Stainless Steel Tube - A Versatile Material

stainless steel tube is a very versatile material, and it's easy to see why it is so frequently used in many industries. The most common use of stainless steel is in medical equipment and devices, as it provides antibacterial properties, resistance to corrosion, ease of cleaning, and the ability to handle a wide range of fluids and gases.

Whether you need stainless tubing in large or small quantities, TW Metals has it in stock in a variety of sizes. Our commercial inventory consists of austenitic grades of 304, 304/L, and 316 stainless steel in both welded and seamless.

The 304 grade of stainless is commonly used due to its low carbon content, high chromium and nickel composition, and excellent strength. It also demonstrates corrosion resistance and a great deal of machinability.

Stainless steel ornamental tubing is often used for grab bars, handrails, handles for commercial and residential appliances, swimming pool accessories, exercise equipment, and boat or marine hardware. It is a popular choice for decorative elements because it is durable, strong, and easily cleanable with just warm water, mild soap, and a soft cloth. For a more decorative look, some stainless tubing is available with a 180 grit finish that gives a smooth surface with minimal maintenance and a durable appearance. If you're looking for a brighter and more reflective surface, 600 grit is another option that provides an ultra-smooth finish with a bright mirror-like shine similar to chrome.
