Stainless Steel Product Information
Gauge – How thick the material is (10ga. – 18ga) – The lower the gauge the thicker the material
Grade – There are three grades of stainless steel that Deronde will provide. (304, 316, 317) The Grade of Stainless steel is the compound of the stainless and is not visible, but it will perform differently in different applications. The more nickel in the grade, the better it will perform against corrosion.
304- (min. 8% nickel content) – this grade is very common and the least expensive grade of SS that Deronde provides.
316 -(min. 10% nickel content) – this grade is used often in water and food treatment plants.
317 – (min. 11% nickel content) – this is used very rarely, but has a little more nickel content than 316.
Finish – This is how the stainless steel is or is not polished. There are three typical finishes that Deronde will offer. (2b,#4, and #6)
2b – not polished
#4 – is a matte finish. (95%, if not more of industry use #4 finish)
#6 – less reflective finish than #4 finish
XLS – A finish that is prevalent in many Northern architectural projects. This particular finish is more durable in cold weather climates.
Passivate Finish – passivate finish is available and certification will be provided when ordered. Passivation takes the oxides out and seals the stainless steel to help mitigate corrosion.
