Laser Cut Stainless Steel

Laser cut stainless steel’s resistance to oxidation also lends itself to more corrosive, high exposure applications. It can be found everywhere from construction sites to wineries to marine environments, with a different purpose in each one. The versatility of this steel makes it one of the most widely used materials SendCutSend offers. For extreme corrosion resistance, check out our laser cut 316 stainless steel.

Used in a variety or applications

Fusion welding performance for 304 stainless steel is excellent both with and without fillers so it’s a strong choice across projects that require welding. Heavily welded sections sometimes require additional treatments, such as annealing, but generally the material is simple to weld.
