Stainless Steel Coil Stock

Stainless steel is notable for its corrosion resistance, and it is widely used for food handling and cutlery among many other applications.  Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does.  However, it is not fully stain-proof in low-oxygen, high-salinity, or poor air-circulation environments.  There are various grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure.  Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required.  Its resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and familiar lustre make it an ideal material for many applications.  The alloy is milled into coils and sheets to be used in cookware, cutlery, household hardware, surgical instruments, major appliances, industrial equipment (for example, in sugar refineries) and as an automotive and aerospace structural alloy and construction material in large buildings. Storage tanks and tankers used to transport orange juice and other food are often made of stainless steel, because of its corrosion resistance. This also influences its use in commercial kitchens and food processing plants, as it can be steam-cleaned and sterilized and does not need paint or other surface finishes.

  • Camber is to be determined by placing an 8ft. straight edge against the concave edge of the strip.
  • Camber is the greatest deviation of the side edge from a straight line; the measurement being taken on the concave side with a straight edge.
