Unlike Chrome plated bathroom accessories, GRADE 304 Stainless Steel is naturally resistant to corrosion and staining and as such it doesn’t require any added protective coating. Since it is one material throughout, it will never flake, peel, chip or rust.
Stainless Steel is a remarkable material because it has the amazing ability to form an invisible protective layer under the influence of oxygen, which is naturally present in air and water. This self-repairing Chromium Oxide layer forms on the surface and will reform itself even if the surface is scratched or otherwise damaged. Unlike other materials GRADE 304 Stainless Steel does not require an extra coating to stay bright and shiny for years to come.
GRADE 304 Stainless Steel is an incredibly hygienic material - it is non-porous, it does not corrode, nor does it collect bacteria or algae, which makes it ideal for any bathroom space. What’s more, it is really easy to keep clean and sterile.

Do not use any TILE GROUT cleaning chemicals or Chlorine based chemicals on your products as these will cause permanent damage.
