301 Stainless Steel

AISI 301 Stainless Steel

Overview: 301 Stainless Steel

AISI 301 stainless steel is a notable austenitic alloy recognized for its exceptional fatigue resistance. Each instance of cold working boosts both its yield and tensile strength, which is crucial for applications demanding high load capacity. Products crafted from 301 steel can endure 33% more stress compared to those made from AISI 304, thus allowing significant reduction in material use and consequently, lighter final products.

However, despite its enhanced strength due to a higher carbon content (up to 0.15% in 301 compared to 0.08% in 304), 301 stainless steel has a slightly reduced chromium range (16% to 18%) compared to 304’s 18% to 20%. This adjustment results in 301 being less corrosion-resistant than its 304 counterpart. Additionally, its vulnerability to carbide precipitation during welding is a critical consideration when selecting stainless steel grades for specific applications. Thus, while AISI 301 stainless steel offers remarkable strength and efficiency in material usage, its selection should carefully account for the environmental conditions and corrosion risks it will face.

What Is 301 Stainless Steel

301 Stainless Steel Features

AISI 301 stainless steel exhibits moderate corrosion resistance and is not recommended for use in environments with severe corrosive elements such as salts, alkalis, acids, and reducing agents. It maintains its oxidation and corrosion resistance up to 843°C and is optimal for continuous operation below 871°C.

Due to its impressive strength, 301 steel is highly effective against wear and stress, making it ideal for components like fasteners, springs, and structural elements. It is primarily available in various forms such as coils and strips, with different hardness levels from annealed up to super full hard, conforming to ASTM A666 standards.

With a density of 8.00g/cm^3 at 20°C, AISI 301 stainless steel combines durability with lightweight properties, suitable for a diverse range of applications where strength and minimal weight are critical.

How To Pack 301 Stainless Steel Sheet & Coil

In GHT, all of our stainless steel coils are packaged as per international standard to prevent any possible damage or loss. By default, for quantity less than 1 whole compete coil (our MOQ is 5 tons), we will use woven plastic bag to cover SS coils and then fix them upon wooden pallet for further protection. We can also package the SS coils as per your special requirement, though this can incur extra cost.

In GHT, all of our stainless steel sheets are packaged as per international standard to prevent any possible damage or loss. By default, we will use brown paper to cover SS sheets and then bundle them together onto wooden pallets. At times, upon some customers’ requests, we will also apply reinforced package with extra metal straps fixed on the four corners, though this can incur extra cost. For enhanced customer experience, we also accept customized package as per your requests.

For trial orders, expect swift delivery within a week. Regular orders are processed within 7 to 30 days.

We ensure the highest quality of our 301 stainless steel through meticulous inspections at every stage of manufacturing, cutting, and packaging. A mill test certificate for 301 stainless steel is provided with each order.

Samples of 301 stainless steel are available to assess quality. Samples are free; you only cover the shipping costs.

301 stainless steel is primarily non-magnetic in its annealed state but may become magnetic when cold-worked. The induced magnetism is relatively weak compared to ferromagnetic materials. It retains its excellent corrosion resistance and other properties even when magnetic.

When selecting a supplier for SS301, research their reputation, compare quotes, assess credibility through certifications and customer feedback, and verify their quality assurance measures. Negotiate terms that meet your needs and ensure all financial agreements and shipping arrangements are clear and documented. Upon receiving, inspect the coils for quality and accuracy.
