304 Stainless is one of the most widely used grades of Stainless Steel. An Austenitic Steel, generally composed of Chromium, Nickel and Manganese, it is nonmagnetic and has excellent corrosion resistance, but is susceptible to stress- corrosion cracking.
Diversified Metals offers a strain-hardened variant 304 Cond. B hardened by cold working. Stainless 304 is non-heat treatable.
Used primarily in fastener applications, cold working elevates the tensile and yield values.
