We have worked through and cleared the back-log of slow mail and outgoing email should be flowing normally now.
However you may experience some email ‘bounce-backs’ as some of our outgoing mail is still being detected as spam which was caused by the high levels of spam going through our server in the last couple of days.
The mail going through our server should be trusted as legitimate mail within the next 24 to 48 hours as the servers around the world which are receiving mail from our clients re-align their trusted email settings.

Online interactive brochures are very popular nowadays and are common place on some national chain store websites selling clothes as they enable viewers to easily browse product catalogues or pricelist with a click of a mouse and also allow zooming in and out of documents.
To see an example interactive page-turn brochure click the image to the right >>
If you have a company brochure which you would like to present on your website, you could either add it as a PDF file which would make it viewable online as a paginated document or you may want to present as an interactive document where people can turn pages with movement of a computer mouse. As the pages turn they animate and create a shadow on the pages below to give an impression of a real page turning.
Adding your company brochure to your website can enhance your visitors user experience and may even promote additional sales enquiries.

Prochem are a manufacturer of powerful floor cleaners which speed up the process of cleaning floor surfaces by using an extremely quick flow of air to dry the area underneath while cleaning takes place.
Their reputation has steadily grown over the last 35 years and now they are renowned for the build quality and effectiveness of their machines. Prochem machines are ideal for high traffic areas which need to be used immediately after cleaning. They also aid the operator by providing drive in either forwards or reverse which eliminates the effort required to move these machines and allows the machine to clean around corners and tight spaces with ease.
Janitorial Direct support their range of Prochem Machines with a range of accessories and spares to make then as versatile as possible and ensure they keep working in peak condition for as long as possible.
The Galaxy Prochem Machines are portable, heavy duty cleaners for use on carpets, rugs and upholstery. The compact size of this machine, combined with the hose and attachments make it an ideal tool for valeting cars and spot cleaning. It is so effective for its size it can even be used for smaller commercial cleaning tasks such as showrooms or shop floors.
This range of Prochem machines is slightly larger and is intended for use on long corridors and open floor spaces. These machines are capable of thoroughly cleaning up to 300 metres squared per hour. As the machine moves along the area underneath is treated with a cleaning solution and vacuumed dry. For more restricted areas these machines can make use of optional hand tools for detailed cleaning in corners and around furniture and fittings.
The Supernova range of Prochem machines are even larger than the Polaris range and are capable of cleaning up to 370 metres squared of floor space in a single hour.

Stainless steel stockholders are companies which have large warehouse storage space and have a client base who regularly order high volumes of stainless steel bar, blanks & billets. Other stainless steel products which stockholders offer are things such as steel rounds, sheet and wire.
Stainless Steel Stockholder Services
Some steel stockholders offer other associated machining services as well as the supply of bulk steel products such as steel sawing, shearing, profiling, special fabrication and stainless steel drilling. These processes help industry to speed up production lines as they can work faster is they are able to order in stainless steel parts which can be adding to their manufacturing process without any additional finishing.

The manufacture of stainless steel bar products along with other stainless steel mass produced products such as stainless steel flats, sheet and wire are produced within a blast furnace. Within the furnace, carbon electrodes are aligned to make contact with varying amounts nickel, nitrogen and molybdenum at a very high temperature.
Once the steel making furnace reaches the optimum melting point the different metal alloys in the mix fuse to create one metal alloy. Then the alloy is fed into an argon vessel where de-carbonization takes place, once within the vessel, forging or casting can begin. This is when different shapes and forms are created for a variety of market sectors. Shapes such as round, flats, bar, sheet and steel wire are easy mass produced using this technique and as its very malleable, it can then be moulded into a variety of shapes including stainless steel bar.

The composition of stainless steel bar is a blend of alloys of several metals with at least 10% chromium. Chromium has a high polish, high melting point and is known as a hard metal which is also odourless, tasteless and is easily manipulated into other shapes or forms making stainless steel bar easy to re-form into different bar products.
Stainless steel bar is stainless because of Its chromium content as the chromium oxide forms a thin layer on the ’skin’ of the steel which is un-detectable by the naked eye. This thin layer of chromium self heals when scratched and is flexible if the stainless steel is stretched. The re-healing properties of chromium are only active when in contact with oxygen gas, so if stainless steel bar products are in use in a non-oxygenated environment such as a marine environment then corrosion may occur more easily.
Other alloys which make up stainless steel bar are metals such as varying amounts of nickel, nitrogen and molybdenum, which affect its durability.

Basically stainless steel bar is steel which is alloyed or blended with non-corrosive or low corrosive metals and then mass produced in refineries in bars which are then cut to order for a range of manufacturing and industrial applications. These steel bars are called lengths of bar which are easy to transport on flat-bed lorries for easy distribution. Stainless steel bar can alternatively be forged into custom lengths for special fabrications.
Stainless Steel Bar Shapes
Stainless steel bar can be produced in a variety of different shapes and ideal for the manufacture of all kinds of products from cutlery, saucepans and also work-surfaces and even watch straps.
Stainless steel bar is as its name suggests is steel which has been produced specifically not to stain, corrode or rust as easily as standard steel. Stainless steel bar is also referred to as Corrosion-Resistant Steel in some industries where the mix of metal alloys is not detailed such as aviation industry.
There are many different types of stainless steel bar as there are different applications for it in manufacturing and each require different finishes. These types range from polished, reflective finish as used by stainless steel kitchen utensil producers. Stainless steel bar can be finished with many different surface textures and qualities; such as coarse, brushed, matte and even a mirrored finish can be achieved.
