Stainless Steel Strap, Strapping, Strip, & Roll 304 316...

Clingan supplies 300 & 400 Series Stainless in all tempers from annealed to full hard. Although we specialize in tight tolerance light gauge applications, we can slit-edge-oscillate wind and precision cut to length stainless steel in thicknesses through 3/16.  We have the ability to roll or skive round or square edges. Grades we regularly stock include:

Austenitic Grades

  • 301, 302, 304 All Tempers (DQ Annealed, ¼ Hard, ½ Hard, ¾ Hard & Full Hard)
  • 316 & 321 Annealed
  • 17-7 Condition A & C
  • Austenitic stainless steel strips and straps have austenite as their primary phase. These are alloys contain chromium and nickel with a composition of iron, chromium, and nickel. Austenitic stainless steel strap is not hardenable by heat treatment. The most familiar stainless steel strap & strip is probably Type 304, sometimes called T304 or simply 304. Type 304 surgical stainless steel is an austenitic stainless steel strip and strap contains chromium and nickel.

Martensitic Grades

  • 410 and 420
  • Martensite is a very hard form (crystalline structure) of stainless steel. When viewed in cross-section, the lenticular (lens-shaped) crystal grains appear acicular (needle-shaped). Martensitic stainless steels are not as corrosion-resistant but are extremely strong and tough, as well as highly machinable, and can be hardened by heat treatment. Martensitic stainless steel contains chromium, molybdenum, nickel, and carbon.

Ferritic Grades

  • 409 and 430 Annealed
  • Ferritic stainless steels generally have better engineering properties than austenitic grades, but have reduced corrosion resistance, due to the lower chromium and nickel content. Most compositions include molybdenum, aluminum or titanium. Common ferritic grades include 18Cr-2Mo, 26Cr-1Mo, 29Cr-4Mo, and 29Cr-4Mo-2Ni.
