304 stainless steel chemical composition and uses

Sep 28, 2017

304 stainless steel (18Cr-8Ni) count is a common use of steel, it has good corrosion resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties, tensile strength, good heat resistance, 304 stainless steel in the air or chemical corrosive medium height can resist corrosion belongs to a kind of high alloy steel. Stainless steel surface is not treated by plating and so on, but it has beautiful appearance and corrosion resistance. It belongs to a kind of steel in many ways, representing the properties of 13 steel, chromium nickel steel and high alloy steel 18-8. Punching, bending and other thermal processing, no heat treatment hardening phenomenon (non magnetic, with super temperature -196 to 800 DEG C).

304 is a versatile stainless steel, which is widely used in manufacturing equipment and parts requiring good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability).

304 stainless steel is a brand of stainless steel produced according to the American ASTM code. 304 stainless steel plate, equivalent to China's 0Cr19Ni9 (0Cr18Ni9) stainless steel. 304 chromium 19%, containing nickel 9%.

304: stainless steel tube is widely used in household products (tableware, kitchen cabinet, indoor pipeline, water heater, boiler, bath), is widely used in auto parts, ship parts, medical appliances, building materials, chemical, food industry, agriculture etc.. Use is more common.
