No. In general, aluminium sheeting tends to be less expensive than stainless steel sheeting. Aluminium is more abundant than stainless steel, and the process of manufacturing aluminium is typically less complex than stainless steel. Additionally, aluminium has a lower density than stainless steel, so it requires less material to produce a sheet of the same size and thickness.
Bending 1.5mm stainless steel sheeting by hand can be challenging, especially if you do not have experience in metal fabrication. The ease of bending will depend on the specific grade of stainless steel, its hardness, and its ductility.
Stainless steel is known for its strength and durability, which can make it difficult to bend, especially in thicker gauges. 1.5mm thickness is considered to be relatively thin, so it may be easier to bend than thicker gauges.
However, if the stainless steel sheeting is in a fully annealed condition, it should be relatively easy to bend by hand. If it is in a hardened or cold-rolled state, it may be more difficult to bend without cracking or breaking. We can do this for you. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this option.
Yes, 1.5mm thick 304 stainless steel sheeting can be painted, but it is important to follow the proper surface preparation and painting techniques to ensure good adhesion and durability of the paint.
First, the surface of the stainless steel sheet should be cleaned and degreased thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, or contaminants. A solvent-based cleaner or degreaser is often used for this purpose.
After cleaning, the surface should be lightly abraded using a fine-grit sandpaper or a Scotch-Brite pad to create a rough surface for the paint to adhere to. It is important to avoid using steel wool or other abrasive materials that can leave behind metal particles that can rust and cause problems with the paint finish.
Once the surface is cleaned and abraded, it should be wiped down with a clean, dry cloth to remove any dust or debris. A metal primer should then be applied to the surface to provide a good base for the paint. A high-quality acrylic or epoxy paint can be applied over the primer, following the manufacturer’s instructions for application and drying time.
