STAINLESS STEEL 304

Posted by:Rain Time:2019.09.19 19:05

304 stainless steel is the most common form of stainless steel used in the world, largely due to its excellent corrosion resistance and 

value. It contains between 16 and 24 percent chromium and up to 35 percent nickel, as well as small amounts of coal and manganese.


The most common form of 304 stainless steel is 18-8 or 18/8 stainless steel, which contains 18 percent chromium and 8 percent nickel.

304 can resist corrosion of the most oxidizing acids. That durability makes 304 easy to disinfect and therefore ideal for kitchen and food 

applications. It is also common in buildings, decorations and furnishing sites.


304 stainless steel has a weakness: it is susceptible to corrosion by chloride solutions, or by saline environments such as the coast. Chloride 

ions can create localized areas of corrosion, called “pitting,” which can expand below chromium protective barriers to compromise internal 

structures. Solutions with as little as 25 ppm of sodium chloride can begin to have a corrosive effect.
