This is a high-performance alloy. It is a combination of 18 percent chromium and 8 percent nickel. This fusion gives it a high resistance to oxidation and corrosion. It has high tensile strength  too.

The 304 stainless steel bars 3 4 11 unc all thread rod has a stainless level ranging between 2,550 °F – 2,650 °F. However, as it reaches that level, the more it loses its tensile strength. 304/304L has a tensile strength of 621 MPa (90 ksi) and  870˚C as maximum operating temperature.

304 stainless steel rod resists rusting making it the most widely used austenitic stainless steel. It is also referred to as “18/8” due to its composition. Grade 304 stainless steel is ideal for welding due to its forming and corrosion resistance.

The 304 round bar has good drawability. This quality makes it easy to form into various shapes compared to 302 stainless. Additionally, a 304 stainless steel round bar can be used without annealing.

304L Stainless Steel Bars Verstality

Though grade 304L is an extra-low carbon version of the 304 alloys, it is still used widely as it is also versatile. The lower carbon in 304L stainless steel helps to minimize harmful carbide precipitation due to welding. The alloy helps improve weldability.
