Etched Stainless Steel Sheet Metal
TBK has the ability to produce etched stainless steel sheet and other metal sheets with precise and long-lasting etched patterns. The patterns are finished by applying an electrochemical technique, which is using a protective film of acid resistance to partially cover the surface of the metal. The exposed areas are etched by acid to remove a thin layer of metal, the surface becomes dull and matte, and the concealed areas are protected by the film and retain their original condition, the non-etch areas can be finished with some specified colors before or after the etching process. Such a contrast creates a stunning pattern, which can be designed as a specified effect. The etched metal sheet is an ideal material for decoration purposes such as wall cladding, ceilings, furniture, elevator interiors, and more.

Applications For Etched Stainless Steel Sheet
Stainless steel etched sheet is a kind of metal that has its surface etched with a pattern. It is generally used in household appliances and elevator decoration. Other applications of etched stainless steel sheets include luxury hotel decoration, elevator cabin doors, restaurants, and shopping mall decorations. The price of this type of metal sheet is also very reasonable. In order to get a hold of the product, all you have to do is to go through its features and benefits.
The surface of the metal sheet is etched using an acid called ferric chloride. The acid eats away the part’s surface and leaves a masking layer that reveals the etched design. Certain stainless steel sheet finishes are possible using a grinding or milling machine. Choosing the best method depends on your purpose for etching the metal. In addition to this, there are also many advantages of etched metal sheets.
Options For Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet
In addition to etched stainless steel sheets, there are various other types of patterned sheet metal. All of them can bring you added value, such as aesthetic appearance, corrosion resistance, durability, and more. But different options of sheet metal finishes provide different properties, performances, and processing costs, so it’s so critical to consider your specific needs when choosing the suitable surface finishes for your stainless steel sheet.

What To Consider When Buying Etched Metal Sheets?
When purchasing etched metal sheets, you need to consider several factors. You can opt for a standard design, or you can opt for one with a custom design etched into the metal. Both options will retain their clarity, although the former is recommended in most cases. Adding color will give the metal sheets dynamic beauty. Listed below are some things to keep in mind when buying etched metal sheets.
The thickness of the material is also important to consider. For instance, thicker materials require specialized bases, which can be removed during the cutting process. You may want to consider buying a smaller sheet to start with, and then use a larger one to create a larger print. Either way, you’ll want to consider the thickness of the metal sheet you’re using and the type of design you plan to make with it.
You should also consider the material’s composition. Stainless steel, for example, is more durable than aluminum and copper. However, these two metals may take a longer time to etch. If you plan on engraving your artwork, make sure you choose a sheet of metal that’s not too thick. Moreover, check if the metal has a protective coating. If it does, it may affect the process.
After you’ve decided on a etching design, you need to make sure it has a clear surface. Using a soft, dry cloth and steel wool, you can clean out the roughness and imperfections. Then, it’s time to apply the protective layer of methylated spirits and prepare the surface. The process will take a little while, but it’s well worth it.
You can choose etched metal sheet that has a surface finish that’s compatible with your project. This type of etching is ideal for jewelry making and metal art. If you’re not confident about your metal art skills, consider a sheet that is made of a strong and durable material, such as stainless steel or aluminum.
Material Options For Etched Stainless Steel Sheet
There are 2 grades of stainless steel sheets that are commonly used for etching process, and they are generally defined according to their proportion of alloying composition. They all have common features such as durability and resistance to rust, corrosion, and stain. However, there are still a few slightly different properties between these grades. There are two common grades of stainless steel sheets (304 and 316L) that we commonly used for mirror polished finish as below:
304 Stainless Steel Sheet
Grade 304 is the most widely used type of stainless steel sheet metal that we usually find in various commercial applications, 304 stainless steel sheet has resistance to rust and corrosion, and it’s a fire-proof and heat-resistance material as it comes with a high melting point, and the surface finished with mirror finish is easy to clean and requires low maintenance. 304 stainless steel with a polished surface is a versatile type of material be widely used for bathroom ceilings, walls, kitchen sinks, backsplashes, food equipment, and so on.
316L Stainless Steel Sheet
For further enhancing the ability to resist corrosion and oxidation, stainless steel of grade 316L is the most ideal one, and it’s regarded as marine grade stainless steel. The letter “L” means LOW CONTENT of carbon, which is lower than 0.03%, which has the better properties of easy welding and resistance to rust and corrosion. 316 stainless steel sheet with BA, 2B finish is generally used for the facade, and other indoor and outdoor decorative applications, tools and facilities for food, and any application that highly require resistance.
Benefits Of Etched Stainless Steel Sheets
If you are looking for a sustainable and corrosion resistant building material, you should consider etched stainless steel sheets. Etched stainless steel has many benefits, including its durability, ease of work, and cost-effectiveness. Here are a few examples of the ways it can benefit your business and building.
