The pots and pans in life are one of the most common materials for home kitchen appliances, stainless steel home kitchen tools
Nowadays, the stainless steel pots on the market can be divided into various styles such as 304 and 316. It may be very confusing as a layman.
In the so-called stainless steel, steel is added with elements such as chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), manganese (Mn), silicon (Si), titanium (Ti),
molybdenum (Mo) during the smelting process, and forms an alloy with iron to improve The performance of the steel makes the steel resistant
to corrosion (ie, no rust), which is what we often call stainless steel.
The 300 series stainless steel can be divided into 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 321, 309S, 310S, etc. The basis for the distinction is the content of various metal elements,
and the characteristics of stainless steel with different contents are different. The difference between 304 and 304L lies in The difference in carbon (C) content,
the band L means that the carbon content is low, also called low carbon, and the difference between 316 and 316L is also the same.
304 stainless steel , its composition is 0Cr18Ni9, has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties, so it is the most
widely used stainless steel variety.
316 stainless steel , on the basis of 304, added Mo element, and thus has better corrosion resistance, and is the second most widely used steel grade after 304,
mainly used in the food industry and surgical equipment.
