Our product line consists of three of the most common stainless steel alloys used today.

They are Type 304, Type 316, and Type 430. Here is a brief description of each along with some common applications.

T304 – The most widely utilized alloy of the stainless steel family classified as an austenitic alloy. Non-magnetic. Also available with low carbon (LC) as well as draw quality (DDQ and EDDQ). Common uses include:

  • Food and beverage production
  • Medical Equipment
  • Commercial Kitchens
  • Brewers/Vintners
  • Air Conditioning
  • Tank Fabrication
  • Automotive

    T316/316L - Used in applications when a higher level of corrosion resistance is desired or required such as:

  • Chemical/Chemistry
  • Pulp and Paper Production
  • Marine Applications

    T430 – Less corrosion resistant than the 300 series but has favorable heat properties. Many common uses include:

  • Automobile and truck trim
  • Barbeques and Kitchen Equipment
  • Tubing
  • Architectural/Decorative
  • Door Hardware

    We carry these alloys in a wide range of thicknesses and finishes and we can provide material to you in industry standard or custom sizes depending on your specific needs.

    ¼” Plate
    7ga - .1874 +/- .007
    8ga - .167 +/- .007
    10ga - .135 +/- .005
    11ga - .120 +/- .005
    12ga - .105 +/-.005
    13ga - .090 +/- .004
    14ga - .075 +/- .004
    16ga - .060 +/- .003
    18ga - .048 +/- .003
    20ga - .036 +/- .002
    22ga - .030 +/- .002
    24ga - .024 +/- .0015
    26ga - .018 +/- .0015

    Finishes Available – Dependent on Alloy and Thickness

    Hot Rolled – Annealed and descaled

  • 2D – A dull, cold rolled finish. Common on draw quality material.
  • 2B – A brighter cold rolled finish. Most common and is more readily polished than 2D or HR.
  • #4 – A general purpose finish commonly used in restaurant equipment. 120 - 180 grit finish.
  • #8 non-directional – Also called super 8 or #10.This is a highly and progressively finer polished finish that eliminates all grit lines. Mirror- like.

    We carry most gauges in standard widths of 36”, 48” and 60”, and have floor stock for the standard lengths of 96” ,120” and 144”. Custom widths and lengths can also be produced in house.
