How To Produce Stainless Steel Flat Strips?

Stainless steel flat strips is also called high-temperature or corrosion-resistant stainless steel flat narrow bars.

The stainless steel flat strips are mostly in demand due to having the chromium-rich oxide layer on the surface. This layer protects the stainless steel from corrosion in extreme weather conditions. The stainless steel strips are formed by an industrial process and then cut into flat, thin pieces as per customer different requirements.

Stainless steel flat strips are mostly used in automobiles, home appliances, the oil and gas field, and the aerospace industry.

Stainless steel flat strips are the best alternative to ordinary carbon steel narrow bars, requiring consistent performance and quality precision work.

We can achieve a surface finish with outstanding electrical and mechanical properties by using stainless steel strips.

Flat stainless steel strips can easily produce by hot and cold rolling processes to achieve the desired thickness and width.

The stainless steel flat strip is the product of stainless steel. Stainless steel has a minimum of 10.5% chromium and less than 1.2% carbon content.

Stainless steel flat strips produce from stainless steel by a hot and hot rolling process in the industry.

Long, narrow stainless steel flat strips are generally manufactured to fulfill the requirements of many industrial and mechanical fields. We can make precise flat stainless steel strips in various sizes with our outstanding expertise.

What Are The Applications Of Stainless Steel Flat Strips?

Stainless steel flat strips are very in-demand engineering products and widely used in industry as well as daily use products.

With good machining properties and outstanding resistance against corrosion, stainless steel flat strips are widely used worldwide.

Common applications include construction, chemical, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), chemical, food preparation, and automobiles.

Stainless steel flat strips are also the most famous building and construction materials due to their unique properties.

They are used in household appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, and dryers because these strips are lightweight and easy to fabricate.

Why We Need Flat Stainless Steel Strips?

Stainless steel flat strips are machine-able products and are ideal for producing pressed elements.

A stainless steel flat strip can be between 0.2mm and 6mm thick, equivalent to a sheet. Strip products are significantly narrower, up to 24 inches wide.

Due to its surface finish, corrosion resistance, and electrical conductivity, stainless steel flat strips are the basic need of every industry and are also commonplace.

Flat stainless steel strips are resistant to moisture from humidity and leaks, making all floor surfaces carefree. There are many different thicknesses, profiles, and shapes of stainless steel strips.

Advantages Of The Stainless Steel Flat Strips

Stainless steel flat strips have many advantages over ordinary carbon steel, like excellent corrosion resistance, ductility, and tensile strength. Stainless steel flat strips can be recycled and have environment friendly properties.

Stainless steel flat strips can resist scaling and maintain strength at very high temperatures. Stainless steel flat strips can be easily cut, welded, shaped, machined, and constructed. To create extremely high-strength components, stainless steel flat strips can be heat treated.

With the help of the cold rolling process, we can achieve our desired thickness and reduce the weight and cost. The corrosion resistance is excellent in all stainless steels. The highly graded alloys may resist corrosion in most acids and alkaline solutions, even at high temperatures and pressures. At the same time, low-grade alloys resist corrosion under atmospheric conditions.

How To Manufacture One Piece Of Stainless Steel Flat Strip?

Stainless steel flat strips are widely used in industries.

Mill origin workers added nickel and chromium contents to attain the desired properties like corrosion resistance and durability.

Here is the complete manufacturing process of stainless steel flat strips.

1.Preparation of raw material

We are dealing with the world’s best raw material supplier to purchase the raw material of stainless steel coils. Incoming quality control inspects the raw materials for the stainless steel flat strips once they arrive at our factory.

2.Cold rolling

We convert the mother coil of stainless steel with a thickness ranging from 2.0mm to 3.0mm into stainless steel flat strip thickness ranging from 0.2mm to 1.0 mm by cold rolling process.

3.Annealing process

This process is also called bright annealing treatment. This process has four stages; every stage has a rolling process.

We can achieve the desired thickness of stainless steel strip ranges from 0.2mm ~1.0mm to 0.02mm ~ 0.1mm.

By using a continuous annealing line, the strip can be cooled. The stainless steel strip moves along the line at a rate of 60 to 80 meters per minute.

4.Cleaning or degreasing process

In the degreasing process, we clean the residual oil from the surface of the stainless steel strip.

The idea is to remove grease from the surface of the steel strip using a chemical reaction between the alkaline agent and the grease.

5.Straitening process

After rolling stainless steel strips on 20 roller mills, it is hard to warp the metal. Stretch bending straightening is the single technique that can relieve steel strip stress in the presence of complete softening and sufficient tension leveling.

6.Slitting process

Our operators use large and small slitting machines for cutting different sizes of stainless steel strips.

When getting ready to slit, our employees will adjust coils and cutting tools to reduce the burr of strip edges as much as achievable.
