Chromium and nickel give stainless steel itsstain resistance and attribute to the hardness of the metal.This makes bending stainless steel with common hand toolsdifficult and a sheet metal brake is often required,although one technique to bend stainless steel using handtools works well on shorter length bends.
Likewise, can you bend stainless steel pipe? Bending Stainless Steel Tubing: A FewConsiderations If the bend has a tight radius, thetubing can be bent on a rotary-draw bender through aprocess called mandrel tube bending. Both welded andseamless tubing can be curved.

Can steel be bent?
Most steel bars are either hot-rolled orcold-rolled; a cold rolled bar is shinier than a hot rolled bar,but is also harder to bend. Stainless steel is evenharder to bend. The stronger the steel, the more thebend will approximate a "V", while the weaker thesteel, the more the bend will look like a"U."
