Stainless Steel Tags

Inland Products produces and stocks stainless steel tags in many shapes and sizes and can also make them custom to your specifications. Blank stock sizes will usually ship out the same day because there is no further processing involved. Engraved or custom made tags require additional processing time, which can vary from 3-7 workdays.

What makes stainless steel so durable?

Stainless steel is produced by melting iron ore and carbon in a furnace and mixing in different types of metal alloys to achieve the desired properties in the end product. We all know stainless steel does not rust, but it is also very resistant to corrosion from exposure to harsh chemicals, acids, and caustic materials, and it is also a very tough and hard metal. These qualities make stainless steel an ideal material for identification tags.

Do you offer different grades of stainless steel?

Inland products offers our customers the choice of three different grades, each of which has been made using a different mixture of alloys to give each grade differing properties and capabilities.
 
The first grade is Type 430 and it is the least expensive and most commonly used because for most applications it is as good as any other grade of stainless steel. It will not rust and is very strong and heat resistant but lacks the very high corrosion resistance that better grades possess. Type 430 is a magnetic steel meaning that a magnet will stick to it as it will to regular steel because it has fewer alloys and more iron ore in it unlike the better grades that have a higher alloy content with less iron ore and as a result are both non-magnetic.
 
The second grade we offer is Type 304 and it is a little more expensive not only because we have to pay more for the material from our supplier but because it is a harder material and more difficult and slower for us to process. Tooling used to process Type 304 stainless steel whether it is cutting, punching, blanking, shearing or rotary engraving takes a beating and needs to be sharpened and or replaced more often which ads significantly to our processing cost.
 
The best grade of stainless steel we offer is Type 316 and it is again a little more expensive for the same reasons. Type 316 is only needed for the most extreme conditions that may cause corrosion of lesser grades such as constant exposure to strong acids or alkaline materials. We also encounter situations where Type 316 is specified in an engineered drawing and must be used to meet specifications for the project.
