Stainless Steel Flex Socket Wrench SS Flex Socket Wrench Make : Sparkless Stainless Steel Flexible Socket Wrench We at Sparkless Mainly have two ranges of Stainless Steel Strile hand tools SS 304 & SS316
Type 304 is an austenitic steel with a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel, combined with a maximum of .08% carbon. It is non-magnetic and cannot be hardened by heat treatment, and must be cold-worked to obtain higher tensile strengths. Corrosion and oxidation resistance is provided by the minimum 18% chromium content.
The alloy's metallurgical characteristics are established primarily by the nickel content which also extends resistance to corrosion caused by chemicals.
This stainless alloy resists most oxidizing acids and can withstand ordinary rusting. It is immune to most organic chemicals, dyes, foodstuffs, and a wide variety of inorganic chemicals. Because of its ability to withstand the corrosive action of various acids found in fruits, meats, and vegetables, 304 is widely used for sinks, tabletops, refrigerators, cooking appliances, pots, pans, and flatware.
Similar to 304, 316 is an austenitic, non-magnetic, and thermally non-hardenable steel alloy. Carbon is held at .08% maximum, while the nickel content is increased slightly. What distinguishes 316 from 304 is the addition of molybdenum up to a maximum of 3%. Molybdenum is one of the most useful additives in the fight against corrosion.
It increases the resistance of the alloy against many industrial chemicals and solvents and inhibits pitting caused by chlorides. SS 316 can withstand corrosive attack by sodium and calcium brines, hypochlorite solutions and phosphoric acid. This alloy is used for industrial equipment that handles the corrosive process chemicals used to produce inks, rayons, photographic chemicals, paper, textile, bleaches, and rubber.
