  • Seamless Tubes

    Stainless steel is a versatile material comprised of a steel alloy and a small percentage of
    chromium — the addition of chromium adds to the material’s corrosion resistance, a trait
    that earned stainless steel its name.Naturally, stainless steel pipe is used in any industry
    where corrosion protection is necessary. While stainless steel pipe is essentially alloy pipe
    by another name, it is not well suited for extreme service unless it’s been appropriately heat
    treated to increase strength and impact resistance.

  • Welded Tubes

    A welded stainless steel tube is produced through roll forming strips or sheets of stainless
    steel into a tube shape and then welding the seam longitudinally. Welded tubing can be accomplished
    either by hot forming and cold forming processes. Of the two, cold forming results in smoother
    finishes and tighter tolerances.Welded tubing is produced by rolling strips of stainless steel into
    a tube and then welding along its full length. After welding, the weld seam, or bead, can be refined
    by cold rolling and forging methods or left as is.
