The Metals Factory is a full line processor and service center for stainless steel plates. We can supply stainless steel plates in a wide dimension range and any steel grade as per ASTM A240 manufacturing specification. We maintain extensive inventory of stainless steel plates in thickness range of 3mm to 100mm to meet the immediate purchase requirements of our customers. Stainless steel plates are normally available in hot rolled form (3mm to 100mm), in width of 1250/1500/2000 and 2500mm. Stainless steel plate can be a hot rolled or a cold rolled stainless steel product. Hot rolled plate has a dull gray, mill finish and cold rolled has a smooth, brighter finish. It can be sourced from coil in gauges from 3/16” thru ½”, and widths up to 72” wide. Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is this addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion-resisting properties.
The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel, and nitrogen. Stainless steel sheet & plate is often referred to as corrosion-resistant steel since it does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as regular carbon steel. Stainless steel sheet & plate is the perfect is the perfect solution for applications that require the metal to have anti-oxidation qualities.
