Type 201 stainless steel (UNS S 20100) is a low nickel, high-work hardening, austenitic chromium-nickel-manganese stainless steel that was developed to conserve nickel. It does not harden with heat treatment but can be work hardened to high tensile strengths. This alloy is also often polished for cosmetic applications.
201 Stainless steel applications including:
Type 301 stainless steel (UNS S 30100) is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel that can attain high tensile strength and ductility by cold-working.
301 stainless steel applications including:
Type 304 stainless steel (UNS S 30400) is the most common austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel. It can be used in a multitude of applications.
304 stainless steel applications including: automotive, air bag sensors, appliances, beer barrels, chemical equipment, clamps, cooling coils, cryogenic components, dairy equipment, evaporators, food handling equipment, hinges, hypodermic needles, marine, milking machines, motors, nuclear vessels and components, oil well filter screens, pressure vessels, sanitary fittings, shipping drums, textile dyeing equipment.
Type 310/310S (UNS S31000/S31008) is an austenitic stainless steel that can withstand high temperatures and has great resistance to oxidation and creep deformation.
310 stainless steel flat rolled coil is primarily used for high-temperature situations.
310 & 310S Stainless Steel applications including:
Type 316L (UNS S31603) stainless steel has an extra-low carbon content and is a variation of Type 316. The low carbon content is necessary for welding applications where avoiding carbide precipitation is key. 316/316L stainless steel flat rolled coil is mainly used in welding applications where corrosion resistance is a concern.
316/316L stainless steel applications including:
Type 430 (UNS S43000) is a ferritic stainless steel that has resistance to oxidation up to 1500ºF along with good ductility and corrosion resistance. This alloy is also often polished for cosmetic applications.
430 stainless steel applications including:
