Stainless steel flat bar is a flat rectangular steel product that is usually available in two varieties: awesome and shear and edge bar. The two have different tolerances and differences. Stainless steel flat bar is considered an essential construction material due to its versatility, as it has relatively high strength and the ability to work in the field. Stainless steel flat bars also provide additional protection against corrosion for outdoor or marine applications.
True Bar is a flat bar that has been milled to a specific size and has the same surface finish on all four sides. True Bar has tight tolerances, and the corners are square.
True Bar is typically hot rolled, annealed and treated with an acid solution to remove any surface oxidation. This process ensures a continuous polished surface, making True Bar more dimensionally accurate and increasing the corrosion resistance of the product.
True Bar requires quite complex processing steps to ensure that the final product meets the required specifications, making it more expensive than other types of flat bars.
The main differences between the two types of stainless steel flat bars are:
Performance indicators: the test items for assessing performance are mainly tensile tests and bending tests. Indicators include yield point, tensile strength, elongation and bending qualified items.
