For most people, there is no difference between stainless steel sheet and stainless steel sheet, but in fact they are still very different, their thickness and durability are very different.
Stainless steel sheets are thinner, usually less than 6mm, and are used in light-weight residential and construction applications or applications that do not require that high durability.
The thickness of SS plate is 6mm or more, which can provide the tensile strength and durability required for storage tanks and other heavy-duty applications. You can quickly determine the difference by looking at the gauge: the higher the gauge, the thinner the metal.
Stainless steel sheets commonly used 304 and 316 stainless steel can provide durability and corrosion resistance for indoor and outdoor applications.
Grade 304 stainless steel has a high nickel and chromium content and excellent corrosion resistance. Stainless steel 304 is also non-magnetic, has excellent formability, and is easy to manufacture, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of lightweight and general-purpose applications.
Grade 316 stainless steel also has a higher nickel and chromium content, but the addition of molybdenum further improves the corrosion resistance, especially the resistance to chloride or chloride. These characteristics make 316 stainless steel sheets and plates ideal for medical applications, marine environments, refining or chemical processing, and other highly corrosive environments.
Application of stainless steel sheet
Stainless steel plates and SS plates provide low-maintenance, corrosion-resistant solutions for various industrial applications. Some typical uses of stainless steel include:
Food processing and handling
Oil storage tank
Chemical process container
Marine parts and equipment
