Stainless Steel H-Beam

Stainless steel H-beams are structural steel beams with an H-shaped cross-section. They are designed to withstand high loads and provide excellent structural support. The vertical section (web) of the beam resists shear forces, while the horizontal sections (flanges) resist bending moments. H-beams are typically produced through hot rolling, extrusion, or welding processes and are available in various sizes and grades.

Chemistry Typical:

The chemical composition of stainless steel H-beams varies depending on the grade, but common grades include:

  • Austenitic Stainless Steels (e.g., 304, 316):

    • Iron (Fe): Balance
    • Chromium (Cr): 16-18% (304), 16-18% (316)
    • Nickel (Ni): 8-10.5% (304), 10-14% (316)
    • Manganese (Mn): Up to 2%
    • Silicon (Si): Up to 1%
    • Carbon (C): 0.08% max (304), 0.08% max (316)
    • Molybdenum (Mo) (in 316): 2-3%
  • Duplex Stainless Steels (e.g., 2205):

    • Iron (Fe): Balance
    • Chromium (Cr): 22-23%
    • Nickel (Ni): 4.5-6.5%
    • Molybdenum (Mo): 3-3.5%
    • Manganese (Mn): Up to 2%
    • Silicon (Si): Up to 1%
  • Ferritic Stainless Steels (e.g., 430):

    • Iron (Fe): Balance
    • Chromium (Cr): 16-18%
    • Carbon (C): 0.12% max
    • Manganese (Mn): Up to 1%
    • Silicon (Si): Up to 1%

Stainless steel H-beams are produced according to various international standards, including:

  • ASTM A276: Standard specification for stainless steel bars and shapes.
  • ASTM A484/A484M: Standard specification for general requirements for stainless steel bars, billets, and forgings.
  • ASTM A240/A240M: Standard specification for chromium and chromium-nickel stainless steel plate, sheet, and strip for pressure vessels and for general applications.
  • EN 10088-3: European standard for stainless steels.
  • JIS G4303: Japanese standard for stainless steel bars.


Key features of stainless steel H-beams include:

  • Corrosion Resistance: High resistance to rust and corrosion, making them suitable for harsh environments.
  • Strength and Durability: High tensile and yield strength ensures structural integrity and long service life.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of applications across various industries.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Attractive appearance with a variety of surface finishes.
  • Workability: Good formability and machinability, allowing for complex shapes and structures.
  • Heat Resistance: Excellent performance at high temperatures, particularly in grades like 304, 316, and duplex.
  • Low Maintenance: Requires minimal upkeep due to its corrosion resistance and durability.
  • Recyclability: Environmentally friendly, as stainless steel can be fully recycled.
  • Magnetic Properties: Varies by grade, with non-magnetic properties in austenitic grades and magnetic properties in ferritic and some duplex grades.
