INTRODUCTION TO 303 STAINLESS STEEL
Stainless steel is a robust, viable, and environmentally safe investment. There is always the best rationale to choose stainless steel. The elite uniqueness of stainless steel offers a range of utilities and ensures its optimization in the future run.
The five major sorts of stainless steels are austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex and precipitation hardening. Austenitic stainless steel is prevalent and stylish stainless steel. 300 series is a subgroup of austenitic stainless steel and its applications are irrevocable. Grade 303 is also designated as 1.4305 stainless steel in European standards. Grade 303 has the superior machinability in all grade of austenitic stainless steel.
Grade 303 is a modified improved version of grade 304 stainless steel. It is non-magnetic stainless steel specially designed to impart superior machinability with m good mechanical characteristics. It has a machinability rating of approximately 80%.
Grade 303 has a basic stainless steel composition of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The addition of sulfur gives the premium feature of improved machining in stainless steel grades. Additionally, sulfur improvises galling properties. On contrary, grade 303 offers lower corrosion resistance when compared to grade 304 stainless steel. Sulfur also lowers its ability in procuring corrosion resistance and decreases its toughness minutely.
Grade 303 exhibits mild to moderate resistance. It is prone to pitting and stress corrosion cracking in chloride corrosive mediums. Grade 303 has good oxidation resistance. Its strength and hardness can be amplified substantially with cold working treatments.
Grade 303 is the appropriate selection for the applications demanding heavy machining. It is mainly used in industries that connect to extensive heavy machining in mechanical automation. Grade 303 is typically used in the productions of nuts and bolts, aircraft fittings, and bushings.
