The Difference Between 304 and Ordinary Stainless Steel

We all know that 304 stainless steel material is better than ordinary stainless steel, but many people do not know the details. Today we will give you an analysis of this problem.    

Difference 1: High temperature resistance. Compared with ordinary stainless steel, 304 stainless steel has high temperature resistance properties, with a bearing temperature reaching 800℃, but ordinary stainless steel may damage at this temperature.    

Difference 2:  Anti-corrosion. 304 stainless steel is the most widely used chrome-nickel, so its chemical properties are relatively stable. In terms of corrosion resistance, 304 stainless steel has good anti-corrosion function.

Difference 3:  High toughness. 304 stainless steel features excellent processing performance and high toughness. In the production process, its excellent processing performance benefits to the quality of the products. 

Difference 4:  Lead content. The lead content of 304 stainless steel is less than the lead content of ordinary stainless steel, so 304 stainless steel is often called food grade stainless steel. Ordinary stainless steel contains more lead and is harmful to the body, so it can not be directly used for food appliances.                                                                                                                                                

304 stainless steel has many advantages and the metal content is more than ordinary stainless steel plate, so it has some more excellent properties. Many advantages determine the imperative role of 304 stainless steel in various fields, especially in a more demanding environment.
