304, 304L, 304H, 304N, 304HN, 304LN 18-8 AUSTENITIC STAINLESS STEEL

ALSO SEE INFORMATION ON 304 ON OUR CASTING PAGE

Description

304/304L Austenitic Cr-Ni stainless steel. Better corrosion resistance than Type 302. High ductility, excellent drawing, forming, and spinning properties. Essentially non-magnetic, becomes slightly magnetic when cold worked. Low carbon content means less carbide precipitation in the heat-affected zone during welding and a lower susceptibility to intergranular corrosion.

304HN High Nitrogen 304 stainless steel. Austenitic Cr-Ni stainless steel. Nitrogen provides higher tensile and tensile yield strength without diminishing ductility, corrosion resistance, or nonmagnetic properties. Better corrosion resistance than Type 302. High ductility, excellent drawing, forming, and spinning properties. Essentially non-magnetic, becomes slightly magnetic when cold worked. Low carbon content means less carbide precipitation in the heat-affected zone during welding and a lower susceptibility to intergranular corrosion.
