Stainless is most commonly found in industrial applications, the most common types are 304, 316, and 400 series stainless steels.

304 includes sheets, piping, tubing, turnings, and even the kitchen sink!. The approximate chemistry of 304 is 17% chrome, 8% nickel, and 75% iron. 316 included: sheets, piping, turnings, and tubing. This alloy is most commonly used in high heat and petrochemical applications. The approximate chemistry of 316 is 16% chrome, 10% nickel, 2% molybdenum, 72% iron. 400 includes sheet, tubing, and turnings. This material is most commonly used in environments that are not in high heat or corrosive environments. A common application of 400 series stainless is in appliances and automotive applications.

There are many other types and grades of stainless steels that we purchase as well.

We also purchase all types of alloys in solids or turnings form as well which include, but not limited to: Inconels, Incoloys, Hastalloys, Waspalloy, Monels, Tool Steels, Tungsten Carbide, and Mallorys. The value of these items differs tremendously based on the alloy, if the alloy is segregated or mixed, and the quantity.
