304L Stainless Steel
Overview of 304L Stainless Steel
304L stainless steel is 300 series austenitic stainless steel that is one of the most widely used metal materials due to its corrosion resistance and nice fabrication.
Both 304 and 304L stainless steel can be used for many similar applications and the differences are minor, but they really do exist.
304L stainless steel has lower carbon contents than 304 stainless steel.
Futures of 304L Stainless Steel
The following are some of the features that make 304L stainless steel a popular choice for many different industries:
- Low Carbon Content – The low carbon content in 304L Stainless Steel makes it easy to weld or form by bending or rolling during fabrication.
- High Corrosion Resistance – The high corrosion resistance property makes this alloy ideal for use in marine environments, wastewater treatment plants and other locations where exposure to harsh chemicals can occur.
- High Strength – 304L Stainless Steel has a tensile strength rating between 60 ksi (414 MPa) and 70 ksi (483 MPa). This high strength allows it to withstand high stresses without deforming or yielding easily.
