Stainless steel is an alloy of Iron with a minimum of 10.5% Chromium. Chromium produces a thin layer of oxide on the surface of the steel known as the’passive layer’. This prevents any further corrosion of the surface. Increasing the amount of Chromium gives an increased resistance to corrosion.Stainless steel also contains
varying amounts of Carbon, Silicon and Manganese. Other elements such as Nickel and Molybdenum may be added to impart other useful properties such as enhanced formability and increased corrosion resistance.
Aakash Steel stocks a wide range of stainless steel plate in 304/304L Plate , 304 straight grade, 316/316L Plate , 321 Plate, 317L Plate, 310 Plate, 347 Plate, 904L Plate. These grades are part of the austenitic family of stainless. Austenitic stainless steel is one of the most widely used and versatile type of steel. While 304L stainless steel plate have excellent corrosion resistance, 316/316L plates have higher nickel content than 304 and 304L giving them even better corrosion resistance especially in marine applications. Type 321 ss plates are a good choice for applications where heat is an issue. 321 can be used in applications up to 900 degrees Celsius where 304L is normally used up to 500 degrees Celsius.
Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
Is stainless steel plate good?
Stainless steel plates are hardy and hassle-free to use on a regular basis. The product (stainless steel) is simple to use, simple to clean and doesn’t affect the food we eat.
What is a stainless steel plate?
In essence, stainless steel is a low-carbon steel that includes at least 10% weight of chromium. The steel’s special stainless, corrosion-resisting qualities are a result of this chromium addition.
How strong is stainless steel plate?
If not done by experts in the area, bending stainless tubing might be challenging. Both rotary and hydraulic press bending techniques may be used to bend stainless steel tubes.
Does stainless steel bend easily?
4,877 pounds per linear foot may be supported without breaking by a 4″ hubless cast iron earth pipe. Cast iron pipes are also stiff; very little wall deflection occurs.
Does stainless steel break easily?
You need a sharp drill and enough energy to maintain that drill cutting; don’t let the drill rub or the 304 will harden and become very challenging to cut. Due to its austenitic structure, which makes it highly resistant and allows for usage at cryogenic temperatures where mild steel is brittle and susceptible to breaking,
