We do quite a bit of custom work in 2 inch diameter stainless steel standoffs. What can really make the difference among suppliers to consider is (i) the type of stainless steel round stock they are manufacturing from, (ii) the manufacturing flexibility to accommodate your design needs, (iii) the finish and (iv) the lead time.
Input Material for 2 Inch Stainless Standoffs
At Monarch, we use solid 303 Alloy Stainless Rounds as the base material for our standoffs. This provides powerful corrosion resistance. From time to time customers will request that we use a 316 marine grade stainless steel if the application will be in a particularly corrosive environment.
The stock finish, and by far the most common finish we offer for stainless standoffs, is a brushed finish. A brushed finish is a beautiful grained finish in the material with a little shine to it. Another popular finish is a mirror polished finish. Because the base material is stainless steel, you don’t have to worry about coating or painting the material.
