Grade 304 is made up of at least 8% nickel (Franke’s contains 10%). It is the most frequently used of the three grades, valued for its ability to provide corrosion resistance and to maintain the capacity of the sheet metal to be bent, welded, stamped and/or drawn. Franke relies on these properties to achieve the elegance and detail of its designs. Franke Finish: Sheet metal can be purchased pre-polished. There is a reason Franke never does so for its deep drawn sinks. While it could reduce costs in the manufacturing process, the Franke difference is a finish best achieved in the post-manufacture process. A Franke sink’s silky luster comes from machine and hand-finishing operations that enable the sink to keep its beauty over its long life. Many feel that the look of a Franke hand-finished sink actually improves with age. And Franke’s luxurious and desireable ultra satin surface makes our stainless steel easier to clean. It is also an important sanitary feature. The smooth surface obtained by our manufacturing and polishing methods ensures better corrosion resistance. What Puts The “Luxury” In Franke Luxury Stainless Steel: Why It Makes A Better SinkSeventy percent of sinks are made of stainless steel. As the world’s largest purchaser of stainless steel, Franke has its choice of the best raw materials. But that is only the beginning of the evolution from fine to Franke. By lavishing this material with cost, care and craftsmanship, Franke creates a stainless steel that is “uncommon.” Let us tell you about the choices, the processes and the skills that Franke invests to raise its stainless steel systems to the quality, beauty and longevity its discerning customers deserve The “Why” of Stainless Steel: The reasons almost 70% of all sinks are stainless steel: Does not alter the essence and flavor of food Surface is easy to clean Requires very little upkeep 100% recyclable, making it right for today’s environmentally conscious world Resists corrosion and has hygienic and aseptic properties Does not require the labor-intensive application of an added surface treatment The “What” of Stainless Steel: Stainless steel is an alloy of iron, chromium and nickel, generated to create advantages that individual pure metals do not offer. So it’s a whole greater than the sum of its parts. The name refers to the rust resistant properties of the metal which is “stain-less”, but not “stain-proof.” These are its ingredients: Austenite is a nonmagnetic solid solution of carbon in iron, used in making corrosion- resistant steel of the kind used for making cutlery, hospital and food-service equipment, and tableware. Chromium (Cr) is a hard, malleable, glossy, gray chemical element with no odor or taste, used in alloys to give them corrosion resistance and a glistening look. It is most responsible for the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Nickel (Ni) is a hard, ductile, silvery-white chemical element, a high-luster metal with a high level of corrosion resi
