904L Super Austenitic Stainless Steel

904L super austenitic stainless steel (00cr20ni25mo4.5cu; UNS: N08904; en: 1.4539) is a kind of high alloy austenitic stainless steel with low carbon content. It has good corrosion resistance in dilute sulfuric acid and is specially designed for the environment with harsh corrosion conditions.
 
904L super austenitic stainless steel contains 14.0-18.0% chromium, 24.0-26.0% nickel and 4.5% molybdenum. 904L super austenitic stainless steel is a kind of low carbon, high nickel, molybdenum austenitic stainless and acid resistant steel. It is the proprietary material of H.S company of France. It has good activation passivation transformation ability, excellent corrosion resistance, good corrosion resistance in non oxidizing acids such as sulfuric acid, acetic acid, formic acid and phosphoric acid, good pitting corrosion resistance in neutral chloride medium, good crevice corrosion resistance and stress corrosion resistance. It is suitable for all kinds of sulfuric acid concentration below 70 ℃. It is resistant to acetic acid of any concentration and temperature under normal pressure, and has good corrosion resistance in the mixed acid of formic acid and acetic acid.

Genenal Introduction
904L is a low carbon high alloy austenitic stainless steel which is widely used in applications where the corrosion properties of AISI 316L and AISI 317L are not adequate.
The addition of copper to this grade gives it corrosion resistant properties superior to the conventional chrome nickel stainless steels, in particular to sulphuric, phosphoric and acetic acids. However, there is limited use with hydrochloric acids. It also has a high resistance to pitting in chloride solutions, a high resistance to both crevice and stress corrosion cracking. Alloy 904L performs better than other austenitic stainless steels due to the higher alloying of nickel and molybdenum.

The grade is non-magnetic in all conditions and has excellent formability and weldability. The austenitic structure also gives this grade excellent toughness, even down to cryogenic temperatures.

The high chromium content promotes and maintains a passive film which protects the material in many corrosive environments.904L has a greater resistance to precipitation of ferrite and sigma phases on cooling and welding than other stainless steels containing molybdenum such as 316L and 317L. There is no risk of intercrystalline corrosion on cooling or welding due to the low carbon content. Its maximum service temperature is at 450°C.
