General Specifications Of The Products You Are Using

Raw materials of all products manufactured by İnter Çelik are (18 / 10 Cr-Ni ) Grade 304 Stainless Steel.

Brightness on the surface of products is the original color of Chromium (Cr) and Nickel (Ni) inside the products, not any coating material. It is obtained by releasing Chromium and Nickel through polishing methods.

The products, which we manufacture with Stainless Steel’s feature of not keeping bacteria on, are suitable for human health, robust, long-lasting and easy clean.

Stainless Steel is acid sensitive as well as many metals. Everything acidic spoils its chemical and physical structure. It causes color change on the products firstly and rusting after a little while.

Due to the fact that all items produced from stainless steel are hard, they are scratched, therefore rubbing with wire or hitting with each other causes scratches. Scratching spoils brightness, which is the skin of steel, and it leads to shorten the useful life.

You should pay attention to usage instructions importantly in terms of longevity of your product. Otherwise, errors arising from usage will be excluded from the scope of warranty.
