Stainless steels are highly alloy steels containing chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), titanium (Ti), tungsten (W), etc. Two of the main types of stainless steels are austenitic and ferrite stainless steels.
AUSTENITE STAINLESS STEEL
Austenitic or 300 series stainless steel has a carbon content (C) of 0.15%, at least 16% of chromium (Cr) and nickel (Ni) of 7%. It is the most used type of stainless steel due to its high corrosion resistance, good plastic properties, it cannot be magnetized and has good welding properties.
Available in rolls and sheets as steel grades TST 301,301L 304,304L, 304J1, 316, 316L, 316 Ti, 321, etc. Also as type 2B (with matt surface) and BA (glossy surface). Most used steels of these kind are 304 or 316.
Austenitic stainless steels are used for facilities in the mining industry, chemical, food, pharmaceutical, also for industrial, commercial and household vessels and parts, as well as for various architectural and transport applications.
FERRITE STAINLESS STEEL
Ferrite steel has better mechanical properties, but is less resistant to corrosion due to the reduced content of chromium (Cr) and nickel (Ni).
Most alloys include molybdenum (Mo), aluminium (Al), titanium (Ti) or the like. Usually ferrite steel contains chromium (Cr) between (12% - 17%).
They are available in rolls and sheets, as steel grades TST430, 430J1L, 430Ti, 409L, 436L, 439, 441 and more. The most commonly used type of ferrite steel is 430.
Ferrite stainless steels are used in household appliances, washing machines, dishwashers, exhaust systems, water heaters, connections and exhaust systems to home appliances and more.
