316 and 304 stainless steel which is better

22 Sep,2023

304 stainless steel is a food grade stainless steel, more commonly used in the use of Gitong, 316 stainless steel also added some elements, corrosion resistance and acid resistance will be better, more widely used in medicine and industry, the price is more expensive, the general family use is not to use 316 stainless steel.

From the following three aspects of the two kinds of stainless steel

From the acid and alkali resistance ability, 316 stainless steel must be better than 304 stainless steel, the acid and alkali resistance between them is different, 316 acid and alkali resistance is greater than 314 stainless steel acid and alkali resistance, the reason they both content composition is different, because 316 element content is higher than 314 element content, So 316 stainless steel will be better than the ordinary stainless steel on the market.

In terms of price, the price of 304 is lower than the price of 316 stainless steel. 316 stainless steel because of its own composition content is different, so the price of 316 stainless steel has reached twice the price of 304 stainless steel. In daily life, the use of 304 stainless steel is more, but also because the price is lower

From the use of the environment, the above said 304 stainless steel is food grade stainless steel. In our daily life, it is often used to make chopsticks, kettles, bowls, spoons and so on. Because 316 stainless steel is resistant to corrosion, it is often used in the manufacture of medical equipment or industrial equipment.
