Antibacterial Stainless Steel


●    In all metals, silver antibacterial ability is strongest, about 100 times of copper.

●    Have more broad antibacterial spectrum, can kill more types of pathogenic bacteria.

●    Add less than one over ten of copper, stainless steel has a little influence on the performance of the original level.

●    Silver and iron is immiscible element of a typical system, almost no solubility in liquid or solid state

●    Existing casting process is easy to produce silver element segregation, the improvement of heat treatment process is very limited

●    Antibacterial performance is not stable, the high energy consumption of the heat treatment process, the effect is not obvious, it is difficult to use in the industrial production

●    Through the silver compound is added to the raw materials, the compound decomposition in the process of sintering formed dispersed silver particles

●    Excellent antibacterial properties, antibacterial above 99%

●    Stable antibacterial ability, silver particle dispersed evenly

●    Have permanent antibacterial ability, does not fear the scrapes and cuts

Antibacterial test results 

The Ag - Fe phase diagram shows that Ag - Fe is insoluble in solid state and does not form intermetallic compounds

Antibacterial Stainless Steel

●    Use of powder injection molding, can't solve the silver iron miscibility engineering problem

●    The nanosize silver particles were distributed evenly in the stainless steel substrate, produce good antibacterial performance

●    Only add trace silver, will not affect the performance of stainless steel, not significantly increase the cost of stainless steel

●    Can manufacture different type of antibacterial stainless steel
