304 is low carbon 18-8 chromium-nickel stainless tubing. It combines excellent physical properties with remarkable resistance to many corrosive agents encountered in domestic and industrial use. The low carbon content provides good corrosion resistance in welded construction where subsequent solution heat treatment is not practical. It has good heat resistance and maintains its strength elevated temperatures to 800 F. It is a non-magnetic in the annealed condition and not hardenable by heat treatment. Both hardness and tensile strength can be increased by cold working. Because of its lack of magnetism it is highly desirable for instruments. Intended for use in high pressure hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Tensile strength 85,000 psi Yield 35,000 psi.
