304 stainless steel how much is a ton?

304 Stainless Steel is a versatile stainless steel with a density of 7.93g/cc, also known in the industry as 18/8 stainless steel. Its high temperature resistance is 800℃, has the characteristics of good processing performance, high toughness. To maintain the inherent corrosion resistance of stainless steel, the steel must contain more than 18% chromium and 8% nickel. 304 is the American ASTM grade, corresponding to the Chinese 06Cr19Ni10. 304 stainless steel has a wide range of applications, and its price fluctuation is also a concern of the stainless steel market. The factors affecting its price are as follows:.

First, the composition of 304 stainless steel is the raw material of stainless steel. The raw materials of 304 stainless steel are mainly chromium chromium and nickel nickel. The price of some raw materials plays a decisive role in the price of stainless steel. As the price of raw materials rises, so does the price of stainless steel. Nickel has good ductility and corrosion resistance. The stainless steel market pays close attention to the global nickel price trend, especially the LME nickel price trend. Also pay attention to the global iron ore, molybdenum price trend and the latest developments, as well as other non-ferrous metal price trend.

The second is inventory. Supply and demand have always influenced market prices, and inventories properly reflect the current market supply and demand relationship. 304 stainless steel widely used, many steel mills mass production, supply exceeds demand, inventory backlog, stainless steel prices have fallen. Steel mills have limited products and demand exceeds supply, so inventories are very tight and prices are rising.

Again, in comparison, the price of 304 stainless steel is a little high. In 304 stainless steel raw material, the required nickel element is very scarce in some countries, in the stainless steel market there will be 304 stainless steel substitutes, such as the 200 series stainless steel. Substitutes generally have many advantages, such as low price, cheap materials, superior performance, etc. Therefore, the emergence of substitutes will also cause price fluctuations.

A lot of stainless steel friends are concerned about stainless steel quotes every day. Due to the fluctuation of nickel and other prices, stainless steel prices vary from day to day.

Some customers ask how much 304 costs per ton. When I meet such customers, I will basically take the initiative to guide them, such as asking them what thickness and specification they want. Hot or cold rolled.

Ask these questions clearly, combined with the price of Tianlun Nickel industry, we can make a quotation. When quoting, it is recommended to refer to the theoretical weight table of stainless steel plate.

The rows are like mountains. In many cases, it's not that customers don't want to make it clear, but because customers don't understand the stainless steel industry. Therefore, as a qualified stainless steel sales personnel, must be patient and sincere to understand the real needs of customers, to help customers. Solve problems and guide customers.
