       Dear friends, stainless steel is suitable for all kinds of wire mesh, such as expanded metal, safety grating, perforated metal, laser cut panel and so on. When you want stainless steel wire mesh, whether you're not clear which type should you choose ? I explain the differences of 201 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel. Please check the following.

      201, 304 and 316 are all code names for stainless steel. In essence, they are both stainless steel, but they belong to different types when subdivided. The quality of 316 stainless steel is greater than that of 304 and the quality of 304 stainless steel is greater than that of 201.

      The corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance of 201 stainless steel are not as good as 304 stainless steel. Since 201 stainless steel has a higher carbon content than 304 stainless steel, 201 stainless steel is more brittle than 304 stainless steel.

      For 304 stainless steel, the Ni element in its composition is very important, which directly determines the corrosion resistance and value of 304 stainless steel. The manganese content in stainless steel 201 is relatively high. When it comes into contact with acidic substances, the manganese in it is easily precipitated.

     201 stainless steel mainly covers construction, industrial fields and other scenes, while 304 stainless steel has absolute advantages in performance, so the coverage is wider and more comprehensive than 201 stainless steel.

      In addition, when you choose stainless steel material, the price is also one of the factors that need to be considered.304 stainless steel because of its performance is better than 201 stainless steel, so 304 stainless steel price is more expensive than 201 stainless steel.

     stainless steel 316 stainless steel incorporates metal molybdenum on the basis of 304. This element can further consolidate the molecular structure of stainless steel, making it more wear-resistant and oxidation-resistant, and at the same time its corrosion resistance is also greatly increase.

    The biggest difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel is the market application. 304 stainless steel is usually used in daily life, kettles, chopsticks and so on. Although 316 stainless steel will be partly used in daily life, most of it is still used in medical or heavy industry equipment. 

     Do you know which type to choose ? I attached some photos of stainless steel 304 expanded metal.
