201 304 316 409 430 310 ss plate are ideal for applications where sanitation is critical or where there is a constant risk of corrosion. Stainless steel does not rust, so it does not need protecting from moisture or chemicals in its immediate vicinity. It will not need painting or finishing, and does not easily discolor over time. It is easy to clean and does not tend to pick up odors.
We will introduce them exactly:
·Austenitic, 200 series — Combined with the 300 series, this alloy comprises over 70% of stainless steel manufacturing. A blend of carbon, chromium, nickel, and/or manganese, this steel can be hardened through cold working but is weaker in corrosion resistance.
·Austenitic, 300 series — The most widely used austenite steel is grade 304, also known as A2 stainless or 18/8 for its 18% chromium and 8% nickel content. 316, the second most common grade, qualifies as marine grade and can commonly be found in high quality cookware and cutlery.
·Ferritic,400 series — This stainless steel metal sheet has superior engineering properties but reduced corrosion as compared to austenitic alloys. Lower chromium and nickel content, as well as the occasional inclusion of lead, make it less costly. Some can be enhanced with aluminum or titanium, as well.
