Stainless steel is a type of steel that contains chromium, which makes it highly resistant to rust and corrosion. Grade 304 stainless steel is a common type of stainless steel that is often used in various applications, including food processing equipment, chemical processing equipment, and medical devices, due to its excellent corrosion resistance, durability, and versatility.
These stainless sheets are offered here in small sizes to suit all requirements. We also offer metal sheet in full 2 metre x 1 metre panels.

Stainless steel sheet metal can be bent, but it depends on the thickness and type of stainless steel. Thicker sheets of stainless steel may require more force to bend and may require specialized equipment to do so. However, thinner sheets of stainless steel, such as the 0.8mm 304 stainless steel sheet metal mentioned earlier, can be bent relatively easily with the right tools and techniques.
The ease of bending also depends on the grade of stainless steel. Some grades of stainless steel, such as 304, are more ductile and can be bent more easily than other grades, such as 410.
The key to bending stainless steel sheet metal is to use the proper tools and techniques. One popular method is to use a sheet metal brake, which is a specialized tool that can bend the metal to a specific angle. Another method is to use a press brake, which is a larger and more powerful tool that can bend thicker sheets of stainless steel.
Stainless steel is generally known for its high strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion and rust. It is a very strong material and is less likely to crack or fracture than many other materials. However, stainless steel can still crack under certain conditions.
One of the main causes of cracking in stainless steel is stress corrosion cracking. This occurs when the stainless steel is exposed to both tensile stress and a corrosive environment, such as in the presence of chlorides. This type of cracking can occur even in stainless steel with high corrosion resistance and can be difficult to detect.
Another possible cause of cracking in stainless steel is improper fabrication or welding. If the welding or fabrication is not done properly, it can cause stress points or weak spots in the material, which can lead to cracking.
While stainless steel is a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material, there are several substances and environmental factors that can potentially damage or destroy it over time. Some of the most common things that can damage stainless steel include:
The lifespan of stainless steel depends on various factors such as the quality of the stainless steel, the environmental conditions it is exposed to, and the maintenance and care it receives.
In general, stainless steel is a very durable and long-lasting material, and with proper care and maintenance, it can last for many years, if not decades. The corrosion-resistant properties of stainless steel make it particularly well-suited for use in outdoor and marine environments, where it can withstand exposure to moisture, saltwater, and other harsh conditions.
