The most widely used of the stainless and heat resisting steels. Offers good corrosion resistance to many chemicals as well as industrial atmospheres. Has very good formability and can be readily welded by all common methods.
- Yield Strength: 35 KSI
- Ultimate Tensile Strength: 85 KSI
- Elongation in 2": 55%
- Conforms to:
- ASTM A240
- AMS 551
304/304L is an extra low carbon variation of 304 and avoids carbide precipitation due to welding. Same corrosion resistance as 304 with slightly lower mechanical properties.
