Stainless Steels

Stainless steel is generally corrosion-resistant and durable, making it a popular choice for machined parts. It’s also self-repairing; after machining, the chromium in stainless steel will form an invisible layer that protects it from water and air. If the surface is scratched, this outer layer can actually rebuild itself.

This is what makes stainless steel rust-proof, and why it’s ideal for many industrial applications along with its high strength across temperature ranges.

We offer the following stainless steels for our machined parts:

  • 303
  • 304
  • 316
  • 416
  • 17-4PH
