The AISI/SS 436 / 436L Plates are the steel plates which are made of ferritic stainless steel. They are generally austenitic stainless steel. It has the best working at annealed conditions. It is having high ductility and low electric conductivity and thus it is the best kind of steel plate for the industrial purpose in every kind of industry. This grade of stainless steel plate is resistive towards corrosion due to oxidation and other toxic gases. They are very appropriate for the use in the chemical industries. They are also resistive to nitric and sulphuric acid and also they are resistive to the atmospheric moisture and steam vapors.
The Stainless Steel 436 / 436L plates are also having good mechanical properties thus they can withstand easily against pitting corrosion and cracking, and also they are having good tensile strength. They are also heat resistive. These are having austenitic steel and preferable for cold working. These stainless steel plates are also good at welding. They do not require any preheating and can be welded directly.
These steel plates have been undergone with the following test like
• Magnetic response- this is done to check the magnetic response of the steel. Austenitic stainless steel is generally non-reactive to the magnetic field even at high temperature.
• Nitric acid reaction- it is strongly resistive towards the attack of nitric acid.
• Molybdenum spot test- this is done to check the composition of molybdenum in the steel plate.
These are the following test conducted to test the AISI/SS 436 / 436L Plate at Panchdeep metal.
