Flat bars have an incredibly wide range of uses. The characteristics of stainless steel bars are particularly useful for structural purposes. Steel flat bars are commonly found in the construction industry and work exceptionally well as building support material.
Grade 304 is one of the world's most recognised for steel products. Think sinks and saucepans and you'll be familiar with this material. More corrosion resistant than regular steel, this grade flat bar is long-lasting in many different environments. It has excellent formability and weldability.
Grade 316 stainless steel bars contains an additional element of molybdenum for an improved corrosion resistance in chloride environments often referred to as the 'marine grade'. The structure of 316 stainless steel gives excellent toughness. This combination of toughness and resistance lends well to coastal balustrading, boat fitting, brewery equipment and more.

How to polish stainless steel?
Stainless steel flat bars can be polished in various ways for an attractive appearance. Polished sections are desirable for architectural applications and decorative uses. A brushed satin polish finish, also known as satinweb, is a ‘brushed’ finish with a fine unidirectional grain produced with ‘Scotchbrite’ type media. A bright polished finish is a reflective finish produced with mops and compounds rather than abrasive media. All of our stainless steel and aluminium profiles can be polished. Speak with a member of our team for more information.
How to bend stainless steel flat bar?
Stainless steel is not easily bent without the proper equipment and machinery. The key difference between aluminium and stainless is the working hardening rates call for more rigid equipment and higher power levels. Methods of flat bar bending include using a press brake, a bending machine or ring-rolling. Due to work hardening, bending should be done quickly.
