Etched stainless steel sheet

 

Etching stainless steel is done for a variety of reasons including the

creation of prints, decorations and personalization. The etching process is

the result of a chemical reaction that removes a layer of steel in the exposed

area of a chemically coated steel plate.

 


Etchers commonly use one or more different types of acid when creating their

works. It depends on personal preference and desired outcome.

Etching steel takes longer than etching other kinds of metals. Acids diluted

with water or vinegar typically perform better on stainless steel than

concentrated acids.

 

The chosen etching design or pattern is as important as the steel. The novice

etcher should choose a high-contrast, black-and-white design that makes the

transferring process as simple as possible. Once the etcher chooses the

design, the etcher prepares the steel to get it ready to acceptthe design.

 


Completing the Process
Place the stainless steel facedown in the acid to permanently etch the design

into the steel. Take care to ensure the steel does not touch the bottom of the

container. The chemical bath is more effective with regular water agitation,

usually done every few minutes. The steel should remain in the solution until

the carved lines are the desired depth. Remove the steel from the acid, and

rinse it with water to remove any remaining acid. Remove the resist by using

acetone, alcohol, turpentine, or steel wool.
