Stainless steel sheet and plate are manufactured through a HRAP (hot rolled annealed and pickled) steel mill process for an extremely robust and durable product that can be used for numerous exclusive applications. Overall, stainless steel tubing is a highly useful metal product due to its excellent resistance to high-heat, high-pressure, salt and other destructive elements.
HRAP (Hot Rolled Annealed & Pickled) Steel Mill Process
This process refers to the way in which a hot rolled piece of stainless steel sheet or plate is finished after manufacturing. The term "Pickled" means that the material has been subjected to an acid solution that has been specifically developed to remove the high temperature oxides that appear on the surface after annealing or welding. Removal of these oxides helps to restore the inherent corrosion resistance of the stainless steel. Pickling solutions can be applied by immersing the stainless steel in a bath, spraying the surface or applying small amounts of a pickling paste with a paintbrush.
Stainless Steel Sheet & Plate Applications
Stainless steel sheet and plates are used for a profusion of sanitary, food product handling and construction applications where corrosion resistance and hygienic material qualities are required. Some of the unique applications related to stainless steel sheet and plate products, include:
- Hospital Equipment
- Marine Hardware
- Food & Beverage
- Kitchen Appliances
- Back Splashes
Stainless Steel Sheet & Plate Benefits
Stainless steel plate is often referred to as 'corrosion-resistant steel' - it does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as normal carbon steel. It would however be misleading to say it is corrosion-proof. It differs significantly from standard carbon steel due to the amount of chromium present, which limits surface corrosion unlike carbon steel which will rust when exposed to air and any moisture in the atmosphere. Due to its anti-oxidation qualities, stainless steel is often a popular solution. Other benefits, include:
- Corrosion Resistance
- Wonderful Aesthetics
- Excellent Hygienic Qualities
- Easily Fabricated
- Strength-To-Weight Advantages
