Stainless Steel Round Bar


When you need corrosion-resistant metal for your fasteners or machinery, stainless steel bar provides the strength and machinability necessary for your industrial construction and manufacturing projects. Machined parts that require a high strength-to-weight ratio benefit from stainless steel round bar, in addition to its resistance to atmospheric environments.

Stainless Steel Alloys

Our inventory of stainless steel bar products includes 303 stainless steel bar, 304 stainless steel bar, and 316 stainless steel bar. For more detailed information, check out our stainless steel guide.
  • Stainless steel can be used for environments or applications that require chlorine or alkaline exposure
  • Stainless steel can withstand highly acidic environments 
Round bar is used for a wide range of industrial uses, including structural applications as well as industrial shafts.

303 Stainless Steel Round Bar

Ideal for automated machining applications, 303 stainless steel round bar is available with an annealed cold finish. Known for its machinability, the inclusion of sulfur lowers the corrosion resistance when compared to other stainless steel grades. 
  • Used for machining applications

304 Stainless Steel Round Bar

As a versatile stainless steel alloy, 304 stainless steel round bar is used widely for commercial and industrial applications. Easily weldable and fabricated, it also offers good corrosion resistance. 304 SS is a heat-resistant alloy with good formability. 
  • Ideal for heavy gauge parts or components

316 Stainless Steel Round Bar

With a higher molybdenum content than alloy 304, 316 stainless steel round bar is well suited for highly corrosive environments such as marine or outdoor applications. Easily formable and weldable, 316 stainless steel round bar is suitable for chemical processing and food prep equipment.
  • Suitable for medical instruments due to its hygienic and non-reactive properties

Applications for SS Round Bar

Stainless steel round bar can also be used for the following applications:
  • Railings
  • Beams
  • Handles
  • Braces
  • Shafts
  • Fasteners
While your application requirements will determine which metal is best suited for your needs, stainless steel round bar is often a great substitute for carbon steel. It offers better corrosion resistance and surface finishes.

Finishing Options

Common stainless steel finishing options include:
  • Mill Finish (2B)
    • Cold rolled finish
    • General purpose finish
  • Brushed
    • Options of 120 grit and 150 grit
    • Polished finish
  • Mirror
    • Reflective and high polish
  • Bright Annealed
    • Mirror-like finish with high reflective properties
