CF3 material is a specific material designation used in valve manufacturing. CF3 is a cast version of stainless steel grade 304L, which is a low-carbon variation of stainless steel 304. The CF3 equivalent material offers excellent corrosion resistance, particularly in environments where sensitization to intergranular corrosion is a concern.
Valves made from CF3 stainless steel are commonly used in applications that require resistance to corrosive fluids such as acids, chemicals, and some organic compounds. The CF3 material equivalent provides good mechanical properties, high strength, and good weldability.
