About Stainless Steel Usages

Stainless steel products are increasingly the material of choice for metal fabrication. We supply stainless steel products that are available in a wide variety of dimensions and grades and our metal fabricators are well trained and provide flawless stainless steel fabricated products. Our company will assist you in meeting all your stainless steel requirements.

Stainless Steel products are available in plate, sheet, and various other shapes. This can be bought as a Mill finish or can be polished to bright mirror finish depending on the application. The steel is manufactured with a low carbon content that makes it an ideal corrosion resistant product.

The two main types of stainless steel usually used are the 400 series and 300 series. The 300 series is mainly used in different applications like marine aerospace and any other areas which is directly exposed to different elements throughout the year. The 400 series stainless steel has properties which are corrosion resistant and is mainly ideal for interior decorative, architectural and appliances.

FAQs

Stainless steel is an alloy of chromium and iron, known for being highly resistant to corrosion and heat. It must contain 10.5% of chromium to be considered stainless steel, but other metals can be added to enhance the properties of this alloy. Its appealing look and durability make stainless steel a popular choice for various industries.

  • Austenitic stainless steel contains high levels of chromium. The alloy is corrosion-resistant and durable.
  • Ferritic stainless steel contains low levels of nickel and low carbon consistency and has magnetic properties. Some of its advantages are cost-effectiveness and durability.
  • Duplex stainless steel combines ferritic and austenitic, featuring enhanced durability.
  • Martensitic stainless steel comes with higher carbon content and is less commonly used when compared to the other types. In some industries, it gets a protective coating layer to prevent corrosion.

Stainless steel is an alloy that contains a minimum of 10.5% of chromium. On the other hand, galvanized steel is steel with a zinc coating to make it corrosion-resistant. However, the protective zinc layer can wear off. Stainless steel is stronger and more resistant to rust but is more expensive than galvanized steel.

Stainless steel makes its way into many industries:

  • Construction. Stainless steel is used in cladding but can be used in interiors as a decorative finish. It can be easily welded, has an attractive look, and is corrosion-resistant.
  • Transportation. The use of this alloy is favored in creating car parts, road tankers, ship containers, buses, trucks, railway cars, and aircraft.
  • Medical. Since stainless steel is prone to corrosion, you can easily sterilize it for medical purposes.
  • Energy industry. Stainless steel is resistant to toxic substances and is used for producing tanks, pipes, and valves.
  • Food. The easy cleaning process makes this alloy ideal for kitchen accessories and appliances.

Fabrication of stainless steel refers to creating a final product or a component that will be used in construction and assembly. The alloy is quite malleable and elastic, so the process includes various techniques such as cutting, burning, bending, forming, welding, and assembling.

Stainless steel can be challenging to work with. However, having the right equipment will help. The different types of stainless styles come with different workability. It can be cut with the standard methods such as laser, plasma, waterjet, hand sawing, abrasive disc cutting, etc.

Compared to other metals such as aluminum, stainless steel is difficult to work with. The sturdiness of steel will generate heat when machining, which will result in decreased tool lifespan. Therefore, machining stainless steel requires complex methods that end up costing more.

Stainless steel won’t weaken when bent cold. Due to its sturdiness, steel is known to be difficult to bend. Carbon steel is an ideal choice for bending since it is flexible.

  • Laser cutting is the best method for cutting stainless steel. The result is clean and precise lines that you can’t replicate with any other method.
  • Plasma is suitable for thicker pieces of stainless steel and is cost-efficient. However, it doesn’t come with clean lines.
  • Waterjet is commonly used to cut stainless steel and doesn’t require finishing.
  • Saw cutting results in a clean-cut but has limits regarding the steel thickness

Yes, stainless steel can be milled. It comes in four types with different machinability: austenitic, ferritic, duplex, and martensitic. Therefore, the method used will depend on the type you work with.
