Stainless Steel Tubing Supplier

stainless steel grades and applications

Strong and degradation-resistant, stainless steel is the perfect tubing material for challenging environments. Texas Alloys & Tool supplies this metal alloy in a variety of grades, profiles, sizes, and lengths.  

What is stainless steel tubing? 

Stainless steel tubes are iron-and-chromium alloys with a hollow shaft. The chromium content of the material forms an oxide film on its surface that naturally resists corrosion. Performance characteristics vary by grade, but common attributes of stainless steel tubing include: 

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Fire and heat resistance
  • Easy to clean
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Easy to fabricate
  • Exceptional aesthetic value
  • Recyclable

Stainless Steel Tube Applications

A low weight coupled with enhanced physical and chemical properties means stainless steel tubes are incredibly versatile. That makes them ideal for a range of industries: 

  • Architecture
  • Oil & Gas
  • Machine Shops
  • Metal Fabricators
  • Power Plants
  • Maintenance Departments
  • Food Processing 
  • Power Generation
  • Aerospace 

Stainless Steel Tube Shapes

Texas Alloys & Tool can supply stainless steel tubes in various sizes and shapes. Whether you need round, square, or rectangular tubing, we have the sourcing capabilities to meet your needs. 

Stainless Steel Round Tube

A round stainless steel tube that’s perfect for various applications, from construction to general manufacturing and fabrication. It exhibits excellent strength and durability but is easy to cut, bend, and form.

Stainless Steel Square Tube

This square-shaped stainless steel product is a superb choice for lightweight structural support. It exhibits excellent weight-bearing, corrosion resistance, durability, and a high strength-to-weight ratio.

Stainless Steel Rectangular Tube

Featuring a rectangular shape, this type of stainless steel tube offers a powerful combination of strength, durability, and anti-corrosion properties. Resistance to degradation makes it ideal for outdoor applications and harsh environments that can cause other materials to fail. 

The Right Material Grade for the Job

At Texas Alloys & Tool, we understand that an application’s performance hinges upon the materials used in its construction or manufacture. That’s why we stock stainless steel tubes in a range of grades. 

Available Grades
Stainless Steel
303 Stainless Steel Type 303 is a non-magnetic, austenitic stainless steel grade. It’s easy to fabricate and offers outstanding resistance to heat and oxidation when exposed to temperatures up to 760 degrees Celsius. Quote »
304/304L Stainless Steel 304 grade round tube is a type of stainless steel utilized for general purpose and custom applications. It’s resistant to corrosion and becomes stronger with cold working. Quote »
310 Stainless Steel A low-carbon austenitic stainless steel type. It has superb corrosion resistance and isn’t prone to thermal fatigue or cyclic heating. It exhibits good strength in temperatures up to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit. Quote »
316/316L Stainless Steel A stainless steel grade that features a heightened amount of molybdenum. It offers increased resistance to chloride corrosion. Quote »
Alloy 20 Stainless Steel Also called Carpenter® 20 and Incoloy® 20, this is an austenitic nickel-iron-chromium alloy. Performance characteristics include resistance to corrosion, crevice corrosion, and pitting. Quote »
416 Stainless Steel A highly machinable, low-cost martensitic stainless steel. It offers resistance to freshwater, acids, alkalis, and air. It’s less resistant to corrosion than austenitic steels. Quote »
440 Stainless Steel Type 440 Stainless Steel is a hardenable high-carbon chromium steel. It exhibits good corrosion and abrasion resistance. Quote »
630 Stainless Steel A corrosion-resistant stainless steel grade that’s magnetic and easily weldable. It loses some toughness at higher temperatures. Quote »
17-4 Stainless Steel 17-4 PH, also known as UNS S17400, is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel. It offers good corrosion resistance and high strength. Quote »
