Thanks to its strength, durability, and corrosion resistance, 304 stainless steel square tubing is ideal for use in outdoor environments and other challenging applications. All stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass, and this element imparts natural anti-corrosion properties that allow stainless tube to be used with harsh or acidic chemicals, fresh water, and salt water—elements that would quickly corrode standard carbon steel materials.
304 Stainless Steel Square Tube304 stainless steel square tube is a versatile choice for a more lightweight means of structural support. Its strength and workability makes 304 SS square tubing best suited for structural applications where extreme pressure is not involved or for internal applications where aesthetic appearance is not important. It also has excellent weight-bearing properties, high corrosion resistance, superior durability, high strength-to-weight ratio, fair resistance to thermal and electrical conductivity and more.
