Stainless Steel grade 304 crucibles, a hardier and longer lasting alternative to porcelain.
Crucibles in Stainless Steel 304 (alternatively known as an 18/8 alloy) designed for corrosion resistance and durability, ideal for routine laboratory use. 18% Chromium and 8% nickel.
For use over temperatures from -196 to +550°C
Please note that chlorides pose a high risk of pitting corrosion, depending on concentrations. Therefore these crucibles are not recommended for use with Hydrochloric Acid. Not recommended for use with Phosphoric acid at concentrations over 80% or at high temperatures. Not recommended for use with Nitric acid at concentrations of over 60% or at high temperatures.
