What is 201 stainless steel plate?

201 stainless steel plate is a kind of low nickel stainless steel plate. Moreover, it is a high strength hardened austenitic stainless steel. At the same time, its chromium content is 16%-18%, nickel content is 3.5%-5.5%. Because the price of nickel is relatively high, in order to save a nickel, people made 201 stainless steel plate. Therefore, it is characterized by a low nickel content. Moreover, it cannot be hardened by heat treatment. However, it can be cold processed into plates with high tensile strength. And, in some cases, it can replace other alloys with higher nickel content.

How is 201 stainless steel plate produced?

1. First, chromite can be extracted from underground mines. Chromite powder is then crushed to produce chromite concentrate. In addition, chromite concentrate can be smelted with iron ore, manganese, nickel and other raw materials. After melting, they are made into slabs. The slab is then put on the hot mill. At this point, the mill makes the stainless steel thin and cools it with water. Next, the slab is transferred to a cold mill. At this point, black scales cover it. Finally, the oxide skin is removed through a return and pickling process. In this way, stainless steel plates were made.

2. However, before delivery, people must check the quality and durability of the stainless steel plate and other parameters of the specifications. These include thermal stability, dimensional accuracy, durability, corrosion resistance, etc. 201 Stainless steel hot rolled plate strong enough. In addition, people can use different techniques to make the surface smooth and delicate. As for its thickness, 201 stainless steel plate has 0.5-4mm sheet. In addition, there is 4.5-5.5 mm thick sheet. In addition, people have different manufacturing processes for different uses of 201 stainless steel plate.

What are the characteristics of 201 stainless steel plate?

1. One can weld a 201 stainless steel plate to steel with 18% chromium and 8% nickel using all conventional methods. In addition, traditional chrome-nickel filler metal can be used. But the carbon content of 201 stainless steel plate cannot be controlled below 0.03%. Therefore, like other austenitic stainless steels, type 201 is prone to inter-granular corrosion in the heat affected zone of the weld.

2. Type 201 stainless steel is resistant to corrosion in mildly to moderately corrosive environments. Moreover, its corrosion resistance is close to that of type 301. And it successfully replaced the Type 304 in many mild environments.

3. Type 201 stainless steel is non-magnetic in the return state but will become magnetic after cold working.

In fact, the 201 stainless steel plate is considered to be one of the most affordable stainless steel plates. If you are looking for a supplier of high quality stainless steel sheet at a reasonable price, the Shandong Hongqi Material Co., Ltd. is a very good choice.
