  Grade 303 (AISI 303)

Grade 303 or the UNS S30300 stainless steel bar, is free machining steel. Its impressive corrosion resistance and great machinability makes it one of the most used free machining stainless steels obtainable. UNS S30300 or Grade 303 is extensively used in different products starting from general machining like screw etc. Grade 303 is not responsive to hear treatment, but its impressive toughness is admirable just as with all the other austenitic grades.

  Grade 303 is used in following Industries:
bullet All-purpose machining
bullet Screw machining
  Products manufactured using Grade 303 (completely or partially) are:
bullet Bushings
bullet Aircraft fittings
bullet Gears
bullet Bushings
bullet Nuts and Bolts
bullet Screws
  Grade 304/304L (AISI 304/304L)

Grade 304/304L or UNS S30403 as it’s called technically, in general is preferred due to the fact that it is the low carbon content variant of Type 304 and because it is “free machining” variant. The Grade 304/304L comes with immense blend of corrosion resistance, strength and fabricibility, which makes it suitable for almost in all types of industries. The Grade 304/304L also is unresponsive to heat treatments, but the strength and hardness could be increased using cold working.

Grade 304/304L is used in almost every industry.

  Grade 304/304L is used for manufacturing the following products (partially or completely):
bullet Architectural railings, paneling and trim
bullet Chemical containers, even for transport
bullet Kitchen benches, sinks troughs, equipment & appliances
bullet Food processing equipment
bullet Woven or welded screens for quarrying, mining and water filtration
bullet Threaded fastener
bullet Springs
  Grade 316/316L (AISI 316/316L)

The Grade 316/316L also called as Grade 316 and UNS S31600 is an austenitic stainless steel which has chromium, molybdenum and nickel as its major alloying elements. Molybdenum (is not present in stainless steel Grade 304) addition is helpful for Grade 316/316L’s increased resistance in chloride environments and salt water. Grade 316/316L gives quite good creep resistance in high temperatures and it has better strength in comparison to stainless steel 304.

Grade 316/316L is non-magnetic in annealed state, but it can become a little magnetic while under extensively cold temperatures, and requires further annealing to correct. Grade 316/316L isn’t responsive to thermal treatment but it’s strength and hardness can be increased by cold working.

Grade 316/316L stainless steel technically referred as UNS S31600/S31603 UNS S31600/S31603 and generally called as stainless steel 316/316L. Dual Certified is stainless steel 316’s low carbon content modification. Grade 316/316L stainless steel primarily is used for manufacturing heavy-gage welded products. Grade 316/316L is anti carbide precipitation and it can be used in the 797° F to 1580° F temperature range, which is more apt with application connecting corrosion resistance.

  Industries that uses Grade 316/316L:
bullet Chemical
bullet Architectural (in corrosive environments)
bullet Mining
bullet Marine
bullet Pharmaceutical
bullet Petroleum
bullet Textile
bullet Pulp and Paper
bullet Water filtration
bullet Transportation
  Products which make use of Grade 316/316L include:
bullet Compression fittings
bullet Ball valves
bullet Hardware
bullet Flanges
bullet Hose fittings
bullet Heat exchangers
bullet Laboratory benches
bullet Jewelry
bullet Pressure reducing valves
bullet Laboratory gear
bullet Strainers
bullet Springs
bullet Threaded fasteners
  Grade 416 (AISI 416)

Grade 416, also called UNS S41600 is a Martensitic grade of stainless steel. The Martensitic stainless steels have been manufactured as an alloy, which could be toughened using heat treatment and it also will be corrosion resistant, though it is not as resistive to corrosion as the ferritic or austenitic stainless steels. Stainless Steel 416 has respectable wear resistant, and is magnetic; it also is highly machinable. Its other qualities include: non-galling and non-seizing properties, sensible strength in hardened and tempered state and resistance to gently corrosive surroundings. Generally it’s ordered in T (tempered), H (hardened) and A (annealed) conditions.

Stainless Steel 416 doesn’t come with the approval to be used in high sulfur surroundings (MR-01-03, NACE MR-01-75). Stainless Steel 416 is in general considered as the first “free machining” stainless steel and has the capability to be easily tapped, turned, reamed, broached, threaded milled and drilled according to manufacturer's approval for different suitable tool feeds, types and speeds.

  Industries using Grade 416 include:
bullet Electrical motor
bullet Nut and Bolt
bullet Gear
bullet Pump
bullet Valve
  Products made of Grade 416 (partially or completely) include:
bullet Axles
bullet Fasteners
bullet Bolts
bullet Motor shafts
bullet Gears
bullet Pinions
bullet Nuts
bullet Screw machine parts
bullet Pump shafts
bullet Studs
bullet Washing machine components
bullet Valve parts
  Grade 630 (AISI 17-4)

The 17-4 stainless steel bar, also called as UNS S17400, Grade 630 and 17-4 PH was developed in the 50s and is called one of the original precipitation hardened grades. It is mainly comprised of 4% nickel, 17% chromium and 4% copper with the balance being iron. There also are trace amounts of phosphorus, manganese, silicon, sulfur, tantalum and columbium (or niobium). 17-4 PH Stainless Steel comes with a blend of corrosion and oxidation resistance. Some other characteristics include toughness, excellence in mechanical properties and high strength at temperatures equaling to 600° F. the 17-4 PH Stainless Steel is preferred by engineers because of its high strength and higher corrosion resistance in comparison to several other stainless steel grades.

17-4 PH Stainless Steel can easily be forged, formed and welded. Machining might be done in its ultimate heat treat condition or during the solution-annealed state. The desired mechanical properties such as strength and ductility can easily be attained through heating the components at different temperatures.

  Industries which use 17-4 PH include:
bullet Chemical
bullet Aerospace
bullet General metal working
bullet Food processing
bullet Petrochemical
bullet Paper industries
bullet Petroleum
  Products that are made from 17-4 PH Stainless Steel include:
