310 Stainless

310 Stainless Steel Supplier

Stainless Shapes is a trusted 310 Stainless Steel supplier. 310 Stainless is an austenitic stainless steel that combines excellent high-temperature properties with good ductility and weldability. It is typically used for elevated temperature applications as its high chromium and nickel content provide solid corrosion resistance, excellent resistance to oxidation, and superior strength in temperatures up to 2100°F. Due to its high chromium and nickel content, it is superior to 304 or 309 stainless in most environments.


310 StainlessMachinability – Heat uniformly at 1742 – 2192°F (950 – 1200°C). After hot forming a final anneal at 1832 – 2101°F (1000 – 1150°C), we recommend rapid quenching. The alloy is quite ductile and forms in a manner very similar to 316. We don not recommend cold forming of pieces with long-term exposure to high temperatures.This is because the the alloy is subject to carbide precipitation and sigma phase precipitants.

Corrosion Resistance – 310 stainless steel boasts exceptional resistance to oxidation at temperatures up to 2000°F under mild cyclic conditions. Its high chromium and medium nickel content provide good resistance to sulfidation and hot corrosion. This makes 310 ideal for use in moderately carburizing atmospheres commonly found in petrochemical environments.

Composition – Chromium and Nickel dominate this stainless steel, which results in exceptional corrosion resistance and good sulfidation resistance. Although other metals make up about 50% of the composition, Iron remains the majority component for balance..
