Stainless steel plate comes in a variety of thicknesses and tolerances. Stainless 304 & 304L stainless steel plate is often used in stamped and machined parts for processing equipment while 316 & 316L stainless steel plate are employed by the chemical, marine and power transmission industries.
All grades stainless steel grades exhibit high levels of corrosion resistance. ‘Dry corrosion’ can occur to steel at higher temperatures where it oxidizes. Stainless steel is more resistant to this than other steels, with specific grades like 310 (25% chromium 20% nickel) developed for use at high temperatures. Other characteristics and properties depend on the ‘family’ of stainless steel.
Common grades of stainless steel plate (304 and 316) fall under the Austenitic family. These grades exhibit high levels of corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, and good formability. Chromium, nickel, and iron are the primary alloying elements in austenitic stainless steel.
Highly resistant to corrosion and aesthetically pleasing, stainless steel is used in a wide variety of industries for various applications. Popular Applications for stainless steel plate include processing equipment, chemical, marine, power transmission.
Popular Grades of stainless steel plate include 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 304H, 409, 201LN, 2205
