303 is one of the most popular of all the free machining stainless steels. It offers good strength, corrosion resistance and
great machinability. It will resist scaling at temperatures up to 1600 F(871 C).
Used in an incredibly wide variety of parts both in screw and general machining industries. Applications include hardware,
fasteners, valve parts, nozzles and trim.
Excellent speeds and feeds are capable with this material. The addition of sulfur causes a very brittle chip. Many companies
now offer premium machinability grades, such as CarTech with their Project 70 and 7000 series.
Resistant to a variety of organic and inorganic chemicals, fresh water and atmospheric corrosion.
Although not recommended, welding may be performed if low temperatures are employed. Recommended filler metal is
AWS E/ER312. At high temperature, the sulfur in 303 tends to precipitate at the weld boundary resulting in weak and brittle joints
Forging and upsetting may commence once the workpiece has been thoroughly heated to 2100-2300 F (1149-1260 C).
It is not recommended to work this material below 1700 F (927 C). Rapid post-work cooling will optimize corrosion performance.
Minor deformation is possible with this alloy, although it is not its strong point. Type 303 Se is superior in this aspect
1850-1950 F (1010-1066 C), followed by rapid cooling is the recommended practice.
This alloy does not respond to hardening by heat treatment. Cold work will raise both the hardness and strength characteristics
- Density (lb / cu. in.) : 0.282
- Specific Gravity : 7.84
- Specific Heat (Btu/lb/Deg F - [32-212 Deg F]) : 0.12
- Electrical Resistivity (microhm-cm (at 68 Deg F)) : 432
- Melting Point (Deg F) : 2650
