Corrosion resistance of various stainless steels

304 is a versatile stainless steel that is widely used to make equipment and parts that require good overall performance (corrosion resistance and formability).

301 stainless steel shows a significant work hardening phenomenon during deformation and is used in various applications where higher strength is required.

302 stainless steel is essentially a variant of 304 stainless steel with a higher carbon content, which can be obtained by cold rolling.

302B is a kind of stainless steel with high silicon content. It has high resistance to high temperature oxidation.
