316 stainless steel foil

Shimfer produces 316 stainless steel foil with improved corrosion resistance and excellent resistance to electricity and heat. We achieve this by using specific qualitative and quantitative chemical properties to produce stainless steel foil. The advanced facilities at Shimfer allow us to manufacture exceptionally thin and flat stainless steel foil. It is these chemical properties that afford it an impressive corrosion resistance and high creep strength. An addition of molybdenum gives the alloy an improved resistance in humid atmospheres. A more detailed property composition is shown in the table below:

316 stainless steel strip foil at Shimfer is available to be manufactured in wide range of sizes as per customer request. Generally, we are able to produce stainless steel strip foil of the following sizes:

  • Thickness that ranges from 0.05 to 1.5 mm
  • Width that ranges from 2 to 600 mm
  • Other sizes can be delivered on request.

Due to the quality and properties of the Shimfer 316 stainless steel strip foils, It is possible to apply the stainless strip foils to various production uses. The material is manufactured with the goal of providing sheer stability and strength, high temperature resistance with minimum corrosion under atmospheric humid, as such it can be used in high demanding structures like in the manufacturing of turbine machines and high heating components. The material is particularly suitable for:

  • Aerospace system
  • Surgical implants
  • Heat exchangers
  • Precision shims

We offer a variety of edge finishes for 316 stainless steel foil. The finishes on offer include:

  • Mill edge
  • Slit edge
  • Round edge
  • Deburred edge
