304 Stainless Steel | Performance Profile

304 stainless steel has good corrosion resistance, including acid, alkali, salt and other corrosive media, as well as organic acids, alcohol and other organic solvents corrosion.

At present, the petrochemical industry, light industrial manufacturing, power industry, food manufacturing and other fields can see the existence of this steel. It has good stress resistance, corrosion resistance and good low temperature toughness.

What is 304 stainless steel

This type of stainless steel is a common type of austenitic stainless steel, also known as 18/8 stainless steel. It contains at least 50% iron and a maximum carbon content of 0.08%. In addition, steel also contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. At present, SS304 is used in industry, auto parts, household products, furniture decoration, agriculture and other industries, with good comprehensive performance.

Performance Profile

The use and application of stainless steel machined parts are usually determined by their properties and characteristics, which also affect their metalworking process.

– Good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties.

– Good stamping and bending properties

– High machinability and weldability

– Non-hardening by heat treatment

– Resistant to high temperature of 800℃ and high toughness

– Modulus :193-200Gp or 28,000-29000ksi

– Thermal conductivity: 16.2W/M.K or 112BTU-IN/HRF

– It is a food-grade stainless steel suitable for food processing, storage and transportation.

Why 304 stainless steel is better

1.When you need to make an outdoor fence that is exposed to different elements, this steel can extend the life of the product and make it safer.

2.It has greater strength and hardness.

3.It can be used in environments containing large amounts of corrosive elements, such as seawater.

4.This type of material is cheaper and more cost-effective than other steels.
