Common Uses for Stainless Steel Flat Bar

Stainless steel flat bar (or rectangular bar) is widely used across a variety of industries and is useful in a wide range of industrial applications. Due to its natural resistance to corrosion, as well as its strength and durability, the stainless steel flat bar is ideal for use in many different environments.

Some of the most common uses for stainless steel flat bars are in structural applications, food service equipment, handrails, marine components, industrial artwork and medical device components.

The Benefits of Stainless Steel Flat Bar

With its unique set of properties, the stainless steel flat bar is the ideal material for the applications mentioned above. Here are just a few of the benefits that make it such a popular choice:

Resistance to Corrosion: One of the most remarkable properties of stainless steel flat bars is chromium which gives it its distinctive lustrous silver finish. This passive layer protects the steel from corrosion and oxidation, making it an ideal choice for use in environments where corrosion is a concern.

Strength and Durability: The high strength-to-weight ratio of the stainless steel flat bar makes it ideal for use in structural applications where a lighter-weight material is required. Additionally, the durability of the flat bar means that it will withstand heavy use and wear and tear over time.

Low Maintenance: The flat bar is also easy to clean and maintain, as it does not require any special cleaning or maintenance products. Simply wiping it down with a damp cloth is usually enough to keep it looking like new.

Formability: They excel in this category, specifically the 304 and 316 grades which can easily be cut, welded, and drilled, making it easier for fabricators to work with.

Types of Stainless Steel Flat Bar Grades Available

The 304 grade is the most versatile and widely used, as it can be easily formed and fabricated.

The 316 grade is also a good choice for applications where durability is required, as it has a higher resistance to corrosion.

The 316Ti grade is a good choice for high-temperature applications, as it has a higher melting point than the 304 and 316 grades. It also has improved resistance to pitting chloride ion solutions making it ideal for use in chemical processing and marine environments.
