Everyone knows about stainless steel. Its 304 stainless steel or A2 stainless steel or 18/10 or 18/8 stainless steel is the most commonly used steel grade. The numbers 18/10 and 18/8 represent the chromium and nickel content of the steel. Its chemical composition contains 18% chromium, 8% nickel and 0.08% carbon. 304 is austenitic steel. It has excellent toughness, softness, ductility, spinning, formability and stretchability. It has excellent corrosion resistance and heat resistance. It is non-magnetic in the annealed state but becomes magnetic during cold working. In its annealed state, it has a minimum tensile strength of 75,000 PSI, a yield strength of 30,000 PSI, and an elongation of 40% and 2 inches.
Depending on the type of product, 304 stainless steel is divided into several categories, namely 304, 304L and 304H. 304L contains less than 304 carbon. It has higher solderability and is therefore best suited for large format components. 304H contains more than 304 carbon. It can be used at higher temperatures. 304 stainless steel is used in all types of home and industrial applications. It is used in the production of food processing equipment. It is also suitable for dairy equipment such as milking machines, containers and sterilizers. It is used in a variety of household equipment such as refrigerators, cookware, sinks, steam tables, and the like. It is also used in aerospace structures, pressure applications, building structures, sanitary or cryogenic applications, and chemical industry processing equipment.
Geographically, the global 304 stainless steel market is divided into North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, India, Africa and Latin America. Due to advances in technology, North America and Europe will become the main markets for 304 stainless steel in the next few years. During the forecast period, the rapid urbanization process in developing countries such as India and China is expected to increase significantly in the 304 stainless steel market in developing regions. This also shows that the demand for China Stainless Steel Sink is also gradually moving up.
