Is 304 stainless steel and low carbon steel the same concept?
Is 304 stainless steel and low carbon steel the same concept?
The carbon content of 304 stainless steel is very low, so it is often regarded as low carbon steel. In fact, 304 stainless steel pipe is only low carbon stainless steel pipe, and low carbon steel is two concepts. Today we will take a look at why the two are not the same concept. Categorical.
1. Classification difference.
In the classification, 304 stainless steel is only a kind of austenitic stainless steel, while low carbon steel is a kind of carbon steel with very low carbon content, also known as mild steel. The two types of steel do not belong to the same classification category.
2. The content of carbon.
The carbon content in 304 stainless steel is about 0.07%. The carbon content of low carbon steel is between 0.10 and 0.25%, which is the reason why we often misunderstand. In terms of carbon content, 304 stainless steel is only one of the low carbon content of stainless steel.
3. Different characteristics.
304 stainless steel is just a common type of stainless steel among many stainless steels. It has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, stamping and bending performance and high toughness. Low carbon steel has low strength, low hardness, plasticity, toughness and weldability are better.
