Stainless foil

I assume many of you are aware of the stainless foil that is used in heat treating, in which one wraps the object to be so treated to control
oxidation and decarb, a necessity without a controlled atmosphere.
I have a project to do for a friend that will require heat treat. I have the furnace, but not the foil. I would like to buy a roll, but have never researched to find the best deal, not having had a need until now. Do any of you know of a source at a respectable price? (For me, not the seller!) :-)
Thanks!
Harold

I've never bought (or priced) stainless foil, but the first place I'd look would be Enco:
http://www.use-enco.com/
Not only are Enco's prices usually the most competitive among the large tooling suppliers, but they often offer free shipping promotions which can add to your savings. Currently, Enco's promotion code is: NRFUP55 (Free UPS Shipping on orders of $50 or more).
Hope this helps, Michael

McMasterCarr has a fine selection. You can get one bag starting at $1.97 or a 10' roll starting at $20.56. (page 3434 of cat#110)Order today and heat treat tommorrow. They have the world's best service.

I last bought it a long time ago, but the outfit was Park Thermal. They used to have quite a few outlets all over North America. I found them easy to deal with. Place is like a candy store, though.
BTW (and you may already know this) the stainless foil for heat treating has a bit of titanium as an oxygen grabber ie it isn't just one of the stock normal 300 series stainlesses. If all you need is a couple of feet, I could try mailing you some, though it might run afoul of the border. (Don't know what the US customs would think x-raying a package that just had stainless foil as contents in 8 1/2 x 11 manila envelope). If you'd like me to try, let me know.

No, I wasn't aware of the alloy content, and I appreciate your mention of the titanium. I gather it's alloy 321 from your description.
Very kind offer, Adam, but I'd rather not put anyone out. It would be particularly inconvenient for folks north of us. Just getting your sound information pleases me enough, providing me with a sense of direction, as have the others.
I have been up to my eyeballs of late, with precious little time to do any research, but I'll get to it eventually, and will attempt to check all the recommended source in the process. I want to buy enough to have on hand for future use, so it will be worth the effort.
Regards,
Harold

Check. I've never regretted buying 100 foot rolls, even though I only go through five or ten feet a year. Not all that expensive, and great to have it there, when wanted.
