High Hardness 302 Stainless Steel By Yaang™ Pipe Industry

by yane Yang Sales Manager

Yaang™ Pipe Industry is a well-established company that specializes in nickel alloy and stainless steel products. The company offers high quality 302 stainless steel, which exhibits excellent hardness and are widely used in Shipbuilding, Nuclear power, Marine engineering, Petroleum, Chemical, Mining, Sewage treatment, Natural gas and Pressure vessels and other industries. Table 1 shows the typical chemistry of different elements. The chemistry is for reference only, and must not be employed for specification purposes. Table 2 gives the physical properties of the 302 alloy, and Table 3 the mechanical properties.

Thermal Treatment

Cold worked 302 alloy in wire form will acquire tensile strength when they are stress relieved from 350°C to 427°C for a period of 4 to 6 h. Here, a reducing atmosphere is usually used, but inert gas can also be employed. The 302 alloy can be fully annealed at 1010-1121°C for a short period of time. However, the corrosion resistance of the alloy is significantly reduced due to carbide precipitation that occurs between 427°C and 899°C. Nonetheless, a test method has been described by the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) which ensures that the alloy is not damaged.

Surface Condition

Since stainless steels are drawn to fine diameters, they tend to develop a highly polished appearance. When single crystal natural diamond (SCND) dies are utilized to process alloys, the surface roughness can be below 5 RMS. Alloys with more than 0.040” diameters are finished by means of polycrystalline dies and tend to have a rougher surface than those processed with natural diamond dies. Similarly, alloys with more than 0.100" diameters will exhibit an even rougher surface as they are drawn with carbide dies.


302 alloy is like 304 alloy, apart from the 0.12% carbon maximum. The maximum percentage of carbon in 304 alloy is 0.08%. In principle, all 304 alloys fulfill the requirements of 302 alloy, but not all 302 alloys meet 304 alloy chemistry. This means, despite the same amount of cold work, 302 is comparatively harder than 304. The end products of 302 alloys include Super Duplex Stainless Steel FlangesStainless Steel FlangesStainless Steel Pipe Fittings, Stainless Steel Pipe.
