Grade 310

310 stainless steel is a high-alloy, heat-resistant grade that offers exceptional temperature and corrosion resistance

Chemical Properties

Mechanical Properties

  • Heat resistance: 310 stainless steel retains its strength and mechanical properties even at high temperatures, making it suitable for use in applications involving extreme heat, such as furnace components, heat exchangers, and kilns.

  • Oxidation resistance: The alloy's high chromium content enables it to form a protective oxide layer when exposed to elevated temperatures, which helps prevent further oxidation and maintains its integrity in challenging conditions.

  • Corrosion resistance: 310 stainless steel exhibits excellent resistance to corrosion, including attacks from oxidizing and reducing environments. It is often used in environments containing sulfur compounds, such as in chemical processing and petrochemical industries.

  • High-temperature strength: With a melting point of approximately 1400-1450°C (2550-2640°F), 310 stainless steel can withstand extreme temperatures and maintain its structural integrity under prolonged thermal exposure.

  • Weldability: 310 stainless steel can be readily welded using common techniques, allowing for ease of fabrication and assembly during manufacturing processes.

  • Applications: Due to its excellent heat and corrosion resistance, 310 stainless steel finds application in various industries, including power generation, aerospace, chemical processing, and heat treatment. It is commonly used in furnace parts, radiant tubes, boiler components, and exhaust systems.
