Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet & Plate
Decorative stainless steel sheet is made from stainless steel as the substrate, which is further processed by applying some fabricating and finishing methods to make it be widely used for architectural and decorative applications, such as wall panels, ceilings, cladding, dividing screens, etc. They are also used for kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity. When such a type a metal sheet is thicker than 6mm, it’s called decorative stainless steel plate. Decorative stainless steel sheet or plate include various designs and styles to present many aesthetic benefits. They retain the properties of original stainless steel, but are more durable and have better corrosion resistance.
Types Of Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet
There are many types of decorative stainless steel sheets and plates available in the market. Different types of these materials have different aesthetic and functional properties. They have good mechanical and corrosion resistance and a long-lasting color surface. It can resist nitric acid and other chemical agents. Because of these properties, it can be used in a wide range of chemical applications. Additionally, these materials are heat resistant to withstand a temperature up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and have better salt spray corrosion resistance than ordinary stainless steel.
Applications For Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet
Decorative stainless steel sheet & plate can be used for interior and exterior wall decoration. These sheets are also suitable for making household appliances, such as kitchen and bathroom utensils. Due to their resistance to corrosion, these sheets are easily sterilisable. This is because they are free of any harmful chemicals. Furthermore, they are available in a variety of styles such as mirror stainless steel sheet, hairline stainless steel sheet, sandblasted stainless steel sheet, etc. If you are interested in purchasing colored stainless steel sheets and plates, here are some of the applications they can be used for:
Hairline stainless steel sheet: This type of decorative stainless steel sheet is a high-quality material for elevator decoration. These sheets are produced by using wire drawing equipment with an oil medium. The abrasive belts are 120-300 mesh, depending on the product specification. They will have a large amount of space for adjustable lines. This method will produce hairline stainless steel sheet and plate. This type of sheet will have a more beautiful appearance than ordinary black stainless steel.
Difference Between Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet & Plate
Decorative stainless steel sheets & plates are absolutely not the same, they are typically different in their thickness. The more the thickness, the stronger the strength, different thickness is used for different purpose. Below are the properties of stainless steel sheet and plate:
Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet
Decorative stainless steel sheet generally features a thickness not more than 6mm, it’s usually utilized for architectural structures and decorative material without extra durability requirements. Stainless steel sheet comes with corrosion resistance and is well suited for cladding, roofing, railing, and ceiling.
Decorative Stainless Steel Plate
The thickness of decorative stainless steel plate is typically more than 6mm, and it’s usually applied in purposes where required high durability and strength are more than the weight requirement. It is used in architectural structures and industrial applications where durability is required to pass strength & tenacity testing.
Main Materials For Decorative SS Sheet
There are 2 grades of SS sheets that are commonly used for decorative applications, and they are generally defined according to their proportion of alloying composition. They all have common features such as durability and resistance to rust, corrosion, and stain. However, there are still a few slightly different properties between these grades. There are two common grades of SS sheets (304 and 316L) that we commonly used for mirror polished finish as below:
304 SS Sheet
Grade 304 is the most widely used type of SS sheet metal that we usually find in various commercial applications, 304 stainless steel sheet has resistance to rust and corrosion, and it’s a fire-proof and heat-resistance material as it comes with a high melting point, and the surface finished with mirror finish is easy to clean and requires low maintenance. 304 stainless steel with a polished surface is a versatile type of material be widely used for bathroom ceilings, walls, kitchen sinks, backsplashes, food equipment, and so on.
316L SS Sheet
For further enhancing the ability to resist corrosion and oxidation, stainless steel of grade 316L is the most ideal one, and it’s regarded as marine grade stainless steel. The letter “L” means LOW CONTENT of carbon, which is lower than 0.03%, which has the better properties of easy welding and resistance to rust and corrosion. 316 SS sheet with BA, 2B finish is generally used for the facade, and other indoor and outdoor decorative applications, tools and facilities for food, and any application that highly require resistance.
Benefits Of Decorative Stainless Steel Sheet
The advantages of using a patterned, stainless steel sheet over a plain sheet are many. This type of metal is much stronger than ordinary sheet metal, which means that less raw material is required to produce it. Furthermore, this metal is remarkably resistant to wear, scratching, denting, and tearing. Moreover, it reflects light beautifully, which is another great benefit. These qualities make it an excellent choice for any interior design project.
