I have been using the moly spray listed below for engraving on stainless steel and have had much success. My next project I will be using this to engrave on a stainless steel utensil and I was wondering after engraving on this could the user still add to dishwasher, and or clean this utensil normally without having issues of the material peeling or coming off. Anyone have any experience with this?
Your best bet would be a torture test. Mark some stainless, put it in the dishwasher. Leave it there for a few weeks. Let us know what happens!
From scratching around on it, that oxide deposit is very tough. I would be surprised if you saw any change at all.
