304 stainless steel is a common material in stainless steel, with a density of 7.93 g/cm³; it is also called 18/8 stainless steel in the industry, meaning it contains more than 18% chromium and more than 8% nickel; high-temperature resistance of 800 ℃, with good processing performance, With the characteristics of high toughness, it is widely used in industry and furniture decoration industry and food and medical industry.
304 stainless steel is the most widely used chromium-nickel stainless steel. As a widely used steel, it has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low-temperature strength, and mechanical properties; good hot workability such as stamping and bending, and no heat treatment Hardening phenomenon (use temperature -196℃～800℃).
The most important elements in 304 are Ni and Cr. The Ni element is very important, which directly determines the corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel and its value, but it is not limited to these two elements. Specific requirements are specified by product standards. The common judgment in the industry is that as long as the Ni content is greater than 8% and the Cr content is greater than 18%, it can be considered 304 stainless steel. This is why the industry calls this type of stainless steel 18/8 stainless steel. In fact, the relevant product standards have very clear regulations for 304, and these product standards have some differences for different shapes of stainless steel. To determine whether a material is 304 stainless steel, it must meet the requirements of each element in the product standard. As long as one does not meet the requirements, it cannot be called 304 stainless steel.
