201 2B Stainless Steel

2B is the most widely used stainless steel surface finish. 201 2B stainless steel is especially common in industrial, chemical and food processing applications such as process vessels and storage tanks. It is also used in some architectural applications, such as downspouts and gutters, where the uniformity of the finish will not be carefully checked.

Consider the following properties when specifying this 201 2B stainless steel:

  • 2B is the most economical finish

  • Chemically pickled and smooth, thus highly resistant to corrosion

  • 201 2B stainless steel is not uniform and may not match in appearance over a wide range and between batches etc.

  • As sub-product of 2B surface finish stainless steel, 201 2B stainless steel has been produced in the factory and cannot be matched after processing

  • 201 2B stainless steel is often protected by a plastic film until final cleaning and commissioning

Application201 2B stainless steel is typically used for non-cosmetic parts. Items we typically see with a 2B finish include bakeware and flatware, fixtures, solar panels, industrial equipment, enclosures and covers.
Brief IntrodctionA smooth, moderately reflective cold-rolled annealed and pickled or descaled finish typically produced by imparting a final light cold-rolled pass using [large diameter] polished rolls. This general-purpose finish is more readily polished than No 1 or 2D finishes.

What Are The Properties Of 201 2b Stainless Steel?

201 2B Stainless Steel has several key properties. It has good formability, meaning it can be easily shaped and fabricated. 201 2B stainless steel also has moderate corrosion resistance, although it is not as corrosion-resistant as higher-grade stainless steels. Additionally, 201 2B Stainless Steel has good strength and toughness, making it suitable for various applications.

What are the Applications of 201 2B Stainless Steel? 

201 2B Stainless Steel has a wide range of applications. It is commonly used in the manufacturing of kitchen utensils, cookware, and sinks due to its low cost and ability to withstand normal wear and tear. 201 2B stainless steel is also used in medical equipment, decorative items, and automotive trim. However, it is less commonly used in corrosive environments or high-temperature applications. 

Can 201 2B Stainless Steel be Welded? 

Yes, 201 2B Stainless Steel can be welded using standard welding techniques. However, it is important to note that compared to other stainless steel grades, such as 304 or 316, 201 stainless steel may require more heat during the welding process. It is recommended to consult the welding procedure guidelines or seek professional advice for proper welding techniques. 

What are the Advantages of Using 201 2B Stainless Steel? 

201 2B Stainless Steel offers several advantages. It is a cost-effective option compared to higher-grade stainless steels, making it suitable for applications with budget constraints. 201 2B stainless steel has good formability, allowing for easy fabrication and shaping. Additionally, 201 2B Stainless Steel has a smooth surface finish, making it visually appealing for decorative applications.
