Excess Prime Stainless Steel is a high-grade product that may be the last remaining piece of a large roll or sheet, may have been wrongly cut for a custom order or may have some burning or scratches visible. That means it cannot be used for custom fabrication orders, but is a high-quality option for many projects. It will cost a little less than prime steel that is used in custom orders, so it can save businesses money. Uses can include interior machinery parts or components, roofing, heating and cooling applications, duct work in the attic or basement, or any project that requires scrap metal.
The properties of the Excess Prime Stainless Steel are, all the same; it just is not as aesthetically pleasing so it cannot be sold as Prime Steel. It is still fire-resistant, environmentally-friendly, durable, and flexible. Stainless steel is resistant to rust and corrosion, so it can withstand exposure to water and other liquids over long periods of time. That makes it ideal for humid climates, nautical applications, deep sea oil rigging, and boats. It can be cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected easily, so it is perfect for food and beverage processing, medical equipment and facilities, and research laboratories. The steel is available in coils, flat bars, tubes, sheets, plates, rounds, and blanks.
An experienced sourcing and servicing center for several grades of stainless steel, such as Toma Metals Inc., for example, can supply excess prime pieces, and process them as well. Capabilities include small or large orders for leveling, cutting to specified lengths, shearing, blanking, polishing, slitting, fiber laser cutting, and edge conditioning. There may be certain limitations to what can be fabricated with the excess prime, depending on the thickness, shape, and grade of what is available.
Business owners can go to the website for details on products and services offered, one time delivery throughout North America, and to conveniently print an application for credit. There will be times when excess prime will not be acceptable for some projects and applications where aesthetics are important. When the end result is not visible, using excess prime may allow the business to get a higher quality of stainless steel while remaining within budget for the overall project.
