Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as regular carbon steel and offers an aesthetic appeal with anti-bacterial properties. This makes it ideal for applications in industries such as food handling and processing, medical, and construction.
Stainless sheet and plate differ in thickness and durability. Sheets are thinner, usually 6mm or less, and used for lightweight residential applications. Plates provide more tensile strength and are used in heavy-duty applications. You can determine the difference by looking at the gauge – the higher the gauge, the thinner the material.
