“Stainless Is Painless” Or The Truth About Bending Stainless Tubing From Classic Tube


Lancaster, NY - Many enthusiasts are under the impression that stainless steel tubing is relatively impossible to bend or correctly flare. That depends on the hardness of the stainless you’re working with. There are several degrees of hardness available in stainless tubing, so if you’re planning on doing your own bending, you should know the difference. Also, the degree of hardness does not mean it will do the job any better than it’s softer cousins. Stainless IS stainless and will virtually last forever unless damaged in some kind of mishap.
The American mill that supplies Classic Tube creates US strip stainless to make our tubing. It is specifically made at that mill to our specifications, which call for certain SAE (Society Of Automotive Engineers) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) specs, to make it incredibly strong but soft enough so it will not crack during flaring or crimp during bending. Classic Tube performs a huge amount of destructive testing to ensure that their tubing meets the highest standards, plus requires material certification proof that the steel is made in America.
Consumers have a lot of preconceived notions that stainless tubing is difficult to work with, and that’s due to their using of industrial grade stainless steel not specifically made for bending and flaring. Classic Tube’s pre-bent stainless or bulk stainless tubing is easy for the do-it-yourselfer to bend and also easy to flare. If you’re doing custom bending Classic Tube has the stainless for your project, and we guarantee it will bend and flare easily and accurately!
