Stainless Steel End Forming & Bending Materials

The combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and striking appearance makes stainless steel the perfect material for bent tubing uses. We offer stainless steel end forming and bending materials. Improve your application with precision stainless steel tube bending services from FormFab.  

Benefits of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a family of iron-based alloys with a minimum of roughly 11 percent chromium, an element that inhibits rust and withstands extreme temperatures. This material also has a long cycle life and is fully recyclable, making it environmentally friendly. 

  • Corrosion Resistence
  • Strength and Durability
  • Heat Resistent

Common Characteristics

There are more than 150 grades of stainless steel, and a handful of them are utilized for bent tubing applications. Specific performance characteristics vary by grade, but here are common traits. 

  • Resists Corrosion 
  • High Strength
  • Low Weight
  • Easy To Clean
  • Stands Up To High Temperatures 
  • Simple To Sterilize 
  • Withstands Low Temperatures 
  • Shiny, Aesthetically Pleasing Appearance 
  • Good Weldability
  • Strong Formability
  • Resists Magnetism, In Some Cases  

Tubing Applications

When subjected to impact forces, stainless steel’s protective surface oxide layer self-heals. Unlike other materials, areas of stainless steel tubing that sustain nicks, marks, scratches, or other forms of damage are safe from degradation.  

 As a result, stainless steel is suitable for use in a wide range of indoor and outdoor bent tubing applications. Sometimes called marine- or aerospace-grade steel, it’s at home in the extreme conditions that at-sea and in-flight applications face.   

  • Fuel Lines
  • Heating, Ventilation, And Air-Conditioning Lines, Or HVAC Lines
  • Condenser Tubes  
  • Vehicle Chassis
  • Building Structural Elements 
  • Food Processing Media Conveyance Lines
  • Electrical Wiring Protection 
  • Military Equipment Frames
  • Architectural Accent Features 
  • Shipbuilding 
  • Aircraft Frames
  • Commercial Lighting Fixtures 
  • Aerospace Lines 
  • Signage And Display Supports 
  • Automotive Components 
  • Trailer Frames
