Type 304 generally refers to "18-8" (18% chromium, 8% nickel), most of the basic stainless steel alloy, very suitable for stainless steel mesh cloth. It can be exposed outdoors and will not rust or be oxidized when the external temperature rises to 1400 degrees fahrenheit.
Type 304L is very similar to T-304. The difference is that it reduces carbon content and is more conducive to weaving and re welding.
Type 316 can be stabilized by adding 2% molybdenum, and T-316 is a "18-8" alloy. It is more difficult to corrode in brine, sulfur water, or in brine than other chromium nickel stainless steels. Chloride, for example, is an obvious example. The most valuable feature of T-316 is that it has a stronger creep resistance at rising temperatures. Other mechanical and structural features are the same as those of T-304.
Type 316L is very similar to T-316. The difference is that it reduces carbon content and is more conducive to weaving and re welding.
The stainless steel mesh in acid and alkali conditions sieving and filtering, the mud for the oil industry, chemical fiber industry as the sieve net, as pickling electroplating industry, gas, liquid filtration and separation with other media, is widely used in environmental protection, mining, aviation, papermaking industry, electronics, metallurgy, electroplating industry, etc.. Therefore, in the high temperature and corrosion resistant industries, the selection of stainless steel profiles is particularly important.
