waht is 304 stainless steel plate?

Date:Jul 13, 2019

304 stainless steel is a common material in stainless steel with a density of 7.93 g/cm3, also known as 18/8 stainless steel. With high temperature resistance of 800 °C, it has good processing performance and high toughness. It is widely used in industrial and furniture decoration industry and food medical industry.

304 is a versatile stainless steel that is widely used to make equipment and parts that require good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability). In order to maintain the corrosion resistance inherent in stainless steel, the steel must contain more than 18% chromium and more than 8% nickel. 304 stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel produced in accordance with American ASTM standards.

The most important elements in 304 are Ni, Cr, but are not limited to these two elements. The specific requirements are stipulated by the product standard. Common judgments in the industry consider that as long as the Ni content is greater than 8% and the Cr content is greater than 18%, it can be considered as 304 stainless steel. This is why the industry calls this type of stainless steel 18/8 stainless steel. In fact, the relevant product standards have very clear regulations for 304, and these product standards have some differences for different shapes of stainless steel.

304 stainless steel is the most widely used chromium-nickel stainless steel. As a widely used steel, it has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties. It has good hot workability such as stamping and bending. , no heat treatment hardening (use temperature -196 °C ~ 800 °C). Corrosion resistant in the atmosphere, if it is an industrial atmosphere or heavily polluted areas, it needs to be cleaned in time to avoid corrosion. Suitable for processing, storage and transportation of food. It Has good processing properties and solderability.
