304L Stainless Steel Plate contains much less carbon than 304. The 304L is superior to the 304 in resisting pitting at the weld or in other places.
304L Stainless steel is a versatile stainless steel material.
304L stainless steel corrosion resistance, appearance, processability, strength and other characteristics far more than other materials.
Widely used in household products (1, 2 types of tableware), cabinets, indoor pipes, water heaters, boilers, bathtubs, auto parts, medical equipment, building materials, chemicals, food industry, agriculture, marine components.
【Advantages and Disadvantages】
The lower carbon content minimizes the amount of carbide precipitated in the thermal impact zone close to the weld, while the precipitation of carbides may result in intergranular corrosion (weld erosion) of stainless steel in some environments.
