Stainless steel has many uses, especially in high-temperature environments, and is simple to produce. They are also utilized in situations when little to no welding is required. It becomes more reasonably priced. Round stainless steel bars come in a variety of grades, including 17-4PH and 316 stainless steel.

Since there are so many various alloying element combinations that can be used, alloy steel can be used in a wide range of applications. Selecting an alloy steel grade can be challenging because there are so many different alloying components and combinations. Their are various factors to take into account when selecting an alloy steel for your upcoming project.


Round bars are employed in foundation benching, columns, and other structures. They provide a strong foundation for any structure, along with trusses. They have the responsibility of enhancing the structure’s resilience to both vertical and horizontal loads.

These stainless steel round bars are utilized in the chemical industry because they have the best corrosion resistance characteristics. It is suitable for use in harsh environments that may contain saltwater or other corrosive materials, such as ocean bottoms and structures along the coast.

  • Structures, appliances, and machines are all made with stainless steel round bars. The substance is also used to make jewelry and medical devices.
  • Stainless steel round bars are employed in a variety of industrial processes in addition to the production of cutlery and kitchenware.
  • Round stainless steel bars are used in many industries, including plumbing, construction, and the car industry.

310 Stainless bar 

310 stainless steel bar, also known as UNS S31000 and Grade 310, contains the following primary elements: .25% maximum carbon, 2% maximum manganese, 1.5% maximum silicon, 24% to 26% chromium, 19% to 22% nickel, traces of sulfur and phosphorus, with the balance being iron. Type 310 is superior in most environments to 304 or 309 due to its relatively high chromium and nickel content. It exhibits a combination of good strength and corrosion resistance in temperatures up to 2100° F.

The 310 round bar is an austenitic stainless steel grade. The Stainless Steel 310 Round Bar is designed with a chemical content of chromium, carbon, manganese, nickel, phosphorous, sulfur, silicon, and iron. 310 Stainless Steel Round Bar is produced with a circular cross sectional area and exhibits superior resistance to corrosive and oxidative media across stress-induced setups. The SUS 310 Rounds is utilized across high temperatures up to 1150 degrees C. 

These components perform well in carburizing environments and show enhanced toughness. The AISI 310S Polished Bar is an aesthetically appealing grade that is manufactured possessing different types of surface finishes. These bars are customizable in different shapes and sizes to meet all customer requirements.The ASTM A276 type 310 Hex Bar is a unique bar having 6 sides. The geometry of these bars allows them to be moved and rotated with ease in the system. 

A Stainless Steel 310 Square Bar is designed possessing a square cross-sectional area. These bars are common features in packing and manufacturing units. The 310 Stainless Steel Flat Bar is designed with a rectangular cross-section. The bars have lower thickness than square bars and are lightweight. 

Industries that use 310 include:

  • Aerospace
  • General Machine
  • Thermocouple

Products partially or completely constructed of 310 include:

  • Baking oven fixtures
  • Furnace components
  • Heat treating boxes
  • Hydrogenation parts
  • Jet parts

316 stainless steel

Stainless Steel 316 Round Bar is comprised of austenitic stainless steel. The substance is made up of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. Because of the molybdenum content, Stainless Steel 316 Round Bar products are more corrosion resistant than 304 Grade Stainless Steel. Tronix alloy is a leading ASTM A276 Type 316 Stainless Steel Round Bar Manufacturer and Supplier in India. 

ASTM A276 Type 316 Round Bar is a standard for hot rolled and cold drawn round bar, with the exception of forged round bar. It’s a tough, durable substance that can withstand harsh temperatures. Under the A479 standard, it can also be utilized as a pressure vessel type. The A479 Gr 316 Flat Bar, round, square, billet, ingot, and SS 316 Round Bar are just a few of the forms and sizes available. The dimensions vary depending on the size of the application. The outside diameters of the bars can range from 4mm to 500mm. The bars’ lengths range from 1 to 6 meters, with cut-to-length options available for custom orders.

The 316 Stainless Steel Hollow Bars are a mechanical tubing which is mainly used for mechanical and machining applications. They have high strength, durability and they are capable of withstanding high temperatures. They can also resist corrosion effectively.

Stainless Steel 316 Round Bars (SS 316 Bars) are molybdenum-bearing austenitic steels that are more resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion than conformist chromium-nickel austenitic steels like Stainless Steel 304.

The majority of 316 Stainless Steel Round Bars are utilized in maritime applications. Stainless Steel 316 Round Bars have a similar structure to Stainless Steel 304 Round Bars, with the addition of 2-3 percent molybdenum, which increases the steel’s resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, as well as its weldability.

Stainless Steel 316 Round Bars are been used in various applications such as: 

Exhaust manifolds, furnace components, heat exchangers, jet engine parts, pharmaceutical and photographic equipment, valve and pump parts, chemical processing equipment, tanks, and evaporators are all common uses for type 316 stainless steel. 

Numerous factors need to be taken into account, including the product’s application, the type of operating environment, and tensile strength, among many others

Understanding steel’s qualities and which of them would still be present under a particular set of circumstances is essential for maximizing steel’s utility. In order to select the best steel grade, the aforementioned factors should serve as a starting point.
