1) Type 304:Often referred to as '18-8' (18% chromium, 8% nickel) T-304 is the basic stainless alloy mostly commonly utilized for wire cloth weaving. It withstands outdoor exposure without rusting, and resists oxidation at elevated temperatures up to 1400oF. Typical applications for this wire cloth include use with chemicals, food products, pharmaceuticals and conditions with exposure to moisture.
2) Type 304 L:
Type 304 L is very similar to T-304, with the difference being reduced carbon content; which ensures better weaving and secondary welding characteristics.
3) Type 316:
Stabilized by the addition of 2% molybdenum, T-316 is an '18-8' alloy.
Type 316 has better resistance to corrosion than other chromium-nickel stainless steels where brine, sulfur-bearing water or halogen salts (such as chlorides) are present.
A valuable property of T-316 is its high creep strength at elevated temperatures.
Other mechanical properties and fabricating characteristics are similar to T-304.
Wire cloth woven from T-316 has extensive use in chemical processing, especially when better corrosion resistance is required than for regular chromium-nickel types.
4) Type 316 L:
Type 316 L is very similar to T-316, with the difference being reduced carbon content; which ensures better weaving and secondary welding characteristics.
