Es wird aufgrund seiner hervorragenden Beständigkeit gegen interkristalline Korrosion, seiner guten Kaltverformbarkeit, seiner guten Tiefziehfähigkeit und seiner Schweißbarkeit häufig verwendet. Where high strength is required at temperatures above 500°C and up to 800°C grade 304H is recommended. Not suited for application areas involving sea water. It is used in heavy gauge components for improved weldability. Stress corrosion cracking can occur above 60°C. Machining can be enhanced by using the following rules: Cutting edges must be kept sharp. Hot Working Fabrication methods like forging, that involving hot working should occur after uniform heating to 1149-1260°C.

With a large stock range and excellent processing capabilities we are able to supply most projects whether stock items or custom made products.

Heat Treatment 304 stainless steel cannot be hardened by heat treatment.

Recommended filler rods and electrodes for stainless steel 304 is grade 308 stainless steel.

Polishes well and is suited for deep drawing.

Hot Working Fabrication methods, like forging, that involve hot working should occur after uniform heating to 1149-1260°C.

The surface state has a relatively large influence on the corrosion resistance of the steel, so that the polished surface generally has superior corrosion resistance than the rough surface.
