What are the benefits of 304 stainless steel?

Stainless steel enjoys a ubiquitous presence in industrial, commercial, and domestic domains. Grade 304, belonging to the austenitic stainless-steel family, is widely popular in the industrial sector. It is a chromium-nickel austenitic alloy with a standard “18/8” composition. It also has other alloying elements like carbon, manganese, and silicon. The low carbon content in Grade 304 helps reduce the risk of carbide precipitation in alloys.

Grade 304 has high production and consumption rates as compared to other grades. It accounts for 80% of the total amount of stainless steel used. We provide you with a high-quality 304 stainless steel tube to fit your industrial requirements.

The Cr-Ni content in Grade 304 results in different variants for the stainless-steel alloy. These include 304, 304H, and 304L. 304L has ultra-low carbon content, about 0.03% by weight or even less. The lower the carbon content, the better is its stress-corrosion resistance capability. 304 L can prevent intergranular corrosion. The H in 304H indicates its ability to function at higher temperatures. Carbon content is not lesser than 0.04% in 304H. 304type has carbon between 304H and 304L.
