CF8 Stainless Steel Properties, Composition & Equivalent
CF8 ASTM A743 / A744 / A351 Grade（UNS）：J92600 Alloy Family: Austenitic stainless steel Equivalent: 304 stainless steel
What is CF8 Stainless Steel ?
CF8 is equivalent to Chinese model zg0cr18ni9, corresponding to 304 stainless steel
It is austenitic stainless steel, which is used as stainless steel heat-resistant steel. Food equipment, general equipment, and atomic energy industrial equipment.
This kind of alloy is the most common steel. It has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low-temperature strength, and mechanical properties. 304 stainless steel has good workability at room temperature and will not harden after heat treatment.
CF8 chemical composition
Heat to 1900°F [1040°C] minimum, hold for sufficient time to heat casting to temperature, quench in water or rapid cool by other means
|Reduction of Area, min / %||–|

304 stainless steel
304 stainless steel is a common material in stainless steel, the density is 7.93 g / cm3, also known as 18 / 8 stainless steel in the industry. It is used in industry, furniture decoration industry, and food and medical industry.
In short, the difference between 304 vs 316 stainless steel is mainly reflected in price and corrosion resistance. If you want to apply in a high corrosive environment, 316 stainless steel can greatly increase the service life. If not, 304 stainless steel can be used.
