Share This Post

Stainless steel is an extremely flexible metal that can be applied in numerous applications. It boasts outstanding corrosion resistance, weldability and formability properties.

Planning a project requires carefully considering which stainless steel product best meets your requirements, from choosing an alloy and finish, through to traits which could impact design or fabrication capabilities.

Sheet & Plate

Stainless steel sheets and plates are two products used in various applications. Both look similar, as both are produced through hot rolling.

However, sheets and plates vary significantly and it’s important to understand their differences so you can select the product most suited to your needs. Sheets typically measure less than 6mm thick and are commonly used for light residential and architectural applications while plates provide increased tensile strength and are used in heavy-duty applications.

Sheets can be an ideal material choice if you need something sturdy but lightweight for your next project. Sheets tend to be less costly than their plate counterparts and provide many different applications.

Additionally, these panels come with different finishes to meet your particular application. Some mirror finishes show off their shine while others can be brushed for a softer appearance and reduce fingerprints or smudges. Brushed finishes may even help minimize fingerprints or smudges!

Thicker products tend to provide greater strength; however, this also makes them more vulnerable to fabrication processes.

No matter what your fabrication needs are, selecting the appropriate metal gauge for your project is crucial to its success and budget. Picking out a wrong gauge could have serious repercussions that affect both sides of your equation.

Stainless steel is an excellent material to use in many different applications, from cost savings and maintenance savings to improving building aesthetics. Cleaning, disinfecting and storing it is easy; no rusting, staining or corrosion issues exist unlike carbon steel materials; moreover it resists various chemicals as well as being highly recyclable.

Round Bar

Stainless steel round bars are an increasingly popular choice in multiple industries. Thanks to its durability and corrosion-resistance, stainless steel round bar is often utilized in construction projects and machinery applications; additionally, its resistance against odors, bacteria and contaminants makes it suitable for food service and medical uses.

SS round bars come in random lengths and can be customized to meet specific design requirements. There is also a range of finishes to choose from such as mirror and brushed, which help minimize fingerprints and wear-and-tear.

Hardox(r) stainless steel round bar makes an excellent alternative to metal plate, eliminating costly and time-consuming welding procedures. Furthermore, this strong material makes an excellent choice for earthmoving or attachment applications due to its resistance against abrasion and penetration.

Molybdenum content of grade 316 stainless steel ensures added strength and resilience against corrosion in harsh environments, providing long-term durability in adverse situations.

These same properties that make it a top pick for industrial applications also make it an excellent option for automotive use, where its resistance to high temperatures and harsh chemicals makes it ideal for automotive, marine, transportation, and chemical industries.

Stainless steel is a long-lasting and corrosion-resistant alloy composed of at least 10.5% chromium that resists rusting and corrosion. This unique quality stems from when the chromium interacts with oxygen to form an oxide film that protects it against further rust formation, even in environments exposed to high amounts of humidity or moisture. Furthermore, its ability to withstand chlorine environments as well as alkaline solutions makes stainless steel ideal for many environments – even environments like those present in 400 series grades is remarkable!

Square Bar

Square bar stock is an extremely strong and flexible building material. At Industrial Metal Supply, we offer hot rolled and cold rolled square steel bar stock in various profiles and diameters for you to select for your project needs. Furthermore, our cut-to-length service ensures you will always get exactly the amount of steel bar needed.

Square Bar fencing and gates are popular choices as they combine security with an appealing aesthetic. Durable enough to withstand weather conditions and heavy loads, Square Bar can also be bent to fit your specific requirements and can even be cut in custom lengths to meet individual requirements.

Stainless Steel fencing and gates have long been a favorite choice due to its corrosion-resistance, strength, durability and ease of care. Its corrosion-resistance makes cleaning, disinfection and upkeep effortless – perfect for the modern lifestyle!

Not only are stainless steel bars widely used for fencing applications, they are also increasingly utilized as an essential material in manufacturing processes due to their ability to be easily welded and formed into any necessary metal components for machinery.

An expanded metal sheet can be used to construct steel girders for skyscraper supports, and then welded with a square bar to prevent fraying. Furthermore, burglar bars which protect homes against intruders may also use this technique with an expanded metal sheet as the substrate and square bars being added as reinforcement against harsh weather elements.

Selecting the ideal stainless steel plate, sheet, or bar for your project requires taking into account numerous considerations, including alloy selection, finishes preferences, and any traits that could impede its durability or performance. 300 series stainless steels tend to provide good all-round solutions in terms of cost and corrosion resistance – although more specific grades may also be suitable depending on your specifications.

Hexagonal Bar

Hexagonal bars are specifically designed to assist in deadlifts and barbell rows – two of the most frequently performed lower-body exercises. Their wide, neutral grip ensures proper form during lifting sessions while optimizing performance during lifts.

Hex bars feature knurling that digs into your palms or weightlifting gloves to provide you with a better grip during lifting. Some bars may feature subtle patterns while others boast more aggressive designs depending on your individual requirements.

Stainless steel hex bars are an increasingly popular choice in industrial applications due to their corrosion-resistance, strength and durability. Furthermore, these durable pieces can stand up well in extreme temperatures or chemical environments – making them the ideal material for use in harsh conditions.

There are various grades of stainless steel hex bars, including 304 and 316 grades. Both contain chromium and molybdenum that increase their strength and toughness for superior tensile strength and toughness.

stainless steel hex bars boast another key advantage over their alternatives: they will not rust or corrode when exposed to moisture, making them ideal for many industrial applications that entail contact with liquid sources or fluids such as water sources.

Hexagonal bars are composed of cold-drawn metal that provides a more uniform finish and tighter tolerances than hot rolled versions. Available in various diameters and lengths to meet any application, hexagonal bars come in many varieties to meet all your needs.

Hex bars make an excellent addition to your home gym setup, offering an array of exercises designed to target every part of your body while being gentle on joints. However, not every person finds them suitable – make sure that the bar you buy fits with your goals for optimal results!

Hollow Bar

6mm stainless steel plate is an excellent option for many different applications, from car manufacturing and aircraft transport, through chemical plants and pharmaceutical production, and into ship construction, military vehicle use and railway use.

Hollow bar fabrication involves several processes, such as drilling and centrifugal casting. The method chosen depends on your desired dimensional tolerance requirements as well as the material you plan on using during fabrication.

Drilling involves passing a drill through solid metal bar stock to remove excess material and create a hollow bar, creating precise dimensions with high accuracy for numerous critical applications.

Centrifugal casting is another process used for hollow bar development, consisting of rotating molds filled with liquid metal being poured at high speed while spinning at extremely fast speeds, producing dense and uniform hollow bars.

These properties make them an ideal anchor and pile system for geotechnical contractors, who use them as tie back anchors, rock anchors, soil nails and micropiles in many different challenging applications.

Hollow bars tend to feature tighter dimensional tolerances than tubing, making it easier for manufacturers to create higher quality products with hollow bars than tubing would allow.

Hollow bars can often be created more cost effectively and with reduced labor requirements than tubes; one reason they tend to be more cost effective.
