  There are many types of stainless steel plate,such as 304 inox plate,hot rolled stainless steel plate,316 inox plate and so on.Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is this addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion-resisting properties.The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible, corrosion-resisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel, and nitrogen.

  1,Something about the hot rolled stainless steel plate

  ffering exceptional versatility, our hot rolled plates are used in virtually all industries and markets. In addition to plates, we produce quarto plate that is available in thicknesses up to 130 mm.Hot rolled plates is available in a wide range of heat- and corrosion-resistant grades in all stainless steel types: austenitic, ferritic, duplex and martensitic. The resulting material is highly workable and 100% recyclable.

  We are one of the few stainless steel producers that can provide sheet and plate in widths up to two meters (72”). We offer standard widths (1,000, 1,250 and 1,500 mm) in a large range of thicknesses and grades, and the widest available thickness range (from 2.4 mm up to 12.7 mm). Tailored dimensions are available by request.

  Dedicated to consistent quality, we produce hot rolled plate products with low residual stresses. An advanced leveling process provides superior flatness for various applications.

  Our hot rolled products available in 1/1D surface finish. They are hot rolled, heat treated and pickled. We offer also semi-cold rolled 1/2E surface finish RAP®2E that is a relatively rough shot-blasted finish with cold band tolerances and less roughness than a 1/1D finish. RAP®2E is available in austenitic and ferritic grades.

  2,316 and 304 inox plate is usually used

  316 / 316L stainless steel plates are part of the austenitic family of stainless steel and is the most widely used varieties of stainless plate. 316 grades contain a higher level of Nickel than 304 giving it an improved corrosion resistance over 304 grades. 316/316L plate is a good option for marine applications due to a good atmospheric corrosion resistance. 316L is a low carbon modification to 316 grade.

  Type 304, with its chromium-nickel content and low carbon, is the most versatile and widely used of the austenitic inox plate. Its alloys are all modifications of the 18% chromium, 8% nickel austenitic alloy. Type 304 proves to be resistant to oxidation, corrosion, and durability. All provide ease of fabrication and cleaning, prevention of product contamination offer a variety of finishes and appearances. Type 304 inox plate are used in corrosion resistant electrical enclosures, auto molding and trim, wheel covers, kitchen equipment, hose clamps, exhaust manifolds, stainless hardware, storage tanks, pressure vessels and piping.

  3,what should pay attention to choose the stainless steel plate

  (1), pay attention to whether it is poor quality

  In order to reduce costs, unscrupulous businesses have caused consumers to snap up at unlimited low prices, thus using inferior slabs containing excessive amounts of benzene, formaldehyde, lead, organic acids, and other harmful substances. Formaldehyde and benzene in this type of plate will continue to volatilize continuously for 3-5 years, directly contaminating imported food, thus poisoning the respiratory system and digestive system.

  (2), pay attention to whether it is false stainless steel

  Most stainless steel products now reduce the proportion of the key anti-rust element "nickel" in stainless steel for economic benefits(because nickel is more expensive) and add harmful manganese, copper, and phosphorus instead. Which elements will enter the human body through contact, cooking, packaging and thus have great harm to nerve, immune, endocrine, reproductive and other systems.
