Standard Specification for Chromium-Nickel stainless steel such as Stainless Steel 304 Sheet and Plate produced under ASTM A 204 envelopes components like plates, sheets, SS 304 Coil and SS 304 Strips, apropos for Pressure Vessels and for General Applications as well. Not limited to the high corrosion resistance properties, there are many advantages to using the Stainless Steel 304 Sheet. For instance, the alloy exhibits resistance at temperatures ranging between cryogenic to high heat settings. Furthermore, the ASME SA 240 Grade 304 has a smooth surface finish, which means that these sheets, coils and plates can be easily cleaned and sterilized, characteristics well suited to applications requiring sanitary equipment. Finishes used on the Stainless Steel 316 Sheet include No.1, 8K Mirror, 2B, BA, No.4, HL, Hairline, Satin, Brush, Matt, Embossed, PVC film as well as Laser film.
Stainless Steel 304 Sheet and Plate
SS 304 Strips
Usually, these sheets, plates and strips are produced with a thickness ranging between 0.4mm to 6mm. Due to their good workability and formability properties, applications of grade 304 Stainless Steel include stamped and machined products which could range from being used in the production of fasteners and fittings to sinks and drains or even tanks, pressure vessels and other equipment. Moreover, the combination of properties like high toughness with high tensile strength and impact resistance is why the Stainless Steel 304 Plate, ASTM A240 Type 304 stainless steel coils and plates are seen applied across industries, dealing with environments which have conditions that are corrosive and are involved in high temperatures. In fact, such conditions are observed in industries like the petrochemical, chemical, food processing, fresh and marine in addition to engines and motors.
