304 Stainless Steel Pipe

304 Stainless Steel Pipe


304 / 304L stainless steel pipe is a strong, tough metal with high corrosion protection, high temperature resistance and the ability to be sterlized. It has high workability and can be manufactured to tight tolerances and welded.  These alloys are the most commonly used of the stainless steel alloys and are a cost-effective choice for most applications.

These grades of austenitic stainless steels are the most versatile and widely used stainless steels. They exhibit excellent corrosion resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments. Type 304 and 304L grades of stainless steel pipe exhibit good machinability and have excellent weld-ability characteristics with or without the addition of filler metals.

304 Stainless Steel Pipe is ideal for all structural applications where greater strength and superior corrosion resistance is required. Having a durable mill finish and an interior welded seam, Stainless Pipe is widely used for all types of fabrication projects that are exposed to the elements - chemical, acidic, fresh water, and salt water environments.
