanical polished finishes while offering improved surface durability. Since 6063 is the alloy of choice for aesthetic applications, special packaging may be required to protect critical exposed surfaces. Alloy 6063 is not typically ink-stenciled in order to preserve its surface finish quality. Alloy 6063 uses for many products, projects and Applications. Some of them are: Architectural and building applications, Extrusions, Window frames, Doors, Shop fittings, Pipes and tubes for Irrigation systems, Railing and furniture's.
