Stainless steel SMO254: Excellent corrosion resistance and hardness. The material meets food hygiene standard requirements and it is especially suitable for manufacturing ice cream molds. The material also greatly extends the working lifetime of the finished product.

Stainless steel 904L: With good corrosion resistance and hardness, it can guarantee a long service life of the products. It is also suitable under food hygiene standard requirements, making it perfect for ice cream molding machines.

Stainless steel 316L: With good toughness, a certain degree of corrosion resistance and hardness, it can ensure the service life of the products to a certain extent and meets Food Hygiene Standards. This material is generally used to manufacture ice cream molds for linear ice cream molding machines.

Stainless steel 304: The material is in line with food hygiene standards, but the corrosion resistance is only suitable for the production of ice cream molds for manual or linear ice cream molding machines.
