If you're choosing a new car grille, it's important to consider the durability and quality of the car grille you're buying before you pay for it. Cars are subject to all sorts of wear and tear - not just through regular use but also from weathering and debris. Choosing a car grille which will stand the test of time and look the part year after year is key.
Modern car grilles are manufactured from a range of materials including stainless steel, aluminium, and plastic. But not all of these substances offer the same performance. Let's take a look at three reasons why stainless steel car grills are the way forward.
Without a doubt, one of the primary benefits of stainless steel car grilles is the strength of the material. There are many different kinds of stainless steel, each composed of different ratios of alloys which contribute to the precise properties of that stainless steel.
However, all kinds of stainless steel have high tensile strength, making them difficult to bend or damage. This is ideal for car grilles which might take the occasional knock both on and off-road.
Stainless steel contains a minimum chromium content of 10.5%, which makes it around 200 times more resistant to corrosion than other types of steel without chromium. Ferritic stainless steels, in particular, can boast a chromium content of up to 27%.
Corrosion resistance is ultra-important in all car parts and particularly external ones because, of course, cars are frequently subjected to all kinds of adverse weather conditions in the UK, including rain and storms.
Stainless steel car parts are also long-lasting with minimal maintenance. There's a reason why it's called 'stainless' steel: it's difficult to scratch or damage and it's easy to wipe clean. Stainless steel is commonly used in hospitality and medical settings for this very purpose.
If you like to keep your car sparkling clean then that's another excellent reason to opt for a stainless steel car grille which won't be easily damaged when you're cleaning debris and bug splatter from it.
