Abstract

Thanks to their specific features (such as corrosion resistance, resistance to high temperatures, good mechanical properties, unique physicochemical and aesthetic properties) stainless steels are practically applied in many areas, including construction and architecture, energy production, household appliances, automotive, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Stainless steel products are usually manufactured from three basic steel grades: 301, 304, 314 or 316L, which are high in nickel content. The increase in the price of this raw material has led the stainless steel manufacturers to look for alternative steel grades whose use allows for a significant reduction in production costs while maintaining the same material properties. The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of cold drawing on the structure and properties of 204Cu steel. The tested grade belongs to the cost-effective group of stainless steels, and it can be used as a cheaper alternative to products with similar mechanical properties, while maintaining high corrosion resistance.
