GSM have decades of experience etching stainless steel with the option of etching either 304 or 316 stainless steel labels, GSM can recommend an etched label that has the capability to withstand some of the harshest environments.
Etching is the process of screen printing a chemical resist to the areas of the material that are to be left natural or untouched. We then immerse the stainless steel into an acid solution which then etches away the areas that are unprotected by the resist. Once the resist is washed away it reveals the etched detail against the natural stainless steel.
In a modern world chemically etched labels prove to be the ultimate durable and hard wearing solution. A traditional method that is kept alive by modern requirements.
