One of the most widely used standards for stainless steel strip is the ASTM A240 specification for general applications.
ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is an international organization that develops and publishes technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services.
This is to indicate the equivalent stainless steel strip material in JIS standard and ASTM standard. However, it is to be noted that this is reference only for customers’ convenience and there might be differences in detailed composition etc.
Let’s keep reading.
ASTM A240 Grade 304: 304 stainless steel strip is the most commonly used grade of stainless steel, with good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and formability.
ASTM A240 Grade 316L: 316L stainless steel strip is a higher corrosion resistance grade of stainless steel, commonly used in marine and chemical processing applications.
ASTM A240 Grade 310S: 310S stainless steel strip is a stabilized stainless steel grade with excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion, commonly used in high-temperature applications.
Other ASTM standards related to stainless steel include ASTM A276 (standard specification for stainless steel bars and shapes), ASTM A312 (standard specification for seamless, welded, and heavily cold worked austenitic stainless steel pipes), and ASTM A554 (standard specification for welded stainless steel mechanical tubing).
It’s important to note that there are many different grades and types of stainless steel available, each with its own set of properties and characteristics. Therefore, it’s important to consult the specific ASTM standard and grade requirements when selecting a stainless steel material for a particular application.
Applications of ASTM Stainless Steel Strips
ASTM standard stainless steel strip is the most popular stainless steel material class due to their properties.
They are strong, have high corrosion resistance, high heat resistance and formability making them an excellent material in architectural, industrial and transport sector.
The ASTM standard stainless steel strip can also be used in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries due to their high resistance to corrosion which makes them require low maintenance, durability and high clean ability.
