904L stainless steel is a low-carbon alloy austenitic grade of SS. It is used extensively for its superior corrosion resistant properties.
Conventional chrome stainless steels are comprised of nickel. However, 904L stainless steel is unique in its addition of copper. This is what gives this non-magnetic grade excellent toughness, formability and weldability. This non-stabilized high alloy is also resistant to corrosion cracking and crevice corrosion.
Common Applications of 904L Stainless Steel
- Seawater Cooling Equipment
