Stainless Steel Alloy 310S

Type 310S is a low carbon austenitic stainless steel. Known for its ability to withstand high temperature applications, Type 310S, which is a lower carbon version of Type 310, also offers users an array of benefits including:

  • Outstanding corrosion resistance
  • Good aqueous corrosion resistance
  • Not prone to thermal fatigue and cyclic heating
  • Superior to Type 304 and 309 in most environments
  • Good strength in temperatures up to 2100°F

Because of Type 310S’s excellent general properties a wide range of industries use Type 310S for an number of different applications including:

  • Furnaces
  • Oil burners
  • Heat exchangers
  • Welding filler wire and electrodes
  • Cryogenics
  • Kilns
  • Food processing equipment

One reason for these unique properties is Type 310S’s specific chemical make-up that includes:

  • Fe balance
  • Cr 24-26%
  • NI 19-22%
  • C 0.08%
  • Si 0.75%-1%
  • Mn 2%
  • P .045%
  • S 0.35%
  • Mo 0.75%
  • Cu 0.5%

Continental Steel supplies Type 310S in a number of different sizes and shapes including sheet, plate, bar, pipe, tube, and wire. All of Continental Steel’s Type 310S stainless steel meets international standards like ASTM, UNS, and DIN.
