Q. Why is my stainless steel rusting
A. It isn’t, the surface has been contaminated by airborne or local pollutants, dust, dirt, grease, debris which in themselves have oxidised giving the appearance of rusting. Stainless steel needs to be cleaned to maintain its appearance. Grades of stainless steel (which there are many) and the surface finish (grained to mirror polished) have to be carefully chosen for the intended purpose, the grade may not be suitable for the location. See our technical pages.
