What is Type 304 stainless steel?
18% chromium and 8% nickel
Type 304 stainless steel, often referred to as "18/8" steel, is the most commonly used stainless steel variant. It belongs to the austenitic class, comprising 18% chromium and 8% nickel. This composition delivers excellent forming and welding characteristics, along with remarkable resistance to corrosion.
It is extensively utilized in various applications like kitchen appliances, architectural panelling, and piping. Type 304 provides strong durability and aesthetic appeal, while withstanding most oxidizing acids. However, it's susceptible to pitting in chloride environments and isn't heat-resistant compared to some higher grade stainless steels.
Overall, it's a versatile, cost-effective solution for a wide range of industries.
