Stainless Steel grade 304 is one of the most commonly used alloys owing to its versatility. It is a standard 18/8 alloy available in various forms and finishes, when compared to other grades. Grade 304 pipes have a stable austenitic structure, which makes it possible to be deep drawn without immediate annealing.
UNS S30400 can be brake or roll formed into different components for industrial, transportation and architectural purposes. Grade 304 pipes are resistant to a wide range of corrosive media and atmospheric environments. Pitting and crevice corrosion can be of concern in warm chloride environments. 304 alloy may also undergo stress corrosion cracking at temperature above 60degree Celsius. High temperature strength executed by 304 grade pipes makes them usable in structural and pressure containing applications. 304 pipes are used in applications like food processing equipment, kitchen appliances, heat exchangers, Architectural panelling, Chemical containers, Threaded fastene
