Grade 404GP can be used instead of grade 304 stainless steel in most applications. The corrosion resistance of grade 404GP is at least as good as grade 304, often better: it is not affected by stress corrosion cracking in hot water, and is not subject to sensitisation when welded.
Grade 404GP is a new generation ferritic stainless steel made by a premium Japanese mill with state-of-the-art new generation steelmaking technology by Vacuum Oxygen Decarburising (VOD) to achieve Extremely Low Carbon content (ELC). A special addition of titanium neutralises the remaining carbon.
The very high chromium content – 21% - of grade 404GP makes it clearly superior to the common ferritic grade 430 for corrosion resistance. All ferritic grades.
Stainless steel grade 445M2 is a ferritic stainless steel with excellent resistance to corrosion in the atmosphere and in waters. The steel is a development of grade 444, with extremely low carbon and addition of nitrogen, molybdenum and niobium for improved corrosion resistance and weldability. Nisshin Steel manufactures the product to internal product specifications. Nisshin Steel is one of the largest manufacturers of stainless steel in Japan.
