Sheets and Plates

SS 904L Sheet and SS 904L Plate 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 super austenitic stainless steel that is designed for moderate to high corrosion resistance in a wide range of process environments.
