they made for me various size trays of High density Polyethylene.  they are white, tough, chemically nearly inert,  and I have been using them for several years and love them.  they are a fraction of the cost of S/S.  he can make a sink out of it as well.
At The Folger we have had S/S sinks for years but recently have had even S/S 316 (kitchen grade  not lab grade) S/S  sinks have rust spots.  The HDPE  trays are rigid, and chemically inert (only a few exotic acids will attack it).

Please excuse any cross-posting

Does anyone have recommendations for a source of large, shallow,
stainless steel sinks for paper washing?  I would also appreciate any
advice as to what to look for.

Thank you,
