Stainless Steel Etching

Advanced Chemical etching has many years' experience of precision stainless steel etching; we chemically etch a wide variety of different grades, such as the austenitic (300 series) and martensitic (400 series). Importantly as the temper or hardness of the material doesn't affect our chemical etching process, we are able to etch delicately soft stainless in the annealed condition or very hard grades. Here at ACE we can facilitate the chemical etching of stainless steel in thickness ranges of 0.025mm (0.001") to 1.5mm (0.060").

Due to its versatility stainless steel is used in a wide variety of products in many industry sectors. Examples of components that are etched from stainless steel are heat exchanger shims, metal enclosures and facia panels with etched details. Multi-stage profiled cutting blades for the medical industry. Springs, shims and washers for aerospace applications. In the automotive sector diaphragm springs for fuel management systems. Stainless steel is also a preferred metal due to its corrosion resistance properties and for the different versatile grades that are available.
