SS 304 Electrodes are renowned for their strength and malleability, making them an ideal material for various uses. At the core of these electrodes is a chemical composition of Iron (Fe) as the primary component, along with lesser amounts of Carbon (C), Trace Elements such as Silicon (Si), Manganese (Mn), Nickel (Ni), Sulfur (S) and Phosphorus (P). While independently, these elements may have properties that make them unsuitable for a wide range of uses, and they are incredibly hardy and long-lasting in tough conditions when combined in stainless steel.
Stainless Steel 304 Electrodes are a very valuable and versatile material used for welding purposes in many industries, ideal for high-temperature jobs like pressure vessels and autoclaves. These electrodes have outstanding corrosion resistance properties due to their unique alloy combination: 18-20% chromium and 8-10.5% nickel. Additionally, the low carbon content of 304 Stainless Steel Electrodes makes them suitable for welding and machining processes such as cutting, grinding or stamping. They are ideal for welding ferritic stainless steel and some austenitic steel grades. With excellent tensile strength, they provide high-quality welds with low heating temperatures that minimize the dilution of the surrounding materials, making them desirable in many production applications.
The alloy has a tensile strength of around 700MPa while the yield strength is around 210MPa. It has a high elongation capacity of 45% in 50mm. The density of the material is 8g/cm3.
