How much more expensive 904l stainless steel is than 304?

How much more expensive 904l stainless steel is than 304?

Posted:2021-07-19 11:13:55
Both 904l stainless steel and 304 stainless steel have good corrosion resistance characteristics, but the nickel content of 904l stainless steel is much higher than that of 304 stainless steel, so 904l stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion than 304 stainless steel. When we sell steel types, many customers often ask how much 904l stainless steel is more expensive than 304? Why is 904l stainless steel more expensive than 304 stainless steel?
 
The price of steel is inseparable from its material composition, and the main components that affect the cost of steel are nickel, chromium, and molybdenum. The nickel content of 304 stainless steel is 8.0%-11.0%, the chromium content is 18.0%-20.0%, and there is no molybdenum element, while the nickel content of 904l stainless steel is 23%-28%, the chromium content is 19%-23%, and the molybdenum content is 4%-5%. From this, we can see that the content of nickel, chromium and molybdenum in 904l stainless steel is much higher than that of 304, and 904l stainless steel also adds copper properties, so the cost of 904l stainless steel is more expensive.
 
The price of 904l stainless steel is about 50-90 yuan per kilogram, while the price of 304 stainless steel is about 40 yuan per kilogram. 904l stainless steel is tens of yuan more expensive than 304 per kilogram, but it is worth the money. Generally, 904l stainless steel is used in relatively high-end areas.
