Stainless Steel Photochemical Etching

Stainless steel is one of the most common materials used in photo etching due to its corrosion resistance, low cost, and high versatility. Offering unmatched durability and tolerances, photo etched stainless steel can be used in various industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • MedicalQuick Quote
  • Electronic
  • Automotive
  • & More!

Photo etched stainless steel can contain various elements depending on the application at hand. Common elements used in conjunction with stainless steel include nickel, carbon, chromium, and more. Microphoto’s Photo Chemical Machining process can produce photo etched stainless steel products without compromising the mechanical or elemental integrity of the material.
