1.5mm stainless steel sheets are a versatile metal, that will last a long time and can be used for myriad DIY and industrial applications.
The sheet metal features a brushed finish, providing both an aesthetically pleasing appearance and a texture that enhances its resistance to fingerprints and minor abrasions.
Beneficially, each sheet comes with a protective coating on one side. This coating ensures the sheet remains free from scratches or blemishes during transportation and initial installation. Once you’re ready to use or display the sheet, this coating can be easily removed, revealing the pristine stainless steel beneath.
A notable specification of our stainless steel sheets is their weight. Weighing at 11.85kg per square meter, these sheets have been designed with a thickness of 1.5mm, or approximately 1/16”. This thickness strikes an ideal balance, offering substantial durability while remaining pliable enough for various applications.
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.

Generally, stainless steel is known for its high strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion. 1.5mm thickness is considered to be relatively thin, but it can still provide adequate strength for certain applications.
The strength of the steel can also vary depending on the direction in which it is stressed, whether it is under tension, compression, or bending. Furthermore, the strength of the steel may be affected by any welding or other processes used to fabricate it.
1.5mm thick 304 grade stainless steel sheet can be bent, but its ease of bending will depend on a few factors, including the specific composition and condition of the material, the tools and techniques used for bending, and the degree and direction of the bend.
304 stainless steel is an austenitic stainless steel and is one of the most commonly used grades of stainless steel. It is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and good formability. In general, austenitic stainless steels like 304 are more ductile and easier to bend than other types of stainless steel.
However, the hardness of the stainless steel, which can vary depending on its processing and heat treatment history, will also play a role in how easily it can be bent. If the stainless steel sheet is in a fully annealed condition, it should be relatively easy to bend. If it is in a hardened or cold-rolled state, it may be more difficult to bend without cracking or breaking.
I guess this is about how one defines “better”?
Whether 304 or 316 sheet metal is better depends on the specific application and the properties required for the material.
Both 304 and 316 stainless steel are high-quality materials that are commonly used in a wide range of applications due to their excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and good formability. However, there are some differences between the two grades.
316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, which makes it more resistant to certain types of corrosion than 304 stainless steel. This makes 316 a better choice for applications in harsh environments such as marine environments or those involving exposure to chloride solutions or other corrosive chemicals.
304 stainless steel, on the other hand, is a more cost-effective option and is commonly used in applications where high strength and good corrosion resistance are required, but where exposure to corrosive environments is not as severe as in marine or chemical processing applications.
