Stainless Steel Plates
Type 304 grade (18% chromium and 8% nickel) – is the general work horse of stainless steel and is the most widely used grade of stainless due to its weldabilty and resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments. It does however have a poor resistance to marine type environments.
Type 316 grade (16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum) is used in preference to Type 304 when used in marine or chemically exposed environments. Grade 316 is typically more resistant to solutions of sulfuric acid, chlorides, bromides, iodides and fatty acids at high temperature.

Perforated Stainless Steel Sheet
Type 430 grade is a lower cost material typically used in refrigeration and for its magnetic properties. It is not recommended for exterior environments due to its poor resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.
