The austenite crystalline microstructure of Stainless Steel 304 round bar is achieved by the addition of manganese as well as nickel to its alloy. The ss 304 flat bar is a stainless steel grade that can be enveloped by two different ASTM specifications i.e ASTM A479 as well as ASTM A276.
While specification ASTM A479 specifically refers to the ASME SA479 grade 304 round bar being utilized in boiler and pressure vessel applications, the other specification i.e. ASTM A276 specifically defers the ASME SA276 grade 304 rod for reforging as well as free machining grades. ASTM a276 type 304 round bar can be made available in various conditions i.e. Condition A, H, B, S and T.
Each condition has different furnishing requirements for instance Condition A indicates the bar is annealed, Condition H is a bar that has been hardened and tempered at a relative temperature, Condition T, on the other hand, has been hardened and tempered at a relatively high temperature, Condition S is when the a276 grade 304 rod is furnished in a strain hardened or relatively light cold worked, and lastly, Condition B furnished 304 Stainless Steel rod is relatively severe cold worked. The ASTM A479 type 304 bar is subjected to heat treatment and a corrosion test.

Difference between SS 304 bright bar and black bar
The bright bar is a polished or finished metallic bar where the black bar has no finishing or polishing applied. The 304 material is an austenitic stainless steel. It is a chromium nickel alloy with 18% chromium and 8% nickel. When produced, if no polishing or finishing is done, the bar looks blackish with and raw. There are finishing options such as bright bar, electropolishing, galvanizing, painting and zinc coating. The bright bar is used in applications that also have an aesthetic appeal and the need for oxidation resistance on the surface. The black bar is used in structural elements where the look or the oxidation are not primary concerns.
