The common stainless steel wire is 304 stainless steel wire, and the 304 is 1Cr18Ni9. (percentage)
The type of stainless steel, generally 201202304316, these 202 and 304 use more
316 and 317 stainless steel (see below the performance of 317 stainless steel) is a stainless steel containing molybdenum. The molybdenum content in 317 stainless steel with 316 stainless steel. Due to a little of molybdenum in steel, the steel overall performance is better than 310 and 304 stainless steel, high temperature, when the concentration of sulfuric acid is less than 15% and more than 85%, 316 stainless steel has been widely used. 316 stainless steel also has good chloride corrosion resistance, so it is usually used in marine environment.
The maximum carbon content of 316L stainless steel is 0.03, which can be used for the purpose of not annealing after welding and requiring maximum corrosion resistance
