Austenitic Stainless Steel

Austenitic, characterized by its high nickel content (over 8%) and a face-centered cubic crystal structure, stands out in the stainless steel family. This steel type combines excellent mechanical properties with superior corrosion resistance, making it a popular choice in environments where corrosion stability is a priority.

What is Austenitic Stainless Steel


Austenitic, characterized by high chromium (over 18%) and nickel (around 8%) content, along with trace amounts of molybdenum, titanium, and nitrogen, assumes an austenitic structure at room temperature. Common grades include 1Cr18Ni9 and 0Cr19Ni9, with “0” indicating a carbon content of less than 0.08% for grades like 0Cr19Ni9.

Key Features of Austenitic Stainless Steel

Austenitic SS boasts excellent plasticity, toughness, weldability, and corrosion resistance, along with being non-magnetic. It performs exceptionally well in both oxidizing and reducing environments, making it ideal for crafting acid-resistant equipment, lining, pipelines, and components resistant to nitric acid. It’s also the preferred material for high-quality stainless steel watches and timepieces.

Austenitic Steel Remarks

Typically, austenitic SS undergoes solution treatment, heated to 1050-1150°C and then rapidly cooled, to ensure a stable austenitic structure. This process enhances its corrosion resistance, plasticity, and formability, making it ideal for parts needing post-heat treatment processing, alleviating cold-work hardening, and for welded pieces.
