Stainless steel sheet is a sheet whose base is iron, but it also has other alloys and other elements are combined in it depending on its mechanical properties, such as ductility, welding and hardness. Steel sheets have a low percentage of carbon, which is usually less than 2, and the higher the amount of carbon in steel sheets, the lower their ductility and their resistance.
This product is produced in two different types, square and rectangular, both of which have different dimensions and are selected depending on the needs of the project. Another characteristic of steel sheets is their very high resistance to high and low temperatures, so that these sheets can withstand temperatures of +1000 degrees Celsius and -200 degrees. In the following, we will introduce you to the specifications and types of steel sheets.
Steels are divided into two categories, simple steel or stainless steel, where simple carbon steel has limited elements, meaning that apart from carbon, it also contains silicon, manganese, sulfur and phosphorus. Now, if elements like chromium are added to iron, stainless steel is produced. Stainless steel or stainless steel, as its name suggests, is rust-proof and highly resistant to various types of corrosion. In addition, chromium turns into chromium oxide after combining with oxygen in the air. This layer cannot be seen with the eye, but this element creates a layer that creates a barrier between the air and the metal, keeping the steel safe and healthy.
In the classification of this product, the sheets are divided based on the alloy. There are several series of steels, including the 300 and 400 series. But the most famous and common steel in the market is the 300 series, which is stainless and is divided into different types such as 304, 305, 316, 321, 347, which among all 304 cases are more consuming than others.
This is despite the fact that the use of 400 series steel is a little different and it can mostly be seen in everyday life. For example, 420 steel is used to make cutlery and 430 series steel is used for decoration. In general, this metal has good malleability and because of the elements in this sheet, it has a cheaper price than 300 series steel.

What is the use of steel sheet?
Steel sheets have become one of the most widely used sheets in the market today due to their unique features and benefits. Among the types of applications of this product, the following can be mentioned:
Steel sheet dimensions
This product is produced and supplied to the consumer market in various dimensions such as 1*2 and 2.50*1.25 meters, 2.44*1.22 meters, 1.5*3 meters, 6*1.5 meters and 6*2 meters. All the mentioned dimensions have different thicknesses ranging from 35 mm to 20 mm. Also, steel sheets have widths of 100, 125, and 150 cm, and are generally available in three sizes: 200×100, 250×125, and 122×244.
The following formula can be used to calculate the weight of the steel sheet.
Weight of steel sheet = length * width * thickness * density of steel sheet
This product is shiny, smooth, rust-proof and corrosion-resistant and is available in the market in two forms, rolls and sheets. Some of its important features can be stated as follows:
