STAINLESS COIL & SHEET DESIGN GUIDE
T201 – This alloy is a chromium-nickel-manganese stainless, originally developed to conserve nickel. Its properties are similar to T-301 and exhibits excellent toughness at low temperatures. Typical applications include food service, kitchen equipment, appliances, automotive trim, and architectural applications.
T301 – This alloy is lower in chromium and nickel, for greater work hardening. Typical applications include food service, kitchen equipment, and conveyors and belts.
T304 / T304L – This alloy exhibits an excellent resistance to a wide range of atmospheric and corrosive conditions. Typical applications include kitchen utensils, appliances, automotive and chemical facilities, building materials, and transportation. The “L” version denotes a lower carbon level to avoid carbide precipitation that can occur during welding.
T316 / T316L – This alloy includes molybdenum for improved corrosion and pitting resistance. Typical applications include the chemical and paper industry, pharmaceutical processing equipment and environmental scrubbers. The “L” version denotes a lower carbon level to avoid carbide precipitation that can occur during welding.
T409 – This alloy is stabilized with titanium and exhibits excellent corrosion resistance along with good formability. A typical application is automotive exhausts.
T430 – This alloy exhibits good mechanical properties along with heat resistance. Typical applications include food service, kitchen equipment, automotive trim, and architectural tubing.
T439 – This alloy is titanium stabilized with a high chromium content, providing high corrosion resistance in oxidizing environments. A typical application is automotive exhausts.
T441 – This alloy is a chromium and columbium bearing stainless providing good high-temperature strength along with good corrosion resistance. Typical applications include those not requiring the high temperature of an 18 Chromium-Columbium stainless, yet those that require temperature improvements over those of a T409 and T439 stainless.
