Stainless steel 304 is an austenitic stainless steel alloy commonly used for various applications due to its good corrosion resistance and ease of fabrication. However, it is not the best choice for highly corrosive environments like saltwater. This is due to the fact that the presence of chlorides in the saltwater can lead to pitting and crevice corrosion in stainless steel 304 over time.
For marine or saltwater applications, a more corrosion-resistant stainless steel like 316 is often recommended. Stainless steel 316 contains molybdenum, which significantly improves its resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments.
If you use 304 stainless steel washers in a saltwater environment:
Stainless steel 304 does have a level of corrosion resistance due to its chromium content, which forms an oxide layer on the surface when exposed to air. This oxide layer helps to protect the underlying material from corrosion to some extent. However, “corrosion-resistant” does not mean “corrosion-proof.”
The extent to which 304 stainless steel is “corrosion-resistant” depends on the environment it is placed in. In many indoor or mild outdoor environments, stainless steel 304 performs well without significant corrosion.
However, it is less resistant to corrosion in environments that are:
In such conditions, the protective oxide layer may break down, allowing for corrosion mechanisms like pitting, crevice corrosion or general corrosion to occur.
The designations “Form A,” “Form B,” “Form C,” and “Form D” refer to different types of flat washers, each with specific dimensions and intended applications. These forms are standardised dimensions that dictate factors such as the washer’s internal and external diameters, as well as its thickness.
