Used in a wide range of construction applications, stainless steel bar lengths offer high tensile strength and are a durable and long-lasting option. Stainless steel bars have the same fundamental properties as regular mild steel bars but feature higher chromium content within the material itself. This added content provides a protective layer on the material to prevent corrosion and staining, however, this added benefit makes the material slightly weaker than mild steel due to lower carbon content and also means the material has a slightly lower hardness level in comparison to mild steel.
When buying stainless bar form, length and diameter are the key factors to consider with the addition of width when buying rectangular-shaped lengths. Stainless steel bars are available in three forms, Square, Rectangle and Round. Square bar features two equal width sides with varying lengths to suit your application. Rectangular bars feature differing widths and heights with the same variety of lengths to match your requirements. Stainless bars are also available in round form, stainless round bar, also known as stainless steel rod, is measured in diameter and can be found in various lengths and grades similar to both square and rectangular bar.
