304 Stainless Rectangle Tube

304 Stainless Steel Rectangle Tube has inside and outside radius corners, with a protruding interior weld seam. A stainless Rectangle Tube is ideal for all structural applications where greater strength and superior corrosion resistance is required. The tube primarily comprises iron, chromium, and nickel, with a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. These elements contribute to its excellent corrosion resistance, making it ideal for use in various environments, including those exposed to moisture or corrosive substances. Grade 304 stainless steel offers good mechanical properties and high tensile strength, making the rectangle tube sturdy and durable. This type of stainless steel is also easily weldable, which allows for the creation of complex structures or assemblies using welding techniques.

Uses of a 304 Stainless Rectangle Tubes

  • Architectural Applications: The tube’s polished surface and corrosion resistance make it a popular choice for architectural elements such as handrails, frames, and decorative components in buildings.
  • Structural Components: The high strength and weldability of the tube make it suitable for use in structural applications, such as support beams, frames, and columns.
  • Machinery and Equipment: 304 Stainless Rectangle Tubes are used in various industries to manufacture machine parts, conveyor systems, and equipment frames, where corrosion resistance and strength are crucial.
  • Food and Beverage Industry: Due to its non-reactive nature with food and resistance to corrosion, it is used in food processing equipment and storage tanks.
  • Industrial and Chemical Processing: The tube’s resistance to corrosion and chemicals makes it a preferred choice for equipment and piping used in industrial and chemical processing plants.
