Round Bar

Round Bar

Stainless Steel 904L Round Bar are high purity steels with low sulphur content and also non-stabilized austenitic stainless steel with low carbon content. Alloy 904L (UNS N08904) is a superaustenitic stainless steel that is designed for moderate to high corrosion resistance in a wide range of process environments.

904L Bar can be easily welded and processed by standard fabrication process. 904L is quite ductile and forms easily. The addition of molybdenum and nitrogen implies more powerful processing equipment may be necessary when compared with the standard 304/304L grades.

SS 904L Round Bar has proven to be a good alternative to most conventional stainless steels. Conventional stainless steels such as 304L and 316L are susceptible to chloride stress corrosion cracking (SSC) under certain conditions.

Specification
