Is 304 stainless steel pipe magnetic?

Many people will say that stainless steel is not magnetic. This is the most basic knowledge. Don't you even know this? Even the hawker who collects scraps knows how to carry a magnet with him to check whether it is stainless steel or not, so that the price can be judged more accurately. In fact, this common sense can only be simply applied in life, and the magnetism of stainless steel cannot be defined in a single sentence. As a very common material, is 304 stainless steel pipe magnetic?

Iron is magnetic, so it can be attracted by magnets, while stainless steel is added with other elements, and different crystal structures are formed during the smelting process, which will affect the magnetic performance of the final product. Most types of stainless steel are not magnetic, but some specifications of stainless steel are indeed magnetic. 304 stainless steel pipe is a steel pipe made of 304 stainless steel. This material is usually non-magnetic or very weak. However, some accidental factors in the production and smelting process will also cause some changes in the microstructure of the final product, resulting in weak magnetism. Therefore, it cannot be said that 304 stainless steel pipe is absolutely non-magnetic.

We can't just rely on a simple magnet method to judge whether the 304 stainless steel pipe is magnetic. We should use a more accurate method to judge, so that the judgment result will not go wrong.
