The Stainless Steel Square Bar can be made of various stainless steel grades, and they are also available in different specifications. The SS Square Bars are made available in various grades and sizes as per specific requirements. Out of all the stainless steel grades, the austenitic ss square bars are the most commonly used ones. They are cost effective too. The properties of the square bar majorly depend on their chemical composition, which can be determined only by understanding the type of ss with which they are made. They are used in various applications as the square bars come with enhanced strength. Being geometrically strong, the square bars are capable of handling more stress.
Is 304 or 316 Stainless Steel better?
Whether 304 or 316 Stainless Steel Square Bar is better depends on the purpose of its usage. For example, if you want to use the square bars for marine applications or chloride environments, then grade 316 Stainless Steel would be a better choice. Similarly, if you want square bars for generation applications at an affordable price, then 304 grade is a better choice. Even though both of them offer oxidation and corrosion resistance, 316 offers better. Similarly, 304 grade has a high melting point, and thus can be used for high temperature applications.
Which is stronger 304 or 316?
The 316 SS Square Rod is a little higher in strength compared to the 304 grade steel due to its chemical composition, especially the molybdenum addition in 316. The 316 SS Square Rod has a higher yield strength, but reduced elongation and tensile strength. Generally speaking, the difference in the strength of both of these alloys are very little.
The SS Square Bars are quite versatile, can bear higher stress and thus they are used in a wide range of applications. Because of all their properties, and increased strength, the square bars are widely used in a wide range of applications in industries like shipbuilding, automotive, textile, cement, heavy earth moving equipment, and many more.
