What are the typical thermal conductivity and thermal expansion properties of 304 stainless steel sheets?
The typical thermal conductivity of 304 Stainless Steel sheets is approximately 16.2 W/m·K which is relatively high compared to other materials. This high thermal conductivity enables efficient heat transfer making 304 SS sheets suitable for applications that require effective thermal management such as heat exchangers & cooking utensils.

Can 304 stainless steel plate withstand exposure to various chemicals, such as acids, alkalis, or organic solvents, without significant corrosion?
Yes, 304 stainless steel plates exhibit remarkable resistance to a wide range of chemicals including acids, alkalis and organic solvents. The corrosion resistance of 304 SS is primarily attributed to the presence of chromium, which forms a passive oxide layer on the surface of the material. This oxide layer acts as a protective barrier, preventing the underlying metal from reacting with corrosive substances.

What are the considerations for surface treatment and passivation of SS 304 plates to enhance their corrosion resistance?
The surface treatment process involves thorough cleaning to remove any contaminants, followed by pickling using acid solutions to remove scale, oxide layers and impurities from the surface. Passivation, often performed using a nitric acid solution, promotes the formation of a protective oxide layer on the stainless steel surface, further enhancing its resistance to corrosion.
Can 304 stainless sheet exhibit sensitization and intergranular corrosion under certain conditions, and how can it be mitigated?
Sensitization and intergranular corrosion can occur in 304 stainless sheets under specific conditions. Mitigation involves reducing carbon content, using stabilized grades like 304L or 321 stainless steel, employing proper welding techniques, and applying heat treatments like annealing or solution treatment to dissolve carbides and restore corrosion resistance.
How does the heat treatment process, such as annealing or solution treatment, affect the microstructure and properties of 304 stainless steel strips?
Heat treatment processes like annealing and solution treatment significantly affect the microstructure and properties of 304 SS strips. Annealing relieves internal stresses, improves ductility, and refines the microstructure, while solution treatment dissolves precipitated phases and restores the austenitic structure.
