304L Stainless Steel Casting

304L Stainless Steel Casting

304L stainless steel is commonly used in stainless steel casting. 304L Stainless Steel Casting has perfect corrosion resistance and has a high ease ability of fabrication, outstanding form-ability.

What is 304L stainless steel?

304L stainless steel, also known as ultra-low carbon stainless steel, is a versatile stainless steel material that is widely used to make equipment and parts that require good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability). Its Grade: 00Cr19Ni10 (0Cr18Ni10)

Chemical Composition %
P : ≤ 0.035
S : ≤ 0.03
Cr : 18.0 to 20.0
Ni : 8.0 to 10.0

2 advantages of 304L Stainless Steel Casting

Corrosion Resistance:Heat Resistance:
Resistance to corrosion in oxidizing environments is a result of the 18 to 19% chromium that the 304 alloys contain.Good oxidation resistance in intermittent service to 1600°F and in continuous service to 1690°F.
Resistance to moderately aggressive organic acids is a result of the 9 to 11% nickel that the 304 alloys contain.Continuous use of 304 in the 800-1580°F range is not recommended if subsequent aqueous corrosion resistance is important.
At times, alloy 304L may show a lower corrosion rate than the higher carbon Alloy 304; otherwise, the 304, 304L, and 304H may be considered to perform uniformly in most corrosive environments.Grade 304L is more resistant to carbide precipitation and can be heated into the above temperature range.
Alloy 304L is preferred for use in environments sufficiently corrosive to cause intergranular corrosion of welds and heat-affected zones on susceptible alloys.
