Which type of stainless steel is best

316 stainless steel added with Mo has excellent corrosion resistance, atmospheric corrosion resistance and high temperature strength, and can be used under harsh conditions; Excellent work hardening (non-magnetic); Excellent high temperature strength; No magnetism in solid solution state; Cold rolled products have good gloss and beautiful appearance; Compared with 304 stainless steel, the price is higher.

304 stainless steel is a common material in stainless steel, with a density of 7.93 g / cm. It is also called 18 / 8 stainless steel in the industry. High temperature resistance of 800 ℃, with the characteristics of good processing performance and high toughness, it is widely used in industry, furniture decoration industry and food and medical industry.
These two different grades of stainless steel, in fact, 304 stainless steel is enough to meet life, 316 stainless steel has better performance, but the price is more expensive, which is used in daily life.

304 stainless steel can be selected for daily use:
For food steel, 304 antibacterial stainless steel is enough, and there are almost no defects; In this regard, the use of 316 antibacterial stainless steel is purely overqualified. The aspect that 316 antibacterial stainless steel is stronger than 304 antibacterial stainless steel is not reflected at all. Therefore, when choosing products, consumers can make a comprehensive judgment according to their needs and cost performance, and choose appropriate products.

316 stainless steel is generally used in medical treatment, video, machinery and other aspects. 316 stainless steel only adds more chemical elements such as Mo than 304 stainless steel, that is, it has better hardness and oxidation resistance. Therefore, when we buy some tableware, we don’t need to spend much money to choose 316 stainless steel, just recognize 304 stainless steel.
