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 AlloysOur 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
303 Stainless Steel Round BarIdeal 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 BarAs 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 BarWith 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 BarStainless steel round bar can also be used for the following applications:
