Popular Types of Stainless Steel:

  1. Austenitic Stainless Steel: Identified by 200 and 300 series numbers, with an austenite microstructure.

    • Common Types: 1Cr18Ni9Ti(321)、0Cr18Ni9(302)、00Cr17Ni14M02(316L)
    • Advantages: Excellent weldability, good plasticity, deformation resistance, stability, and easy passivation.
    • Disadvantages: Sensitive to chloride-containing solutions, prone to stress corrosion.
  2. Ferritic Stainless Steel: Identified by 400 series numbers, featuring a ferrite microstructure and chromium mass fraction between 11.5% and 32.0%.

    • Common Types: 00Cr12、1Cr17(430)、00Cr17Mo、00Cr30Mo2、Crl7、Cr17Mo2Ti、Cr25,Cr25Mo3Ti、Cr28
    • Advantages: High chromium content, excellent thermal conductivity, and better stability.
    • Disadvantages: Inferior mechanical properties and process performance.
  3. Martensitic Stainless Steel: Also marked by 400 series numbers, characterized by a martensite microstructure and chromium mass fraction of 11.5% to 18.0%.

    • Common Types: 1Cr13(410)、2 Cr13(420)、3 Cr13、1 Cr17Ni2
    • Advantages: High carbon content resulting in high hardness.
    • Disadvantages: Limited plasticity and weldability.

Applications of Stainless Steel: Custom stainless steel parts find extensive use in containers, handles, marine parts, engine components, cooking utensils, medical devices, hospital instruments, lab equipment, pressure tanks, fasteners, automotive parts, and architectural components.
