General information about stainless steel:

V2A is the general term for the most frequently used stainless steel, which is used for example in the construction of railings, vehicles and kitchens and is used in the beverage, food and pharmaceutical industries.

V4A is similar to V2A stainless steel but is additionally alloyed with 2% Mo. This results in becoming more resistant to corrosion in chloride-containing (saline) media. The V4A stainless steel is used in areas with salt water, swimming pools and the chemical industry.

Other designations for the stainless steel are stainless steel, stainless steel, stainless steel, V2A, V4A or the current material numbers 1.4301, 1.4305, 1.4571 and 1.4404.

In order to obtain an exact composition and material names, the stainless steel is specified in DIN 17440 by material numbers. DIN 17440 has now been replaced by the European DIN EN 10088. In this case, further stainless steel grades have been added

Exact names for the stainless steel we have in use are:

V2A: WNo. 1.4301 or also AISI 304 or V2A (X5CrNi189)

V4A: WNr 1.4571 or also AISI 316 or V4A (X10CrNiMoTil810)
