Benefits Of Stainless Steel Bar Stock

Stainless Steel Bar Stock is known for its corrosion resistance. By using 304/304L you get a balance of strength and corrosion resistance. In a salt environment for example you would want to use 316 stainless steel because it has 2-3% molybdenum content which makes it more corrosion resistant than 304/304L. In high temperature conditions you would want to use 321 stainless steel bar stock for its thermal properties.
