General

316 Grade Stainless Steel Channel profile is a "C" shaped bar used in fabrication and construction applications for making frames or racks.    Sometimes referred to a "C" channel due to the profile looking like the letter C.  316 Grade Stainless Steel Channel bars are commonly used in high corrosion or marine environments.  Limited Sizes and thickness of 316 Stainless Channel are manufactured.

Characteristics

The majority of 316 Grade Stainless Steel channels will be hot rolled mill finish, this is a relatively low tolerance coarse finish bar with a dull sometimes dimpled finish.     Can be used as a substitute for Mild Steel Channel, but with vastly improved corrosion protection performance.

Common Applications

316 Grade Stainless Steel Channel have a range of applications, they can be cut, rolled, threaded, drilled and welded for use in :

  1. Frames
  2. Lintel Beams
  3. Trailers and Truck bodies

  2. Please review our sizes here and all items can be customised and quoted online 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
  3. Many applications for 316 Grade Stainless Steel Channels call for sizes other than those manufactured commonly .  Especially in thinner and shorter pieces, in these applications clients should consider folding a custom made C Channel from plate or sheet.

Surface Preparation and Coatings

Unlike mild steel the chemistry of stainless steels means the processes and methods for protecting and finishing 316 Grade Stainless Steel are vastly different to mild steels.  Most surface finishes for stainless steel will be mechanically (Polishing) or chemically (Passivating) applied.    The correct surface finish will have substantial impacts on the performance and appearance of your stainless steel.   

One of the most important considerations for the performance and appearance Stainless Steels is cleanliness.  Surfaces need to be kept free from particles of other metals especially alloy or carbon steels.  Timber also has contaminants that will leech and stain stainless steels.

Due to the variety of finishes available in stainless steels, Edcon Steel strongly recommends you discuss your requirements with your designer or fabricator.
