Stainless Steel Bar

Upgrade your project’s durability with stainless steel bar types

Stainless Steel Bar Types - Low maintenance, High-Reward Investment

The stainless steel round bar has excellent characteristics allowing it to be widely useful in various applications.

Stainless steel bar types are known for their excellent resistance to corrosion and oxidation, resulting in a smooth surface finish. It is worth noting that the chromium content in stainless steel rods, which is about 12%, contributes significantly to their corrosion resistance. However, chromium also improves the ductility, hardness, high strength, workability, and formability of stainless steel.

In addition, stainless steel rods are low-cost as they are 100% recyclable and recoverable. As a result, many industries take advantage of this and use stainless steel round bar stock that is transformed into hot-rolled bars, cold-rolled bars, cold-rolled steel bars, or precision-ground steel bars in almost all areas of their businesses.

Stainless steel round bar stock can be used in various applications, which is why it undergoes various metalworking operations such as centerless grinding, saw cutting, turning, and more. Advance Grinding Services understands the demand for supplies of stainless steel round bars from a wide range of industries. This is why we always strive to provide high-quality bars intended for various applications.

Stainless Steel ROUND Bars

Stainless Steel Round Bar Stock

Stainless steel bar types are an excellent choice when it comes to durability and reliability. They are highly resistant to corrosion, rust, and staining, making them ideal for use in harsh environments and outdoor applications. Stainless steels also have excellent strength and flexibility, which allows them to withstand heavy loads and stress. 

They are versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications. They come in various sizes, shapes, and grades, which allows them to be customized for specific project needs. This flexibility, combined with their durability and reliability, makes then a popular choice in many industries.

Stainless steel bar stocks are also a great option for those looking for a sustainable solution. They are 100% recyclable, which reduces waste and conserves natural resources. Their long lifespan also means that they require fewer replacements, reducing the overall environmental impact.

In addition to their durability and sustainability, stainless steel rods have an attractive and modern appearance, making them a popular choice for architectural and decorative applications. They can be polished to a high shine or given a brushed finish for a more subtle look. This aesthetic appeal, combined with their strength and reliability, makes stainless steel a versatile and practical choice for a wide range of projects.

Stainless Steel Grades

Stainless steel rods are available in a variety of grades, each with unique properties and applications. The choice of stainless steel rod grade depends on the specific needs of the project.

The most commonly used stainless steel grade for rods is 304, which offers excellent corrosion resistance and is suitable for use in various applications such as construction, food processing, and medical equipment. For applications in marine environments or exposure to corrosive substances like saltwater, 316 stainless steel rods are preferred as it offers higher corrosion resistance. 

Meanwhile, 410 stainless steel rods are commonly used in manufacturing fasteners, valves, and pump parts for its good corrosion resistance and high strength. 

416 stainless steel rods are ideal for applications that require high machinability and corrosion resistance. 

For high-wear applications such as knife blades and bearings, 440C stainless steel types are preferred for its high strength and hardness. Lastly, 17-4 PH stainless steel rods are commonly used in aerospace, chemical, and petrochemical industries for its excellent corrosion resistance. 

It is important to consider factors such as corrosion resistance, strength, and machinability when selecting a stainless steel rod grade, and consulting with a knowledgeable supplier or engineer can ensure the appropriate grade is selected for the project.

Below is a list of the grades of Stainless Steel that Advance Grinding offers.
