Stainless Steel Tolerances

Stainless Sales Corporation carries stock in a wide range of sizes and gauge tolerances. The gauge tolerance is defined as the allowable amount of variation in thickness throughout the coil in both transverse and longitudinal directions.

We order material to the tightest tolerances possible to reduce variation. Below are some of the standard gauges and tolerances for cold rolled stainless steel.

Cold rolled stainless steel gauges & tolerances:

Gauge Nom. Tolerance
7 0.1870 +/-.007
8 0.1650 +/-.007
9 0.1510 +/-.007
10 0.1350 +/-.006
11 0.1200 +/-.005
12 0.1050 +/-.005
13 0.0900 +/-.005
14 0.0750 +/-.004
16 0.0600 +/-.004
18 0.0480 +/-.003
20 0.0360 +/-.003
22 0.0300 +/-.003
24 0.0240 +/-.002
26 0.0180 +/-.002
28 0.0150 +/-.0015

Hot rolled stainless steel standard gauges & tolerances:

Gauge Nom. Tolerance
4 0.2500 +.01375/-.010
6 0.1875 +.01375/-.010
