Applications

Description

304Cu is applicable to certain unique uses due to its' increased copper content. The increased copper content provides increased corrosion resistance and a higher level of machinability across a wide range of operations. These benefits, along with the cold formability of the alloy make it an optimum solution for many challenging end uses. 304Cu Stainless Steel in the cold worked state has shown consistent success across machine shops due to its' properties.
