Get a Close Look at Stainless Steel Plates

The surface of the stainless steel plate is smooth and has high plasticity, toughness and mechanical strength, and is resistant to corrosion by acids, alkaline gases, solutions and other media. It is an alloy steel that is not easily rusted, but it is not absolutely rust-free. Stainless steel plate refers to steel plate which is resistant to corrosion by weak medium such as atmosphere, steam and water, and acid-resistant steel plate refers to steel plate which is resistant to corrosion by chemical etching medium such as acid, alkali and salt. Stainless steel plates have been around since the beginning of the 20th century and have been around for more than a century.


Stainless steel sheets are generally a general term for stainless steel sheets and acid-resistant steel sheets. Stainless steel plate refers to steel plate which is resistant to corrosion by weak medium such as atmosphere, steam and water, and acid-resistant steel plate refers to steel plate which is resistant to corrosion by chemical etching medium such as acid, alkali and salt. Since the advent of stainless steel plates at the beginning of this century, the development of stainless steel plates has laid an important material and technical foundation for the development of modern industry and scientific and technological progress. There are many kinds of stainless steel plate steels with different properties, and it has gradually formed several major categories in the development process. According to the structure of the organization, it is divided into four categories: austenitic stainless steel plate, Martens stainless steel plate (including precipitation hardened stainless steel plate), ferritic stainless steel plate, and austenite plus ferrite duplex stainless steel plate. The main chemical composition or some characteristic elements in the steel plate are classified into chrome stainless steel plate, chrome nickel stainless steel plate, chrome nickel molybdenum stainless steel plate and low carbon stainless steel plate, high molybdenum stainless steel plate, high purity stainless steel plate and the like. According to the performance characteristics and application classification of steel plates, it is divided into nitric acid resistant stainless steel plates, sulfuric acid resistant stainless steel plates, pitting resistant stainless steel plates, stress corrosion resistant stainless steel plates, high strength stainless steel plates, etc. Classified according to the functional characteristics of the steel plate, it is divided into low temperature stainless steel plate, non-magnetic stainless steel plate, free cutting stainless steel plate, super plastic stainless steel plate and so on. The commonly used classification method is classified according to the structural characteristics of the steel plate and the chemical composition of the steel plate and the combination of the two. Generally, it is divided into martensite stainless steel plate, ferritic stainless steel plate, austenitic stainless steel plate, duplex stainless steel plate and precipitation hardening stainless steel plate, or divided into two categories: chrome stainless steel plate and nickel stainless steel plate.

It is required to withstand the corrosion of various acids such as oxalic acid, sulfuric acid-ferric sulfate, nitric acid, nitric acid-hydrofluoric acid, sulfuric acid-copper sulfate, phosphoric acid, formic acid, acetic acid, etc., widely used in chemical, food, pharmaceutical, paper, petroleum, atomic energy, etc. Industry, as well as construction, kitchen utensils, tableware, vehicles, household appliances and other components.
