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.|
