Alloy 904L UNS N08904
UNS NO8904, commonly known as 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.
Alloy 904L has a high resistance to pitting in chloride solutions, a high resistance to both crevice and stress corrosion cracking. This grade performs better than other austenitic stainless steels due to the higher alloying of nickel and molybdenum. Alloy 904L is particularly useful in control and instrumentation tubing applications where 316 and 317L are not suitable.
