The 201 Stainless Steel Plate is a low-cost alternative to traditional stainless steel grades, known for its good corrosion resistance, moderate strength, and economical price. It is commonly used in applications where cost efficiency and moderate performance are essential.
Chemically, the 201 Stainless Steel Plate contains approximately 16% to 18% chromium, 3.5% to 5.5% nickel, and a small amount of manganese. This composition provides the plate with adequate corrosion resistance in mild environments, making it suitable for indoor applications or environments with low exposure to corrosive agents.
The 201 Stainless Steel Plate offers moderate strength, making it suitable for applications that do not require high mechanical properties. It has good formability, allowing for easy bending, shaping, and fabrication using common techniques. However, it is not as ductile or as strong as other stainless steel grades like 304 or 316.
Additionally, the 201 Stainless Steel Plate is magnetic, which can be advantageous for certain applications that require magnetic properties.
The 201 Stainless Steel Plate is commonly used in various industries, including kitchen appliances, automotive trim, decorative applications, and utensils. It provides a cost-effective option without compromising basic corrosion resistance and formability requirements.
In summary, our 201 Stainless Steel Plate is an economical choice that offers adequate corrosion resistance and moderate strength.
