The Short Introduction of 304 Stainless Steel

304 stainless steel is a common material in stainless steel with a density of 7.93 g/cm3, also known as 18/8 stainless steel. With high temperature resistance of 800 °C, it has good processing performance and high toughness. It is widely used in industrial and furniture decoration industry and food medical industry.

Among the common marking methods on the market are 06Cr19Ni10 and SUS304, of which 06Cr19Ni10 generally represents the national standard production, 304 generally represents the ASTM standard production, and SUS 304 represents the Japanese standard production.

304 is a versatile stainless steel that is widely used to make equipment and parts that require good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability). In order to maintain the corrosion resistance inherent in stainless steel, the steel must contain more than 18% chromium and more than 8% nickel. 304 stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel produced in accordance with American ASTM standards.
