Stainless Steel Sheet
Everything including the kitchen sink
As the name suggests, this long-term favourite of the metal world is resistant to rusting, corrosion and (you guessed it) staining. It gained its title around the time it was invented, at the beginning of the 20th century. Back then, one of the most common uses for the metal was the production of cutlery, where hygiene was (and still is) obviously a must. These days, stainless steel is used for all manner of varying needs, but the name has stood the test of time (and it is still the most popular metal for making cutlery). Unlike the carbon steel (also known as mild steel) used as a basis for many metals, stainless steel has a minimum of 10.5% of chromium content by mass – and often contains up to 20%. Our stainless steel sheet comes in a huge range of thicknesses to suit your project and we offer two types: 304 stainless steel sheet and 316 stainless steel sheet. Prices are competitive and we have lots of options. Choose the size you need, or take advantage of our free cutting service and have it trimmed down to precisely the amount that’s right for you. There’s also a choice of two finishes: dull polished or mill finished. Mill finished steel doesn’t have the “brushed” effect that’s commonly associated with this type of metal. If that’s what you’re looking for, select dull polished stainless steel sheet from the box above; this metal has been specially treated to give it the fine-line, satin-textured pattern that can often be seen on jewellery, domestic appliances and watches.
Good for: Industrial equipment, hardware, catering machinery and furniture, food processing, cookware, cutlery, crockery, household uses, surgical instruments, construction materials, tools, shipbuilding, manufacturing and many more. Brushed stainless steel sheet (or dull-polished) is popular for household sockets, sink splash-backs and other stylish features.
How it’s made: Steel is one of the most refined metals that can be taken from iron. It’s also 100% recyclable; experts reckon that in the future, the vast majority of the steel products we use will be manufactured from recycled steel items. Stainless steel is an alloy, which is a mixture of more than one metal. It is blended with at least 10.5% chromium (also known as chrome), which gives it tough protection against oxidisation (rust).
