Pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry finds.
This material has excellent resistance to rust and a wide range of chemically aggressive media.
V2A is an acid-resistant 18/10 chromium-nickel steel which, due to its low carbon content after welding, is intergranularly resistant to sheet thicknesses up to 5 mm even without subsequent heat treatment.
It is approved for temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius.
The weldability after all electrical processes is good. The steel has very good polishability and particularly good formability by deep drawing, bending and roll forming (stainless steel sheet).
Common designations for corrosion- and acid-resistant steel are stainless, Inox, Stainless, VA, V2A, V4A or common material numbers such as 1.4301, 1.4305, 1.4571 and 1.4404..
