Stainless steel V2A is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel. It is also known as 18/8 stainless steel. This is chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steel. The chromium element gives it excellent corrosion resistance. It has a tensile strength of 500 – 700 MPa. It has good machinability but low thermal conductivity. It is used in kitchen equipment such as pans, tubes, sinks and many more. It is easily formable. Due to its excellent resistance to corrosion, it is widely used in the food and beverage industry, as well as in many other industries.
