What's the Difference between Cold Pressed Steel and Stainless Steel?

The maximum thickness of common CRS is 8mm. It is usually made from hot-rolled coils to produce beautiful and easy to use cold pressed steel. Each coil can reach 13.5 tons. Instead, stainless steel is different whose stainless steel does not have specified thickness. Its raw material is more than steel in general, nickel, chromium and molybdenum which all belong to metal. Stainless steel has corrosion resistance to some extent which will not be corroded by ordinary chemicals. Next, it will explicit the difference between cold pressed steel and stainless steel in detail.

1. Different functions

Because cold pressed steel has not been annealed, its hardness is very high (HRB > 90), and its mechanical processing performance is poor. Therefore, it can only be simply directed bending less than 90 degrees (perpendicular to the coiling direction). Stainless steel is characterized by excellent corrosion resistance, formation, compatibility and toughness over a wide temperature range.

2. Production method

cold pressed steel is made of hot rolled plate at room temperature, although it is also called cold rolled because rolling warms the plate during the process. Stainless steel are those steels which own air, steam, water and other weak corrosive medium resistance or stainlessness, which has various production methods.

3. Application

Cold-rolled steel is widely used in general structural parts and stamping parts of construction machinery, transportation machinery, construction machinery, lifting machinery, agricultural machinery and light industry civil and other industries.

Stainless steel is widely used in curtain wall, side wall, roof, household appliances and other construction purposes. Stainless steel itself has good corrosion resistance, and can maintain its excellent physical and mechanical properties at high temperature. It is also widely used in the field of 3D printing.
