304\304L Stainless Steel Round Bar


Alloy 304/304L is the most widely utilized “18-8” chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steel. It is an economical and versatile corrosion resistant alloy suitable for a wide range of general purpose applications. It is common practice for 304L to be dual certified as 304 and 304L. Alloy 304/304L resists atmospheric corrosion, as well as, moderately oxidizing and reducing environments. The alloy has excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion in the as-welded condition. Alloy 304/304L has excellent strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures. Alloy 304/304L is non-magnetic in the annealed condition. It can be easily welded and processed by standard shop fabrication practices.

Alloy 304L Stainless Steel is used in a wide variety of home and commercial applications, including: Food processing equipment, particularly in beer brewing, milk processing, and wine making, Kitchen benches, sinks, troughs, equipment, and appliances, Architectural trim and molding, Automotive and aerospace structural use, Construction material in large buildings, Chemical containers, including for transport, Heat exchangers, Nuts, bolts, screws, and other fasteners in the marine environment, Dyeing industry, Woven or welded screens for mining, quarrying & water filtration.
