201 stainless steel sheet

Jawaysteel stocks 201-2B Cold Rolled Mill Finish Stainless Steel Sheet. In general grade 201 alloy is a high performance austenitic stainless steel formulated to have a lower and more stable cost due to the substitution of manganese for a portion of the nickel used in 300 series stainless steels such as Type 304. In addition, the chemical composition of alloy 201 provides higher annealed mechanical properties than type 304 which can result in an additional benefit of weight reduction. The 201 tensile strength is about 10% higher than Type 304 which may allow for thinner gauges and therefore less material. However, due to the lower Chromium and Nickel content, Type 201 stainless may not have the same corrosion resistance as Type.

Uses of Stainless Steel 201

Stainless steel grade 201 is a mid-range product typically found in appliances, cookware, sinks, kitchen utensils, and food service equipment. It is also found in automotive parts and clamps as well as railroad cars, and window trim.  Its structural integrity and makeup make it ideal for uses in these industries. It tends to not be a good choice, however, for outdoor structural use, because it is susceptible to pitting and crevice corrosion from certain elements like salt water.
