A Highly Versatile Material Available in Thousands of Patterns

Quality perforated stainless steel can be used in several applications because it is strong, corrosion-resistant, and visually attractive. Stainless steel is an alloy that includes chromium, so it resists the formation of ferric oxide that would otherwise result from interaction with oxygen. This causes its characteristic luster, which, combined with its low maintenance requirements, make it an ideal choice for many uses. Architects, engineers, and designers utilize this appealing and durable metal in various ways. When they need stainless steel perforated sheet manufacturers they can trust, many of them turn to us. At Accurate Perforating, our mission is to adhere to the highest standards of perforated metal.

Characteristics of Perforated Stainless Steel

Perforated stainless steel panels give professionals various options and benefits for their projects. The versatility and flexibility of stainless steel mean it can be utilized for purely aesthetic purposes and more practical applications such as ventilation. This material has many advantages:

  • Provides excellent corrosion resistance when left unfinished
  • Finishing with a variety of coatings customizes its appearance and further increases its longevity
  • Perforated stainless sheet is a sustainable, reusable resource
  • It can be produced from recycled material
  • Lasts for generations
  • Can be completely recycled when no longer needed

Common Perforated Stainless Steel Grades

Perforated metal made from stainless steel is typically made from an austenitic (which contains significant amounts of nickel and chromium) grade. These include:

  • 303: Excellent machinability, good corrosion resistance, moderate heat resistance, weldable, non-magnetic, and polished surface finish. Common applications include nuts and bolts, aircraft fittings, gears, and bushings
  • 304: Corrosion-resistant, strong, formable, hygienic, non-magnetic (except when cold worked where it is slightly magnetic), high-temperature resistant, weldable; widely used in various industries. Common applications include architectural components, kitchens, food processing
  • 304L: The L Stands for low carbon content; corrosion-resistant, weldable, strong, formable, temperature resistant, and suitable for sanitary applications.
  • 316 and 316L (low carbon): Similar mechanical and physical properties as 304 but more resistant to pitting corrosion, especially in warm chloride environments. Virtually non-magnetic. Common applications include marine parts, architectural components, food processing, hot water systems
  • 321: corrosion-resistant, high-temperature strength, stabilized structure, weldable, formable, strong, heat-resistant, and excellent mechanical properties. Common applications include high-temperature components, pharmaceutical processing equipment, heat exchangers
