Door Handle Stainless Steel Casting
Dec. 16, 2021
Door handles are the handle hardware installed to open or close a door. There are different types of door handles designed for exterior doors, interior doors, cabinet doors, and car doors. The most common types of door handles are lever handles and door knobs. Door handles can be made from a variety of materials, with the most common materials being stainless steel and aluminum.
Material: 304 stainless steel
Grade 304 stainless steel has a maximum of 0.8% carbon, between 16% and 24% chromium, a maximum of 35% nickel and a minimum of 50% iron. The combination of these metals in stainless steel results in high corrosion resistance, durability and hardness.
Because door handles are always in contact with people, they tend to harbor bacteria. If the door handle is 304 stainless steel, there is less chance of bacteria remaining on the door handle and it is safer. In addition, because 304 stainless steel has good corrosion resistance, door handles will not rust even after many years. Finally, 304 stainless steel also offers a clean finish and bright aesthetics that are popular in modern society.
Doorknob Stainless Steel Investment Casting
The stainless steel casting process is actually an investment casting process in which molten stainless steel is poured into a mold to solidify and obtain a strong, dense stainless steel material in the desired pattern. As with other stainless steel components, investment casting is a common production process for manufacturing door handles. When corrosion resistance and strength are required for certain products, stainless steel investment casting is the perfect solution.
