Why are you selling the Anti-Spill Wine Glasses and the Magnetic Stainless Steel Board separately
Depending on your utilization you may want to purchase more Boards and Glasses. You may purchase multiple boards so your guests can put their drinks anywhere they want. We give you the liberty to choose the combination you desire.
Are your glasses lead free
What is the SON.hyx technology
SON.hyx technology from Luigi Bormioli has made the world of wine glasses both high quality and durable. Due to these improved processes the surface of the glass does not have any weak points thus reducing the glass fragility and improving its mechanical resistance. The Son.hyx material provides stronger resistance of the rim, resistance to impact, and resistance to twisting stems.
Usually stainless steel is not magnetic
They are different types of Stainless steel, we are using the ferritic Stainless steel (430) that is Magnetic.
If i have a stainless steel table on my boat can i use the anti-spill wine glasses
If your table is made of ferritic Stainless steel (Magnetic), then yes.
If you do not know what kind of Stainless Steel your table is built with, you can do an easy test: take any magnet and see if the magnet stick to your table, if yes then you do not need to purchase the board. If the magnet does not stick then you will need the Magnetic Stainless Steel Board.
Also, lots of our clients like the mobility of our Magnetic Stainless Steel Board, that is something to think about.
Will the magnetic stainless steel board rust
Rust can (and frequently does) occur on stainless alloys as the result of surface contamination.
Among the many sources of contamination, the following are the leading offenders:
- The accumulation of the natural corrosion products of the alloy in corrosive service on a rough surface may cause a brown stain due to oxidation.*
- Discoloration may be caused by the accumulation of any extraneous processing material which is of such a nature as to cause a “rusty” appearance on a rough surface.*
It is the inherent resistances of the alloy that counts and “rust” conditions such as those described are relatively harmless. They are the results of surface contamination and in no way reflect the composition of the alloy.
The good news is, with a little cleaning and care the chromium oxide layer is self-healing.
You can use a soft Scotch Brite scour pad ...or if using baking soda and water, use a cloth or soft bristle brush, rub the baking soda in the direction of the grain. This may take a little effort but this will remove these soils. When cleaned, rinse with clean water on a clean soft cloth. Next, you can apply a Stainless Cleaner!
How to clean the magnetic stainless steel board
What you’ll need: A wet and dry J-cloth or rag, dish soap and water.
- Dampen your cloth. Wring it out so there is little to no excess water.
- Add a drop of dish soap to your cloth. You don’t want to use too much! The cloth shouldn’t be dripping with suds.
- Wipe the Stainless Steel Board in the direction of the grain. Move the cloth horizontally along the board in one long streak, before moving to the next section underneath, careful to not miss any spots.
- Rinse and wipe again. Once all the suds are rinsed from your cloth, wring it out and wipe the soap off the board in the same direction you cleaned it. Tip: Make sure you wring out all excess water before cleaning off the soap. You don’t want your cloth sopping wet for this step as it will only leave water droplets on your board.
- Use your dry cloth to buff the board surface. Again, make sure you are moving the cloth in the direction of the grain. This step really makes the stainless steel shine.
You can use a commercial Stainless Steel Cleaner:
Remove all food and water deposits from the surface with a microfibre cloth or soft sponge. Then go over with a stainless steel cleaner to ensure all dried on stains are removed. Be sure to choose a cleaner with alkaline and without chloride in it.
TIP: Deposits left on stainless steel will work to corrode it, causing rust and damaging the surface, so it’s best practice to clean your board after every use.
