STAINLESS STEEL IS A NEW FASHION

Who say only women can wear jewelry? Stainless steel jewelry is the answers of it! Stainless steel jewelry is suitable for women and men. It is attractive, yet masculine.

Stainless steel in French “inoxydable” is an iron alloy with a minimum of 10.5% Chromium. It is best known as the material used to make objects that requires strength and safety like aircraft, automotive bodies, building support, or dentistry instruments. This metal product was discovered in 1913 by Harry Brearley, a Sheffield metallurgist when he was doing the experiment with different types of steel for weapons. He noticed that a 13% Chromium steel had not corroded after several months.

Traditional metal such as gold, silver, and platinum are probably being the first choice for people when they buy metal jewelry, but actually stainless steel has lots of benefits when it used as jewelry. Why?

First, it is versatile. Stainless steel jewelry is versatile. People wear jewelry to make them look more attractive or they buy it because they like to appreciate the beauty of the jewelry itself. Regardless of what the reasons are stainless steel jewelry can help you to fulfill those needs.

Second, it is a good material. Unlike gold and silver, stainless steel jewelry doesn’t need to be handled very carefully, because it is durable! You don’t need to polish very often because it is resistant to corrode.

Third, it is hypoalleregenic. If you are someone who has sensitive skin, stainless steel jewelry is the best choice for you. Traditional metal jewelries like gold, silver, and platinum can elicit allergic reactions because of the impurities in the metal itself, but stainless steel is different. It is hypoalleregenic and much less likely to provoke allergic reactions.

Last but not least, it is cheaper! Of course it is cheaper than gold, silver, or even platinum! Stainless steel jewelry is a big return on investment.

What Time is It?

Before you tell me the time, take a closer look at your watch; now tell me what you see. The answer is not really the time, but the metal your timepiece is made of-Stainless Steel. Since its discovery, stainless steel has been experimented on and used in many different ways. Although most are fairly obvious, some can still surprise us, in this case with our timepieces.

Timepieces have been around since the 16th century, with steel playing an important role with the assembly and inner-workings of a watch. It was not until the discovery of stainless steel in the early 1900’s that watches would take a new step into reliability and functionality. Previous to stainless steel, a watch was a very meticulous part of one’s attire, due to its prone to stain, chip, and wear and tear timepieces were but for the elite, the aristocrats and rarely for the common man. As the evolution of watches took its place in history, different types of metals began to take part in its design and usage. It was not until stainless steel was introduced that led to a dramatic change in what we wear today.

The introduction of stainless steel towards watches led to many more individuals having the availability to wear them, the reason why is its versatility. Stainless steel clasps, and links turned skeptical watch users into admirers and aficionados. The use of stainless steel helped those who suffered from allergic reactions to: leather, rubber and other metals, fear no more. Not only was it healthy for its user, but due to its removable clasps, more and more users would be able to wear a timepiece of their choosing. Stainless steel brought to the table an odorless, stainless, multipurpose, aesthetically pleasing factor to our now every day time piece.

The benefits of owning a stainless steel time piece are endless, with many even outliving the watch itself. Now the question is whether this timepiece from the 16th century that follows us everywhere we go will actually outlive the new sensation iWatch launched by Apple.

As Stainless Steel Industry Professional, Shanghai Metal Corporation takes pride in the manufacturing of those products which are used in our customer’s daily life such as stainless steel which our company manufactures and supplies at the highest quality and most affordable price.

Liquid Packaging Business That Prospered Without Angels

Shark Tank is an ABC reality show that has attracted millions of viewers worldwide. In Shark Tank entrepreneurs get a chance to pitch their business ideas to a group of venture capitalists and ask for some funding in exchange for a share of their companies. In most cases the entrepreneurs leave the tank with empty pockets, but there was one idea that the sharks would really have wanted.

Copa di Vino is an innovative way to pack wine into a glass. The company holds a utility patent for packing alcoholic beverages into a sealed glass-like plastic container. In other words, the company is the only one in the world who can pack wine in ready-to-drink glasses.

James Martin, the CEO of Copa di Vino went to the tank two times.  In the first time one of the angels Kevin O’Leary offered him a licensing deal including 600,000 dollars for 51 % stake in his utility patent . Martin refused the offer and left empty handed. In the second time he was given a two million dollar evaluation and an offer from O’Leary, Marc Cuban and Robert Herjavec.  That deal was never made and still, the entrepreneur has managed to sell over 15 million glasses and to reach a growth of over 1000 percent.

Liquid packing seems to be a field where businesses compete with patents and design. An example of a creative use of liquid packaging is given by a watch brand Festina. The company has packed its water resistant watches in a plastic bag of distilled water in order to demonstrate the quality of their watches. For details on the brand, please have a glimpse of our former blog on liquid packaging through this link.

Shanghai Metal Corporation is a reliable provider of automatic liquid packing machines. We also apply a high standard quality assurance and offer high-quality post-sales services.

Liquid Packaging Made Famous by a Watch Company

Do you own a water resistant watch? As consumers we are blessed able to select our watches from various brands such as Suunto, Tissot and Rolex to name but a few. These companies most probably use a service from a third-party QA provider who verifies the water resistance through an industry protocol. Today we do not have to be aware of the protocol, thanks to the Spanish  watch manufacturer Festina who has taken the marketing of water resistant watches to a next level.

The company demonstrates the quality convincingly by packing the product into a transparent plastic bag filled with distilled water. The Profundo is 42mm wide in steel and water resistant to 200 meters. The dive-style watch has a rotating diver’s bezel and comes in orange, yellow, blue, and black dial colors. Inside the watch is a Japanese Miyota quartz movement. The divers strap is either silicon, plastic, or rubber.

The Festina Group was founded on 1902 in Switzerland. It was bought by a Spaniard Miguel Rodríguez in 1984. Today five watch brands Calypso, Jaguar, Festina, Lotus and Candino as well as two jewelry brands Lotus Style and Lotus Silver work under the brand.

Like Festina’s watches, every product can be packed in liquid by using a liquid packing machine. In Shanghai Metal Corporation we also trade Automatic Liquid Packing Machines for industrial use.
