Stainless Steel 304L

Stainless Steel 304L (2)

Stainless steel 304L have very much alike substance and mechanical properties like stainless steel 304 and are frequently included on a solitary material test endorsement when the genuine properties of a stainless steel plate meet the criteria of both sorts. This is an exceptionally normal event. Sort 304L is a variety of Type 304 and has a lower carbon content which enhances weldability and brings down the danger of diminished erosion resistance around the weld. Sort 304L likewise has a marginally lower yield and elasticity than Type 304.

Compound 304L a T-300 arrangement stainless steel austenitic, which has at least 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Sort 304L has a carbon greatest is 0.030. It is the standard “18/8 stainless” that is regularly found in skillet and cooking devices. Compounds 304L is the most adaptable and broadly utilized amalgam as a part of the stainless steel gang. Perfect for a wide assortment of home and business applications, Alloys 304L shows superb erosion resistance and has a high simplicity of manufacture, exceptional formability. The austenitic stainless steels are additionally thought to be the most weldable of the high-combination steels and can be welded by all combination and resistance welding procedures.


Alloy 304L Stainless Steel is used in a wide variety of home and commercial applications, including:

  • Food processing equipment, particularly in beer brewing, milk processing, and wine making
  • Kitchen benches, sinks, troughs, equipment, and appliances
  • Architectural trim and molding
  • Automotive and aerospace structural use
  • Construction material in large buildings
  • Chemical containers, including for transport
  • Heat exchangers
  • Nuts, bolts, screws, and other fasteners in the marine environment
  • Dyeing industry
  • Woven or welded screens for mining, quarrying & water filtration
