This grade is commonly known as “18-8” stainless steel, as it contains 18% chromium and 8% Nickel. 304 stainless steels are widely used to resists ordinary rusting in most applications. Metline Industries is one of the most trusted stockholder of stainless steel 304 plates and stainless steel 304L plates.
From standard to special finishes, our specialty is to supply stainless steel 304 plates in No.1 hot rolled mill finish. SS 304 No.1 finish plates are readily available in stock for supply to equipment manufacturing companies.
From standard to special finishes, our specialty is to supply 304 sheets in various finishes including 2B, No.4, BA, Mirror and other with or without protective coating. Stainless steel 304 BA sheets and 304 No.4 finish sheets are readily available in stock for supply to refrigeration equipment manufacturing companies.
Grade 304L is widely used by the fabrication industry and all standard welding techniques can be used on 304L plates and 304L pipes. The “L” in 304L stands for “Low Carbon Content”, indicating a maximum carbon content of 0.035%. The “H” in 304H stands for “High Carbon Content”, indicating carbon content of not less than 0.04% and not more than 0.10%.
The tensile and yield strength of 304H stainless steel is greater than 304L, as the higher carbon content increases its strength. Stainless steel 304H grade pipes and plates are widely used for manufacturing boilers, pressure vessels and heat exchangers for fertilizer plants, chemical plants, petroleum refineries, and power generation plants.
