DDQ (Deep drawing quality): refers to a material for deep drawing (punch) the use of, 304 DDQ stainless steel plate, more Ni has been added, which make deep drawing and deep-drawing effect better, that is what we call “soft stainless steel”
The main feature of DDQ stainless steel material is a high elongation (≧ 53%), low hardness (≦ 170HV), internal grain grading between 7.0 to 8.0, has excellent deep drawing excellent performance. If the elongation rate can not reach to a certain point, in the processing of deep-drawing, products is easily to show crack which will increase the cost of manufacturers.

PVC film is one of the most important factor when purchasing stainless steel material. Basically, 3 types of PVC films are typically applied.
PE50/PE80 black and white film
This is the most widely used film, the thickness normally ranges from 50 micron to 80 microns. There will not be any special function except protection.,
Laser Film(Novacel 4228)
Laser cutting is often applied as a downstream processing. Laser film is a film that can undertake high temperature. If clients apply the wrong pvc, after laser cutting, the pvc will be wrinkled and sticky to the surface.
There are normally 2 types of blue transparent film, one is the for deep drawing, another one is normal protection film.
Stainless Steel sheet/Plates Packing and Loading Solution
The edge part should be clean and slit, no residues left.
Back side kraft paper
To make sure there is less moisture going into the pallet, water proof kraft paper should be applied.
Standard sheet package
A layer of wooden plate will be put on the top of the pallet. And 3*2 steel strip will be applied.
Block and bundles
Wooden blocks and bundles will apply on the loading of the pallets.
If there are too many pallet in one column，the top part also need be strengthened.
Wooden box package
For stainless steel mirror sheet, we can also apply wooden box.
Normally, different mills will apply 3 types tolerance, like 1.0mm, there will be 0.91-0.92mm/0.94-0.96mm/ 0.98-1.01mm. 3 stages to apply for different application.
Width tolerance mainly depends on the slitting and cutting machine. We use Taiwan and Italy machinery, which can guarantee +/-0.05 to +/-0.1mm
Diagonal Tolerance is a key factor to show whether the cut is correct or not. The normal tolerance is +/-2mm。
