Stainless steel is a steel alloy with 11% chromium. The chromium in stainless steel forms a film of chromium oxide over the surface of the metal, so that it is not exposed to air and water, that can trigger corrosion. This alloy is used for manufacturing various products, especially cutlery. Stainless steel sinks are among the most commonly used products of this alloy. The main reason for its popularity is its durability, as compared to other materials, like porcelain and cast iron. Stainless steel is rust-resistant, and retains its luster for a longer period. It is perfect for making deeper sinks, as it is strong enough to hold more utensils and can match almost all types of interior decor.
Undermount kitchen sinks are made from a variety of other materials, like copper and granite. Amongst these, the stainless steel kind is the most popular, since they are easy to maintain and where its sleek surface goes well with a modern kitchen. There are two types of this kitchen sink―one that comes with a single sink, and the other, with two fitted sinks. It is advisable not to fit these sinks if you have a countertop made from tile or laminate, because of their weak stabilizing features; granite or marble are the best materials.
▣ While cleaning the utensils, sinks with thinner steel create more sound, whereas, a thick stainless steel sink will create less noise. The advised range for a stainless steel gauge is between 18-20g or lower.
