304 Stainless Steel Tubing

This grade of stainless steel is one of the widely used stainless steel supplies in Melbourne. They display great corrosion resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments. These tubes have excellent characteristics without even the use of filler metals. Jignesh Steels is known as the manufacturer and supplier for 304 stainless sheets of steel available in a variety of grades and finishes. This manufacturer carries a variety of 304 stainless sheets of steel from carbon steel and Nickel Alloy. This type of stainless steel contains about 18% to 20% of chromium and 8% to 10% of nickel. It has excellent forming as well. This kind of steel is also used in some appliances and Architectural panelling, chemical containers and for transport as well.

Stainless steel is used in aircraft cables and these cables are used for far more than aircraft industries. It is a thin wire flexible strand used in a variety of applications. The advantage to aircraft cable is that despite its flexibility and thin diameter its multi-strand configuration makes aircraft cable remarkably strong.

Carbon steel:

It is the go metal for landing gears because of its ability to withstand high pressure without becoming deformed. It has also been used as the skin of some high-speed aeroplanes. Because of its resistance to heat supersonic jets use this kind of steel.

Plane carbon steel has a maximum amount of 1.5% carbon with small percentages of silica and sulphur etc.

Low carbon steel mostly contains 0.25%.

Medium carbon steels have carbon concentrations between 0.25% to 0.60 %. These steels may be heat-treated by quenching.  Medium carbon provides a tremendous load-carrying ability

High carbon steel contains 0.60% to 2% of carbon. They are the strongest of the plain carbon steels but least ductile. The alloying elements such as chromium and vanadium can be added in these steels to form hard resistance carbide compounds.

There are commonly four impurities in plain carbon steels. I.e. Silicon (0.05% to 0.30%), Manganese (0.3% to 1%, Sulphur(exceeds0.5%), Phosphorus(does not exceeds 0.4%). The limit of plain carbon steel is that it cannot increase more than 700 MPa without substantial loss in ductility and impact strength. Properties do not remain uniform for the larger thickness of plain carbon steels. They have really poor corrosion and oxidation resistance.
