304 Stainless Steel Sheet & Coil I Ganpati Industries

304 stainless steel sheet is a versatile and widely used grade of stainless steel renowned for its excellent corrosion resistance, durability, and ease of fabrication. It belongs to the austenitic family of stainless steels, characterized by their high chromium and nickel content, which provide enhanced resistance to corrosion and oxidation, even in harsh environments. The "304" designation indicates its composition, with approximately 18% chromium and 8% nickel, making it highly resistant to corrosion from chemicals, acids, and saltwater. This material is commonly employed in various industries such as food processing, chemical processing, automotive, and construction for applications ranging from kitchen equipment and architectural trim to industrial machinery and storage tanks. Additionally, its non-magnetic properties make it suitable for use in environments where magnetic interference is a concern.

The strength of a stainless steel sheet depends on two factors: thickness and grade. Thicker sheets are naturally more resistant to bending and warping, but the real game-changer is the type of stainless steel.
The most common type, grade 304, balances strength and corrosion resistance well. In its softened state, it can withstand around 30,000 psi of force. But through cold working, it can be tripled in strength! Even stronger grades exist, reaching up to 250,000 psi. So, a stainless steel sheet can range from moderately tough to incredibly strong depending on what you need.
Stainless steel sheet and coil are essentially two forms of the same versatile and popular metal. Both are flat-rolled, offering excellent resistance to corrosion, heat, and wear.
Sheet: Typically comes in cut lengths, with a thickness ranging from 1 millimetre to 200 millimetres. It's ideal for applications requiring flat panels and can be easily formed or welded.
Coil: Sold in large rolls, offering much greater lengths and widths compared to sheets. Coils are often fed into machines for continuous processing like cutting, bending, or stamping.
