310 Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel Grade 310

310-pipe

Stainless Steel 310 was designed to be the low carbon version of SS 310, a medium carbon stainless steel. 310 has many of the same characteristics and applications as 310, such as the ability to withstand high temperatures, resistance to oxidation and corrosion, and machinability similar to that of Type 304.

Composed of 20% nickel and 25% chromium, 310 is efficient in reducing environments such as those that contain sulfur. Combined with its low carbon content, the metal is also effective at resisting embrittlement. The metal is commonly utilized in extreme conditions, such as furnace manufacturing and heat treating equipment.

While both hot and work practices can be applied, cold working is not commonly done on Stainless Steel 310; however, it is the only way to work harden the metal. This resistance to cold temperatures is useful in cryogenic environments, as 310 is incredibly tough.
