302 Stainless Round Bar Stock

A wide range of conventional welding processes effectively binds 304 stainless steel.

302 Stainless

A similar steel grade 304 is 302. Both have nearly identical chemical compositions.

The only difference in their chemistry is the higher content of Carbon in grade 304, which gives it a higher hardness than grade 304. The alloying costs for these two stainless steels would be in the same or similar range due to these considerations.

Machinability & Welding

A wide range of conventional welding processes effectively joins 304 stainless steel. When welding this alloy, it is necessary to anneal the alloy to work properly.

 

The effectiveness of a post-weld annealing treatment contributes to restoring the material’s corrosion resistance properties after welding. Typically, welding without the application of an annealing treatment results in a reduction in corrosion resistance properties due to increased sensitivity to intergranular corrosion.

Applications

Dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators wire forming are just some of the many applications of 302 Stainless.
