Commercial Uses of Stainless Steel 303 And 304

With its unparalleled resistance to rust, the 300 stainless steel string is, undoubtedly, the most widely used grade for industrial purposes. So, what makes it an exceptional selection for many commercial applications? Here are a few things you will need to know.

The 300 stainless steel string (types 303, 304 and 316) is much more corrosion resistant when compared with the 400 series, is non-magnetic and may only be hardened through cold working. It’s collectively called the “18-8” because it contains approximately 18% chromium and 8 percent nickel.

If you’re not yet conscious of it, the inclusion of the alloying elements to iron makes it especially resistant to corrosion. So, while there’s very little difference among the 18-8 types, the small variation in their chemical makeup makes them ideally suited to certain applications.

Type 303

Sort 303 or “A1” has the exact same corrosion resistance as kind 304 but is slightly less resistant in comparison with type 316. All of them have similar mechanical properties but the sulfur content of type 303 allows for easier machining. As such, it’s used for applications that require a good surface finish. Gears, shafts, aircraft fittings and bushings are generally made out of type 303 stainless steel.

Type 304

This is the most commonly used of stainless steel ranges and is ideally suited to applications that expose it to mildly corrosive chemicals such as those found in meats, fruits, vegetables, and milk. Additionally, it is resistant to sterilizing solutions, food dyes, and a broad assortment of organic and inorganic substances.

As such, it’s widely utilized in the food processing industry and in the production of kitchenware (sinks and tabletops, refrigerators, cooking appliances, pots and pans, and tableware).
