What is the difference between 304 and 316 steel?


1. What is the difference between 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel
1. The chemical composition is different: 304 has no molybdenum element, while 316 has molybdenum element.
2. Different corrosion resistance: 304 contains only 9% nickel elements, while 316 contains 12% nickel elements, so the corrosion resistance of 304 is worse.
3. Different performance: 304 has better corrosion resistance, acid resistance, and alkali resistance, while 316 has better chloride corrosion resistance and heat resistance due to the addition of molybdenum.
4. The scope of application is different: 304 is widely used to make pots and pans, etc., while 316 is widely used in the food industry, medical industry, watch industry, etc.
5. Different prices: Since 316 is food grade and has better corrosion resistance, the price of 316 will be more expensive than 304.
