Stainless Steel Bars Flats ASTM A582-A479-A564

Stainless bar is well suited for structural applications where strength, toughness and excellent corrosion resistance is required. In addition, some alloys provide high temperature resistance. It is easy to fabricate, machine, stamp and weld. Stainless bar can have a dull gray mill finish or smooth machined finish. It is used in applications throughout industry that are exposed to salt water, chemical, acidic or extreme high or low temperatures.

Below you will find a comprehensive chart detailing each grade, their applications and size range stocked for FLAT shaped bars.

Description: 304 / 304L stainless steel bar is easy to machine and stamp and can be welded. It exhibits high strength and toughness, high corrosion resistance and a smooth surface that is easily cleaned and sanitized. 304L has reduced weldability due to an increased level of carbon in the alloy. 304 stainless bar is used for components and parts in highly corrosive, high temperature and sanitary environments. It is an economic, high performing material.
Application: 304 / 304L bar is used to manufacture: Structural supports, braces, and framework for tanks, equipment and machinery; Supports for housings, enclosures and cabinets; Shafts and rods for axles in motors and engines; Engines and motor components; Components for food processing equipment and medical devices.
