Stainless Steel 302 - Alloy Composition

Stainless steel type 302 is part of a family of stainless steel alloys (301, 302, 303, 304, 316, 347). Type 302 Stainless Steel is an austenitic, non-magnetic, extremely tough and ductile stainless steel that is a slightly higher carbon version of type 304. 302 stainless steel is one of the more common chrome-nickel stainless and heat-resisting steels and is more corrosion resistant than 301 due to higher nickel content
