    What is the difference between 201 ss and 304 ss?

    In the metal industry, stainless steel is a common and widely used material. However, you may be confused between 201 stainless steel and 304 stainless steel. This article will explain in detail the differences between these two types of stainless steel.
    First, let’s take a look at 201 stainless steel. This is an iron alloy containing nickel and chromium, which has good hardness and strength, as well as good corrosion resistance. However, its corrosion resistance is slightly worse than 304 stainless steel. Because 201 stainless steel contains less nickel and chromium, its corrosion resistance is correspondingly lower. For indoor use or when there is not much contact with corrosive environments, 201 stainless steel is a cost-effective choice.
    Next, let’s take a look at 304 stainless steel. This is a material widely used in kitchenware, medical equipment and other industries. It contains higher levels of nickel and chromium, which makes it better resistant to corrosion and high temperatures. Even in corrosive environments, such as oceans, factories, etc., 304 stainless steel can maintain good stability. In addition, 304 stainless steel has high strength and hardness and can meet the needs of various complex processes.
    To summarize, the main difference between 201 stainless steel and 304 stainless steel is their corrosion resistance and strength. 201 stainless steel is cost-effective and suitable for indoor use and some mildly corrosive environments. 304 stainless steel, on the other hand, has greater corrosion resistance and high temperature performance, making it suitable for a wider range of industrial and commercial applications.
