What are the Uses of 304 Stainless Steel?

Apr. 08, 2020

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 in the industry. High temperature resistance 800 ℃, with good processing performance and high toughness, widely used in industry and furniture decoration industry and food and the medical industry. 304 Stainless Steel Plate Suppliers to introduce you to the use of 304 stainless steel.

In general, 304 stainless steel is the most widely used chromium-nickel stainless steel. As versatile steel, it has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low-temperature strength, and mechanical properties; hot processing such as stamping and bending Good performance, no heat treatment hardening phenomenon (use temperature -196 ℃ ~ 800 ℃). It is resistant to corrosion in the atmosphere. If it is an industrial atmosphere or a heavily polluted area, it needs to be cleaned in time to avoid corrosion. Suitable for food processing, storage, and transportation. Has good processing performance and weldability. Plate heat exchangers, bellows, household products (category 1, 2 tableware, cabinets, indoor pipelines, water heaters, boilers, bathtubs), auto parts (windshield wipers, mufflers, molded products), medical appliances, building materials, chemicals, food industry, Agriculture, ship parts, etc. 304 stainless steel is food-grade stainless steel approved by the state.

Most use requirements are to maintain the original appearance of the building for a long time. When determining the type of stainless steel to be selected, the main considerations are the required aesthetic standards, the corrosivity of the local atmosphere, and the cleaning system to be used. However, other applications are increasingly seeking structural integrity or impermeability. For example, roofs and sidewalls of industrial buildings. In these applications, the owner's construction cost may be more important than aesthetics, and the surface may not be very clean. The effect of using 304 stainless steel in a dry indoor environment is quite good. However, in rural and urban areas, if you want to maintain its appearance outdoors, you need to wash it frequently. In heavily polluted industrial areas and coastal areas, the surface will be very dirty and even rusty.

But to obtain the aesthetic effect in the outdoor environment, nickel-containing stainless steel is required. Therefore, 304 stainless steel is widely used in curtain walls, sidewalls, roofs, and other construction purposes, but in the severely erosive industrial or marine atmosphere, it is best to use 316 stainless steel. Stainless steel sliding doors, people have fully realized the advantages of using stainless steel in structural applications. There are several design guidelines including 304 and 316 stainless steel. Because the "duplex" stainless steel 2205 has integrated good atmospheric corrosion resistance with high tensile strength and elastic limit strength, this type of steel is also included in the European guidelines. Product shape In fact, stainless steel is manufactured with all standard metal shapes and sizes, and there are many special shapes. The most commonly used products are made of thin plate and strip steel, and special products are also produced with medium and thick plates, for example, production of hot-rolled structural steel and extruded structural steel. And there are round, oval, square, rectangular and hexagonal welded pipe or seamless steel pipe and other forms of products, including profiles, bars, wires, and castings.

The price of 304 Stainless Steel Coil Price is moderate. China Stainless Steel Coils Factory can produce 304 stainless steel in large quantities for the production of daily products.
