Etching Stainless Steel – Stainless Steel Etching

Precision Etching is one of the most versatile manufacturing processes available today. This process is compatible with various materials.Stainless Steel is among the most popular material choices for metal etching applications. Precision Etching stainless steel alloys provide manufacturers huge flexibility for product manufacturing.

However, narrowing down your options when it comes to stainless steel etching can be daunting.

Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, making it suitable for situations where a part may be exposed to the elements for a long period of time.

Stainless steel is also fairly malleable and ductile. Be-Cu etch offers multiple stainless steel alloys precision etching service, including a food-safe variety.

How To Etch Stainless Steel

Metal Grades For Stainless Steel Etching

Stainless steel etching involves selectively removing material from a stainless steel surface using an etchant, typically an acid, to create designs, patterns, or markings. The choice of material grade and its properties can have a significant impact on the etching process. Different grades of stainless steel have varying corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and etchability.Here are some common stainless steel grades and their properties:


304 Stainless Steel

Composition: 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel
Properties: Good corrosion resistance, excellent formability, and moderate strength. It’s a popular choice for etching due to its ease of workability.

316 Stainless Steel

Composition: 16-18% Chromium, 10-14% Nickel, and 2-3% Molybdenum
Properties: Superior corrosion resistance, especially in harsh environments. It may be more challenging to etch due to its increased resistance to chemical attacks.

430 Stainless Steel

Composition: 16-18% Chromium
Properties: Less corrosion-resistant than 304 or 316 stainless steel, but it’s often used in applications where corrosion resistance is not the primary concern. It’s relatively easy to etch.

420 Stainless Steel

Composition: 12-14% Chromium
Properties: It’s a martensitic stainless steel with good hardness and wear resistance. It can be etched but may require more aggressive etchants.

17-4 PH Stainless Steel

Composition: 15-17% Chromium, 3-5% Nickel, 3-5% Copper
Properties: Known for its high strength and hardness, it’s more difficult to etch compared to austenitic stainless steels.

More Stainless Steel

We work with many types of stainless steel and are not limited to the above five grades(as Sandvik Chromflex
(7C27Mo2, 13C26, 12C27, 6C27), Hiflex,Uddeholm strip flapper valve steel). 

When etching stainless steel, you will need to choose an appropriate etchant and process parameters, such as etchant type, concentration, temperature, and etching time, based on the specific grade of stainless steel you are working with. The choice of resist materials (used to protect the areas you don’t want to etch) and the etching method (e.g., chemical or electrochemical etching) will also play a crucial role in achieving the desired results.

Components That Are Produced By Etching Stainless Steel

The popularity of stainless steel makes it a desirable metal for use in fabrication because it is easy to manufacture and has favorable properties for many industrial products.With the photo etching process, the metal is etched evenly without any structural deformations from the hard tooling used in stamping and punching.Since there isn’t a heat point of contact like laser cutting, the parts’ metal properties remain unchanged and free from thermal deformations.Get inspired by our custom etching part projects and contact us to Get Instant Quote for rapid prototype or stainless steel etching parts start from 1pcs.
