HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT 304L STAINLESS STEEL?

Jawaysteel Stainless inventory includes Alloy 304L ( S30403), in sheet, sheet coil, plate, plate coil, round bar, processed flat bar and tubular products. Alloy 304L is ideally suited for home and commercial applications.

GENERAL PROPERTIES

Alloy 304L a T-300 series stainless steel austenitic, which has a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Type 304L has a carbon maximum is 0.030. It is the standard “18/8 stainless” that is commonly found in pans and cooking tools. Alloys 304L is the most versatile and widely used alloy in the stainless steel family. Ideal for a wide variety of home and commercial applications, Alloys 304L exhibits excellent corrosion resistance and has a high ease of fabrication, outstanding formability. The austenitic stainless steels are also considered to be the most weldable of the high-alloy steels and can be welded by all fusion and resistance welding processes.
Specifications:  UNS S30403
