A2 Type 304 Stainless Steel can also be called 18/8 because it contains approximately 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel. It is austenitic steel and is non-magnetic. The chromium provides a corrosion and oxidation resistance, although it may tarnish. It is immune to foodstuffs, sterilising solutions, most organic chemicals and dyestuffs and also a wide variety of inorganic chemicals. As such, it is used extensively for many types of fixings and fasteners used in sanitary or hygiene applications.
