# CALCULATIONS

## STAINLESS STEEL WEIGHT CALCULATOR

• Weight of SS Pipe:
OD(mm)- Wall thickness (mm) x Wall thick (mm) x 0.0248 = Wt./mtr
OD(mm)- Wall thickness (mm) x Wall thick (mm) x 0.00756 = Wt./feet Weight of
• SS Round Bar:
DIA (mm) x DIA (mm) x 0.00623 = Wt./mtr
DIA (mm) x DIA (mm) x 0.0019 = Wt./feet
•  Weight of SS Square Bar:
Sq. (mm) x Sq. (mm) x 0.00788 = Wt./mtr
Sq. (mm) x Sq. (mm) x 0.0024 = Wt./feet
• Weight of Hexagonal Bar:
A/F (mm) x A/F (mm) x 0.00680 = Wt./mtr
A/F (mm) x A/F (mm) x 0.002072 = Wt./feet
• Weight of SS Flat Bar:
Width (mm) x Thick (mm) x 0.00798 = Wt./mtr
Width (mm) x Thick (mm) x 0.00243 = Wt./feet
• Weight of SS Circle:
Dia (mm) x Dia (mm) x Thick (mm) : 160 = Gms./pc
Dia (mm) x Dia (mm) x Thick (mm) x 0.0000063 = Kg./pc
• Weight of SS Sheets & Plates:
Length (mtrs.) x Width (mtrs) x Thick (mm) x 8 = Kg./Sheet
Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Thick (mm) x 3/4 = Kg./Sheet
• Weight of Brass Pipe Copper Pipe:
O.D. (mm) – Thick (mm) x Thick (mm) x 0.0260 = Wt./mtr
O.D. (mm) – Thick (mm) x 0-0090 = Kg./ft
O.D. (mm) – Wt.(mm) x Wt. (mm) x 0.0345 = Wt./mtr
• Weight of Aluminium Pipe:
O.D. (mm) – Thick (mm) x Thick (mm) x 0.0083 = Wt./mtr
• Weight of Aluminium Sheet:
Length (mtr.) x Width (mtr.) x Thick (mm) x 2.69 = Wt./pc
• Weight for Conversion of Mtr To Feet:
Weight of 1 mtr x 3.2808 = Feet
•  Formula for Calculating Width of Sheet for making pipe:
Outer DIA – Wall Thickness x 22/7 Width of Sheet
• Formula for Calculating Principal Amount With Interest on Bank FDR:
400 + Rate of Interest : 400 x Principal Amount = Quarterely PA & I (Press = 4 times for yearly)
Honesty + Quality of Goods + Quick Service

# Why Stainless Steel?

Early in the development of this Chromium alloy steel when used for cutlery it was described as “Stainless steel”.

The description stainless steel was later adopted to cover a wide and ever growing family of steels with added metals such as Nickel for formability, Molybdenum for corrosion resistance and Copper to enhance properties for making fasteners and Titanium to stabilise.

The main demand for stainless steel really is for corrosion resistance, this will depend on selecting the right grade of stainless steel for the application. Even though stainless steel is designed to be corrosion resistant when correct selection is made this does not repel stains in anyway, this needs to be either brought about by a cleaning routine find out more here, or accept that in day to day usage there will be some build-up of contaminants on the surface. This can look unsightly and can ultimately lead to corrosion.

Stainless steel has many important properties over other non-corrosive materials, including its formability, resistance to fire and recyc­la­bility. Some more key properties are listed below:

• Corrosion resistance.
• High and low temperature resistance.
• Ease of fabrication.
• Strength.
• Aesthetic appeal.
• Hygienic properties
• Stainless steel is a durable
• low maintenance
• Recyclable
• High scrap value.
• Many surface finishes
• Magnetic & non magnetic
• Low life cycle cost

Stainless steel families are named according to their metal­lur­gical micros­truc­ture and are named the following:

## Precipi­tation Hardening steels

Note there are a wide range of stainless steels Austenitic, Ferritic, Martensitic and Duplex all offering many solutions and grades to meet industry requ­ire­ments. Careful selection is important, Matrix Metal & Alloys can help with this and offer options in stainless steel wire, coil, strip and plate to meet your needs. When “stainless steel” was invented it was a generic term designed primarily for the cutlery industry for cosmetic reasons. Since then it became a description for many different metals referred to as grades of stainless steel. Call: +91-9499949357
