304L Stainless Steel Pipes & Tube

304L Stainless Steel Pipes & Tube

The 304L is a grade of stainless steel, tube that can have a polished and brushed shiny finish.  Type 304L grades of stainless steel pipe have good  maintainability and also have outstanding weld-ability characteristics with or without the addition of filler metals.

The tube is polished with an abrasive belt to achieve the “scratched grain” finish. It is attractive aesthetically and corrosion resistant which makes it well suited for sanitary environments. The pipe is also easily maintained, thanks to the polished finish.

304L Stainless Steel Grade Pipe

Grade 316L is the low carbon grade version of 316, it is highly resistant to sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation) and so is widely used in heavy and high gauge welded components (about

5mm plus).
