Stainless steel is an alloy of iron, chromium and nickel. It has many useful properties such as corrosion resistance, heat resistance and toughness. It can be used for many different types of applications and industries.
SUS 304 is an austenitic stainless steel grade that contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. This alloy is widely used due to its durability and its ability to withstand oxidizing acids.
It has great corrosion resistance in any environment and is also easy to clean. This makes it a popular material for a variety of uses such as kitchens and food storage.
This type of stainless steel has excellent workability and can be subjected to various fusion processes without forming cracks. This is because it has a high level of induced martensite. It is also non-magnetic and has a high strength.
For high-strength applications, this grade is typically rolled into sheets, bars or other shapes before welding to maximize its strength and durability. It can be welded by standard welding techniques. It has good cold working properties, too. It can withstand a wide range of temperatures and is an ideal material for refrigeration, heat exchangers, air conditioners and furnaces.
