Stainless Steel Round Bar Stock: Corrosion Resistance and Surface Finish
Stainless steel round bar stock exhibits excellent resistance to corrosion and oxidation. And with proper machining, it can result in a smooth surface finish. The 12% chromium content in stainless steel bars plays a crucial role in providing corrosion resistance.
However, chromium offers more than just corrosion resistance. It also contributes to improving the ductility, hardness, high strength, workability, and formability of stainless steel.
Additionally, stainless steel bars are cost-effective as they are 100% recyclable and recoverable. This makes them a popular choice for various metalworking operations such as centerless grinding, saw cutting, turning, and more.
