The addition of nickel to this product enhances surface quality and formability and increases corrosion and wear resistance.

Common Ferritic Stainless Steel Grades of stainless steel pipe and stainless steel square bars are also highly corrosion and oxidation resistant. They can be cold worked and softened by annealing producing great results.

Midway Metals’ stainless steel pipe can be supplied in either seamless or welded pipe. Threaded, socketweld, and buttweld fittings and forged/plate flanges are also able to be ordered to suit your project needs. Midway Metals stainless steel square bar has a number of practical applications including large construction work such as wind farms, tramways, railways, oil exploration and farm equipment.
