What is the difference between 201, 304 and 430 stainless steel?

Jun 08, 2020

304 is a versatile and widely used stainless steel material, which is widely used to make equipment and parts that require good comprehensive performance (corrosion resistance and formability). It can overcome general rust in buildings, can resist food processing medium type 304L (low carbon), has good nitric acid resistance, and is corroded (but may be corrosive at high temperatures containing high concentrations of acids and chlorides) and can resist organic Compounds, dyes and a wide variety of inorganic compounds. Durable medium temperature and concentration of sulfuric acid, widely used liquid gas storage tanks, low temperature equipment (304N), appliances and other consumer products, kitchen equipment, hospital equipment, transportation vehicles, wastewater treatment equipment.

Type 430 has a lower content of alloy than Type 304. It can be used for high polishing decoration in a mild atmosphere. It can also be used in nitric acid and food processing equipment.

The difference between stainless steel 201 and 304 1. Specifications: Commonly used stainless steel plates are divided into 201 and 304 models. Actually, they are partly different. 304 is better in quality, but expensive, and 201 is worse. 304 is imported stainless steel plate, 201 is domestic stainless steel plate.
