Stainless Steel Alloy 302

Type 302 Stainless Steel is a popular austenitic and non-magnetic stainless steel that is known for its toughness and ductility.  Although very similar to 304 Stainless Steel, Type 302 has  more carbon and a good record of corrosion resistance. Though it does have a tendency to work harden, this can be overcome by slow speeds and high feeds.

You will find Type 302 in use in a variety of applications and products including:

  • Stamping
  • Spinning
  • Wire Forming
  • Washers
  • Form Springs
  • Spring Clips
  • Retainers
  • Screens
  • Cables

To be considered Type 302, a stainless steel must be composed of the follow:

  • Cr 17-19%
  • Ni 8-10%
  • Mn 2%
  • Si 1%
  • C 0.15%
  • S 0.03%
  • P 0.045%

Type 302 has tensile strength of 8990 psi and a yield strength of 39900 psi. Continental Steel is proud to be a supplier of Type 302 Stainless Steel in a variety of forms such as sheet, plate, wire, and strip. All of our stainless steel supplies meet or exceed the most exacting industry standards.
