Corrosion-Resistant and Versatile: 302 Stainless Steel Bar

Resilient and Reliable: 302 Stainless Steel Bar

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.

O'Hare 302 Stainless Steel Bar

This stainless grade is the most popular type of stainless steel bar. It is a general-purpose grade of stainless steel with many advantages over other qualities.

The 302 stainless steel round bar is a general-purpose grade of stainless steel, meaning it can be used for various applications. This grade offers excellent corrosion resistance, strength, flexibility, and weldability. It is an economical material to use in many applications and can be used in both hot and cold environments.

It has many advantages over other grades of stainless steel. The first advantage is that this material offers excellent corrosion resistance, meaning it will not rust or corrode unless exposed to extreme environments or conditions for long periods.

O’Hare Precision Metals can provide a wide range of company-supplied or customer-supplied components and materials. Just like how we can offer you the best steel stock in O’Hare!

Machinability & Welding

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

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


Dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators wire forming are just some of the many application of this grade.
