Add in a nice finish with the ability to be either flexible are hard and in different gauges, you have a world of applications at your fingertips. Stainless steel sheet is often used to coat or protect another material. An example would be to use it as a kitchen workspace top instead of an expensive piece of granite. Not only can you build it to your exact specifications, but it will save money not only in original installation costs and materials but also in cleaning supplies. It will not chip or flake like enamel does, which can result in costly or time-consuming repairs. Stainless steel sheet will not rust or corrode, either, and it resists staining for a nice finish that will last for years.
