304 stainless steel is the most widely used chromium-nickel stainless steel. As a widely used steel, it has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties; it has good hot workability such as stamping and bending, and has no heat treatment. Hardening phenomenon (use temperature -196 ° C ~ 800 ° C). Corrosion-resistant in the atmosphere, if it is an industrial atmosphere or a heavily polluted area, it needs to be cleaned in time to avoid corrosion. Suitable for food processing, storage and transportation. Has good processability and weldability. Plate heat exchangers, corrugated pipes, household goods (category 1 and 2 tableware, cabinets, indoor pipelines, water heaters, boilers, bathtubs), auto parts (windshield wipers, mufflers, molded products), medical appliances, building materials, chemicals, food industry , agriculture, ship parts, etc. The 304 stainless steel whose content is strictly controlled can also be called food grade 304 stainless steel.
Most of the use requirements are to maintain the original appearance of the building for a long time. When determining the type of stainless steel to be selected, the main considerations are the required aesthetic standards, the corrosiveness of the local atmosphere, and the cleaning system to be adopted. Increasingly, however, other applications simply seek structural integrity or impermeability. For example, roofs and side walls of industrial buildings. In these applications, the owner’s cost of construction may be more important than aesthetics, and the surface is not very clean. The effect of using 304 stainless steel in a dry indoor environment is quite good. However, to maintain its appearance outdoors in both the country and the city, frequent washing is required. In heavily polluted industrial areas and coastal areas, the surface will be very dirty and even rusted.
However, to obtain the aesthetic effect in the outdoor environment, nickel-containing stainless steel is required. Therefore, 304 stainless steel is widely used in curtain walls, side walls, roofs and other construction purposes, but in severely corrosive industries or marine atmospheres, it is best to use 316 stainless steel. With stainless steel sliding doors, people have fully realized the advantages of using stainless steel in structural applications. There are several design criteria that include 304 and 316 stainless steel. Because “duplex” stainless steel 2205 has integrated good atmospheric corrosion resistance with high tensile strength and elastic limit strength, this steel is also included in the European standards. Product Shapes In fact, stainless steel is manufactured in a full range of standard metal shapes and sizes, as well as many special shapes. The most commonly used products are made of sheet and strip steel, and special products are also produced from medium and thick plates, for example, the production of hot-rolled structural steel and extruded structural steel. There are also round, oval, square, rectangular and hexagonal welded or seamless steel pipes and other forms of products, including profiles, bars, wires and castings.
