Re: Hydrochloric acid (brick cleaner) to clean s/s props?
This is exactly how I thought SS is structured. It is classed as a self repairing material, which is why it is so popular.
I don't understand how it can become brittle, unless it is a very thin coat, or has a high Chromium level, as in for example Surgical Stainless Steel.
Perhaps the experts can provide a little more explanation please.
