1Cr17Mn6Ni5N is a new steel grade that includes 12Cr17Mn6Ni5N and 201C. 201C is an improved version of the 201 steel developed in China. It has reduced impurity content and increased purity compared to other steels in the 200 series. The main 200 series steels are the following: L1, LH, LA, L4, J1, J3, J4, and also Steel 20-1.
200 series stainless steel was produced in the United States during World War II as a replacement for 300 series stainless steel. As a result of the war, production of the material was limited due to state control of the material and a shortage of stainless steel supplies within the United States. To solve the problem of stainless steel production and supply, a series of manganese-based austenitic stainless steels were developed in the United States when sufficient chromium-nickel resources were not available.
After the end of the Second World War, nickel resources in the United States gradually increased. Production of 300 series stainless steels was limited due to material shortages, so 200 series stainless steels were not further developed. Many of the Indians involved in the development of 200 series stainless sheets of steel returned to India. Based on the fact that India is rich in manganese resources but lacks nickel resources, the 200 series stainless steel types developed in the United States may be introduced into India.

Production Process of 201 Stainless Steel Sheets&Plates
Select raw materials that meet the requirements and perform chemical composition analysis, melting and casting.
Hot Rolling Processing
Stainless steel that has been cast into billets is heated to the appropriate temperature, and the billets are processed into plates that meet the specifications through multiple processes such as continuous casting, rough rolling, medium rolling and finishing rolling.
Through the pickling process, the impurities such as oxide, rust scale and grease are removed from the surface of stainless steel to ensure the cleanliness and flatness of the plate surface.
Inspection and Packaging

201 stainless steel and 304 stainless steel are two common stainless steel materials, which have some differences in chemical composition, physical properties, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, etc.
Chemical Composition: 201 stainless steel contains higher levels of manganese and nitrogen, while 304 stainless steel contains more chromium and nickel.
Physical Properties: 201 stainless steel is slightly less dense than 304 stainless steel and has a smaller modulus of elasticity.
Mechanical Properties: 201 stainless steel is slightly less hard than 304 stainless steel but has better ductility and plasticity.
Corrosion Resistance: 304 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance than 201 stainless steel, especially for chloride ions.
Applications: 201 stainless steel is widely used in decoration, construction, furniture, kitchen utensils, and other fields, while 304 stainless steel is more suitable for high-end kitchenware, chemical equipment, medical equipment, and other fields.
201 stainless steel and 202 stainless steel are two common 2-series stainless steels with the following differences between them:
Chemical Composition: 201 stainless steel has a higher chemical composition of nickel and manganese, while 202 stainless steel has a higher content of chromium and copper.
Different Performance: 201 stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion and heat than 202 stainless steel, but 202 stainless steel is more resistant to wear and fatigue.
Different Applications: As 201 stainless steel is more corrosion and heat-resistant, it is usually used in the manufacture of kitchen appliances, stoves, ovens, refrigeration equipment, and other products that need to be used in high-temperature environments; while 202 stainless steel is more suitable for the manufacture of abrasives, bearings, pump parts and other products that need resistance to wear and corrosion.
Series 2 stainless steels are a family of stainless steels that contain high levels of manganese and nitrogen. Some of the common 2 series stainless steels are 201, 202, 205, 241, 2304 and 2205. Of these, 201 and 202 are the most common 2-series stainless steels and are suitable for many general uses such as the manufacture of kitchen appliances and household items. 205 and 241 are 2-series stainless steels that are specifically used for the manufacture of high temperature equipment and high strength applications. 2304 and 2205 are duplex stainless steels that are high strength and corrosion resistant and are suitable for harsh environments such as the marine and chemical industries.
Yes, 201 stainless steel can meet food standards. There are many different grades of stainless steel, including 201 and 304, among others. All of these grades of stainless steel can be used to manufacture equipment and appliances that come into contact with food. With proper manufacturing and handling processes, 201 stainless steel can meet the relevant standards and requirements of the food industry. However, to ensure that 201 stainless steel is suitable for a specific food application, appropriate testing and verification is required.
Compared to other stainless steel materials, 201 stainless steel sheet is relatively easy to process. 201 stainless steel sheet has high plasticity and malleability, and can be processed in a variety of ways, such as cutting, bending, forming, stamping and welding. However, it should be noted that due to the low strength of 201 stainless steel plate, it needs to be handled with care when carrying out some more complex processing to avoid deformation of the plate or other quality problems. In addition, the physical and chemical properties of the 201 stainless steel sheet should be understood before processing to select the appropriate processing process and tools to ensure processing quality and efficiency.
The service life of 201 stainless steel sheet varies depending on the environment it is in and the conditions of use, and is usually affected by the following factors:
Corrosive Environment: The corrosion resistance of 201 stainless steel sheets is relatively low, and if used in an environment of strong acid, strong alkali, or high salinity, corrosion is likely to occur, resulting in a shortened service life.
Processing Process: 201 stainless steel sheets are prone to deformation and cracking during processing, which may have an impact on the service life if not processed properly.
Temperature Change: 201 stainless steel plate has a weak antioxidant capacity, and is prone to oxidation when used in a high-temperature environment for a long time, resulting in a shortened service life.
Maintenance: If maintenance is not carried out correctly, such as not cleaning and applying anti-rust oil in a timely manner, it will make the surface of 201 stainless steel plate easy to stain and rust stains, which will affect the service life.
Overall, if the 201 stainless steel plate is properly used and maintained, its service life can reach more than 10 years.
The following are some suggestions that can help extend the service life of 201 stainless steel sheets:
Keep it Clean: Regular cleaning of stainless steel surfaces can prevent the accumulation of impurities and dirt that can prevent corrosion from occurring. Using professional stainless steel cleaners and polishes can help clean the surface and maintain the luster.
Avoid Physical Damage: Avoid using sharp tools or heavy objects in direct contact with the stainless steel surface to avoid scratching or denting.
Control the Use Environment: 201 stainless steel sheet is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, but caution is needed when using in high temperature, strong acid or strong alkali environments. Avoid electrochemical reactions when stainless steel is in contact with other metals, such as the battery effect.
Regular Maintenance: regularly inspect and maintain the state of use of 201 stainless steel sheets, including surface condition and connection points. Repair or replace the problematic parts in a timely manner.
