Stainless steel Sheets


Stainless steel sheet are  cut size sheets of stainless steel.Usually sheets are cut from coils . Sheets come in  various variety . There are different constraints related to stainless steel  .

Some constraints attached to stainless steel sheets:-

    1. Grade
      • Grades define the chemical composition of the product . There are different grades of stainless steel which effect the mechanical properties of stainless steel. Grades under stainless steel are divided into 3 main categories.Some commonly used  grades & different series are :-
          • 300 series  – 304 , 310, 316L ,321
          • 200 series – JT , J4 , SD, DD, 204CU , JSLAUS
          • 400 series  – 409,409M,409L,410,430,439,441
    2. Thickness
      • Sheets are manufactured  in wide range. Thickness range starts from 0.50 mm  and goes on after that . We keep in ready stock thickness up till 10 mm .  There are also some thickness tolorence . Thicker material has high tolorence where as thin material has less tolorence.
    3. Size
      • Sheets are being manufactured in several sizes. The most commonly used sizes are :- 1000mm x  2500mm, 1250 mm x 2500mm, 1500mm x 3000mm . However apart from these sizes customized sizes are also available depending upon the ordered quantity and availability of the material.We can cut the  different sizes from a coil to make customized sheets.
    4. Finish
      • There are different finishes of stainless steel. Finishes depends upon ones usage. Polished sheets and coils are used where  there is direct usage i.e. just cut and use , whereas in case of bending , joining ,  drawing  it is recommended to use unpolished material .
      • Name of different finishes are
            • 2B – basic unpolished
            • HR- hot rolled , have  a rough and unpolished finish
            • Hairline/ matt/ no.4 – the surface is polished . It has  matt finish  usually comes with a PVC coating to protect the finish from scratches
            • Mirror finish / no.8 – This surface is high gloss polished . It gives a reflection of mirror. It usually comes with a PVC coating of 0.70 micron or above.
