Manufacture and scope of application of cold-rolled stainless steel sheets
Cold-rolled stainless steel sheets are produced in accordance with GOST 19904-90. The manufacturer's attention to all the details of creating this type of rolled metal guarantees the production of products resistant to loads and corrosion.
The cold deformation method is used for the production of thin-sheet rolled products with a perfectly smooth, smooth surface. Low-carbon alloys with a high chromium content (at least 12%) are used as feedstock. The proportions of nickel, molybdenum, and other fillers vary depending on the type of alloy.
Perfect corrosion resistance is provided by chromium, which forms a film of oxides on the surface of cold-rolled stainless steel sheets. The protective layer is restored as it wears out on its own.
Classification and application
Cold-rolled stainless steel sheets are classified according to the type of surface, grade of steel.
The surface of the products can be:
The brand determines the quality of rolled metal.
- If you need durable products, we offer to buy stainless steel sheet 08x18n10t (AISI 321) in our company. This variety has served for at least 35 years, is in demand in all areas of industry.
- Stainless steel sheet 08x18h10 (AISI 304) is heat-resistant, works at temperatures up to 600 °C in medium aggressiveness environments. The material is in demand for the creation of furnace fittings, heat exchangers, welding machines and exhaust collectors.
- Stainless steel AISI 316, 316L is plastic, has extreme elasticity, and is operated under variable load conditions. It behaves well during welding, can be exposed to seawater.
The smooth and shiny surface of cold-rolled sheets makes them in demand in architectural structures. They are similar to precious metals in their tendency to oxidation, but they are light and durable, perfectly resist vandal actions, and are fireproof.
The aesthetics of surfaces as a separate quality of cold-rolled sheet metal ensures its popularity in the production of decorative elements. It looks good in combination with plastic, wood, glass and stone parts, does not leave fingerprints on itself.
The production of sheet steel is breaking all records in terms of volume within the industry. In the company "ALFA-STAR" you can order cold-rolled stainless steel sheet of the desired size. Certificates are provided for all products, delivery is carried out in rolls and sheets.
