The most common grades of sheet stainless steel include:
304 stainless steel sheet is a type of sheet metal made from an alloy of iron, carbon, and at least 10.5% chromium. It is commonly referred to as “18-8” stainless steel because it contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel.
304 stainless steel sheet is highly corrosion-resistant and has excellent strength and durability. It is non-magnetic, which makes it ideal for use in applications where magnetism could be a problem. The high chromium content in 304 stainless steel sheet also gives it good resistance to oxidation and corrosion, even in harsh environments.
304 stainless steel sheet is used in a wide range of applications, including food processing equipment, chemical processing equipment, automotive parts, medical instruments, and architectural trim. It is also commonly used for kitchen appliances, sinks, and countertops due to its attractive appearance and resistance to corrosion and staining.
304 stainless steel sheet is not magnetic. This is due to its specific structure and composition. The 304 grade of stainless steel is an austenitic type, primarily composed of nickel and chromium. The combination of these elements and its crystalline structure makes it non-magnetic. Since it is non-magnetic, it is particularly useful in applications where magnetism might interfere, such as electronic devices and some medical equipment.
Yes, stainless sheet metal can be welded. For stainless steel joints to be strong and corrosion-resistant, specific welding techniques and considerations must be taken into account. The key to welding stainless sheet metal effectively is to select the correct welding method and filler material for the specific type or grade of stainless steel. Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) and Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding are common methods for welding stainless steel. To prevent any compromise in corrosion resistance of the welded joint, the welding environment must be free of contaminants. In some cases, post-weld heat treatment may be necessary to restore corrosion resistance and mechanical properties of the welded area.
