Grade 316 Stainless Steel

Grade 316 is the 2nd most popular austenitic stainless steel, offering similar mechanical properties to grade 304, with greater corrosion resistance. With its improved resistance to pitting from chlorides, it is often used in marine environments and industrial applications where greater protection against corrosion is required. Available as 316, 316H, as well as 316L, our material conforms to ASTM A 240 and is processed in accordance with ASTM A 480. Additional info on our grade 316 sheet and plate is available in our Stainless Steel Technical Information section.

Grade 304 Stainless Steel

Grade 304 is one of the more popular grades of austenitic stainless steel. It has good formability, weld-ability and corrosion resistance. This material is predominantly found in the food and beverage industry, often used for storage and processing tanks, as well as pipes & tube to convey liquids throughout the production process. Grade 304 is also popular in the catering, architectural and mining sectors. Available as 304L, 304 H, to meet stringent requirements. Additional information is available in our Stainless Steel Technical Information section. Columbus offer grade 304 flat products in sheet, coil, strip and plate format.

Grade 430 Stainless Steel

Grade 430 is the more popular type available in the ferritic stainless steel group of products. Characterised by being magnetic, this material material is typically used in less demanding environments. Often used in the catering sector, grade 430 is available in a BA finish, 2B, as well as polished. Grade 430 is one of a range of ferritic grades that we offer, which includes grade 441 and 444. More information on these products is available in our Stainless Steel Technical Information section.

Utility ferritics - e.g. 3CR12, S41003/1.4003, 410S Stainless Steel

3CR12 is recognised as the original and now the world’s most specified 12% chromium utility ferritic stainless steel. The main advantage of these utility ferritics over other ferritic stainless steels is that they are tough, even when welded, in thicknesses of up to 30mm and retain their toughness at temperatures below freezing point. The corrosion resistance of the utility ferritics is largely determined by their chromium content and is thus similar to other 12% chromium ferritic stainless steels.

Standard ferritics - e.g. 409/1.4512, 430/1.4016, 439/1.4510 Stainless Steel.

Standard ferritic stainless steels are plain chromium stainless steels, and can be stabilised with niobium and/or titanium. Annealed standard ferritics are ductile and can be formed using a wide variety of roll forming or mild stretch bending operations as well as the more common drawing and bending operations. They do not harden excessively during cold working.

Being ferritic, they are not susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. The steels have limited weldability and should not be used in the as-welded condition for dynamic or impact loaded structures.

Moly ferritics - 434/1.4113, 436/1.4526, 444/1.4521 Stainless Steel

Moly ferritic stainless steels are chromium stainless steels alloyed with Molybdenum, and can be stabilised with niobium and/or titanium. Annealed moly ferritics are ductile and can be formed using a large variety of roll forming or mild stretch bending operations as well as the more common drawing and bending operations. They do not harden excessively during cold working.

Lean duplex - e.g. 2001/1.4482, 2304/1.4362 Duplex Steel

The duplex stainless steels have a microstructure, when heat treated properly, of nearly equal proportions of austenite and ferrite. This microstructure ensures that the duplexes are much more resistant to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) than austenitic stainless steels.

The specification 0.2% Proof Stress of the duplexes is more than double that of austenitic stainless steels such as the 304 types and 316L types. This often allows down gauging in the design, depending on Young’s Modulus and buckling limitations.

Standard duplex - e.g. 2205/1.4462 Duplex Steel

The duplex stainless steels have a microstructure, when heat treated properly, of nearly equal proportions of austenite and ferrite. This microstructure ensures that the duplexes are much more resistant to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) than austenitic stainless steels.

The specification 0.2% Proof Stress of the duplexes is more than double that of austenitic stainless steels such as the 304 types and 316L types. This often allows down gauging in the design, depending on Young’s Modulus and buckling limitations.
