Why Choose 316 Stainless Steel Coil?
316 stainless steel coil is a commonly used stainless steel material with many excellent properties, making it a leader in stainless steel coil products and widely used in many fields. The specific reasons for choosing it are as follows:
Good Corrosion Resistance
The chemical composition of 316 stainless steel coil contains about 2-3% molybdenum, which has stronger corrosion resistance. It is resistant to the corrosion of chemical substances such as sulfuric acid, acetic acid, and alkaline chloride, and is suitable for corrosive environments such as marine environments and chlorine-containing media.
It has a high high-temperature resistance performance, can still maintain structural stability and strength in high-temperature environments, and is not easy to oxidize or thermal expand. It is suitable for high-temperature equipment and heating elements.
Excellent Mechanical Properties
Good strength and plasticity make it easy to process and shape during the manufacturing process, with high tensile strength, yield strength, and impact resistance and can withstand large forces and pressures.
Excellent Welding Performance
316 stainless steel coil has excellent welding performance, and can be connected and assembled by various common welding methods. The welded joint has good strength and corrosion resistance, which can meet complex manufacturing needs.
316 stainless steel coil is a non-toxic, odorless, non-toxic material that does not release harmful substances. It has good hygienic performance and is widely used in food processing, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment, and meets hygienic standards and regulations.
Long Life And Low Maintenance Cost
316 stainless steel coil has a long life and low maintenance cost, due to its excellent corrosion resistance and mechanical properties, it reduces the frequency of parts replacement and maintenance and reduces the overall cost of use.
What Is the Difference between SUS304 and SUS316?
SUS304 and SUS316 are two common stainless steel materials, they are both 300-series stainless steel coils, but in some respects, they are slightly different:
In terms of chemical composition, SUS304 is an 18-8 type of stainless steel containing about 18% chromium and 8% nickel and also contains about 0.08% carbon and a small amount of silicon, manganese, and other elements. And SUS316 is a type 18-10-2 stainless steel that contains about 2% molybdenum in addition to about 18% chromium and 10% nickel. The addition of molybdenum improves the corrosion resistance of SUS316 in acidic and chloride environments.
In terms of corrosion resistance, SUS316 has better corrosion resistance and is more resistant to corrosion by various chemical media than SUS304, including acids, alkalis, and salts. Therefore, SUS316 is often used in occasions requiring high corrosion resistance such as marine environment, chemical industry, and food processing.
In the applicable temperature range, both SUS304 and SUS316 have good high-temperature performance, but the high-temperature resistance of SUS316 is slightly better than that of SUS304. SUS316 can maintain structural stability and strength at higher temperatures, so it is more common in high-temperature environments.
In daily life, if you observe, you will find that 316 stainless steel exists widely in life. The cost of 316 stainless steel is higher than that of 304 stainless steel. It is the material with the highest safety index in the food range, and its comprehensive performance is also better than that of 304 stainless steel.
