Stainless Steel Sheet / Plate

Stainless steel sheet/plate is versatile and used in a variety of applications. It is primarily selected for its resistance to corrosion, longevity and formability.

Typical uses of stainless steel sheet/plate include, construction, food service applications, transportation, chemical, marine, and textile industries.


Our stainless steel sheet/plate is available in 300, 400 and 200 series. Each type has its own charac­te­ristics. The most popular grades are, 304 which can be easily roll-formed or shaped and due to its excellent corrosion resistance and weldability, it is one of the most popular grades available. 316 is an alloy that contains molybdenum which increases the corrosion resistance and is particularly effective in acidic environments as it provides a greater resistance to pitting corrosion. 321 is a variation of 304 with the addition of titanium, it is resistant to intergranular corrosion and has excellent weldability. Type 430 is a ferritic stainless steel alloy which offers good corrosion resistance and is predominately used in the domestic and catering industries.

We also offer sheet/plate in Aluzinc and aluminium if required.
