0.9mm stainless steel sheet metal is an excellent choice for machining, forming, and fabricating projects due to its durability and stainless qualities. The 304 stainless steel structure ensures that it won’t corrode over time and is great for applications that require both strength and corrosion resistance such as kitchenware, chemical drums, and automotive trim. Despite its corrosion resistance, it remains easy to bend, cut, clean and weld with standard tools meaning 0.9mm stainless steel sheet metal makes a great solution for many projects.

0.9mm 304 stainless steel sheet metal is a versatile product, that will last a long time and can be used for myriad DIY and industrial applications.
This product is designed to offer durability, corrosion resistance, and a sleek brushed finish, making it an excellent choice for various industrial and DIY projects.
Constructed from high-quality 304 grade stainless steel, this sheet metal provides exceptional strength and longevity, ensuring it can withstand harsh environments and challenging conditions. Its 0.9mm (1/32″) thickness strikes the perfect balance between weight and sturdiness, making it easy to work with while maintaining structural integrity.
One notable feature of this stainless steel sheet metal is its protective coating, applied to one side. This coating enhances its resistance to scratches and external elements, ensuring the longevity of the material and reducing maintenance requirements. This makes it suitable for applications where aesthetics and longevity are paramount.
Weighing in at 7.11kg per square meter, this sheet metal offers substantial density and structural support for a variety of tasks. Its brushed finish not only adds an appealing texture but also minimises the appearance of smudges and fingerprints, maintaining a clean and professional look.
The uses of this product are diverse, ranging from crafting kitchen appliances, architectural elements, automotive parts, to general construction projects. Whether you need a material for decorative purposes, structural components, or functional applications, our 304 Grade Stainless Steel Sheet Metal provides a reliable and cost-effective solution.

304 stainless steel is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, making it a popular choice for a wide range of applications in various industries.
The corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel is due to the high levels of chromium and nickel that are present in the alloy. Chromium is a hard, metallic element that is highly resistant to oxidation, while nickel improves the toughness and ductility of the steel. When combined, these elements form a protective layer of chromium oxide on the surface of the metal that helps to prevent corrosion and rust.
In addition to its high levels of chromium and nickel, 304 stainless steel also contains small amounts of other elements, such as carbon, manganese, and silicon, which further enhance its corrosion resistance.
304 stainless steel is resistant to a wide range of corrosive environments, including:
The thickness of 0.9mm sheet is 0.9 millimetres, which is equivalent to 0.035 inches or approximately 23 gauge. This thickness is relatively thin and flexible, making it suitable for a variety of applications where a lightweight and malleable material is required.
In comparison to thicker sheets, 0.9mm sheet may be less suitable for applications requiring high levels of structural support or load-bearing capacity, but it can be a good choice for applications such as decorative finishes, automotive components, and sheet metal fabrication. It is important to consider the specific requirements of your application when selecting a sheet thickness.
The welding properties of 0.9mm 304 stainless steel sheet are generally good, but there are some considerations to keep in mind when welding this type of material.
304 stainless steel is known for its high thermal conductivity, which can make it challenging to maintain a stable weld pool during the welding process. To address this, it is important to use the correct welding technique and maintain proper heat control during the welding process. TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding is often used for welding thin sheets of stainless steel, as it provides a precise and controlled heat source that can minimise distortion and produce clean, high-quality welds.
In addition to the high thermal conductivity of 304 stainless steel, it is also important to consider the potential for carbide precipitation during the welding process. When heated, the carbon in the steel can combine with the chromium to form chromium carbides, which can reduce the corrosion resistance of the material in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) around the weld. To minimise the risk of carbide precipitation, it is important to use low heat input during the welding process, or use filler metals that contain titanium or niobium, which can form stable carbides that do not reduce corrosion resistance.
A variety of projects and applications can be undertaken with 0.9mm 304 stainless steel sheet metal. Its relatively thin but sturdy composition makes it ideal for creating kitchen appliances, building architectural elements, creating automotive parts, and creating general-purpose structural components. Due to its durability and corrosion resistance, this versatile material is ideal for both decorative and functional applications.
