Austenitic stainless steel refers to stainless steel with an austenitic structure at room temperature. Austenitic stainless steel is one of the five classes of stainless steel by crystalline structure (along with ferritic, martensitic, duplex and precipitation hardened). In some areas, the austentite stainless steel is also called the 300 series stainless steel. When the steel contains about 18% Cr, 8%-25% Ni, and about 0.1% C, it has a stable austenite structure. Austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel includes the famous 18Cr-8Ni steel and the high Cr-Ni series steel developed by adding Cr and Ni content and adding Mo, Cu, Si, Nb, Ti and other elements on this basis. Austenitic stainless steel is non-magnetic and has high toughness and plasticity, but its strength is low, and it is impossible to strengthen it through phase transformation. It can only be strengthened by cold working. If elements such as S, Ca, Se, Te are added, it has good properties of machinability.

CF8M is a cast austenitic stainless steel which covered by ASTM A351, ASTM A743 and ASTM A744 standard. CF8M equal to SS 316/F 316 and Chinese Standard 0Cr17Ni12Mo2. CF8M is a molybdenum bearing modification of CF8 alloy and is the cast equivalent of wrought AISI 316 Stainless steel. The presence of molybdenum increases the general corrosion resistance and the resistance to pitting by chlorides. The alloy is used in mildly acidic and alkaline conditions and for handling citric, oxalic and phosphoric acids. Stainless steel CF8M is mostly the same as SS 316, F 316 and TP 316. But they are defined in different standards, and their chemical and mechancial properties are a little different too. CF8M is defined in ASMT A351, ASMT A743 and ASTM A744, which is for casting purpose only. SS 316 is defined in ASTM A240 and ASTM A276, it's for plate, sheet, strip or stainless steel bars. Another grade is named as F316, which is from ASTM A182 for forged parts only. TP316 will be found in ATSTM A376 for pipe only. The main applications of CF8M cast stainless steel cover: impellors, propellers, pump casings, valve bodies and press plates. The usual heat treatment for CF8M is solid Solution by heating to more than 1900 °F (1040 °C), holding for sufficient time and then quenching in water or rapid cool by other means.
