1.4305 (AISI 303 – SS2346)

By using 1.4305  (AISI 303 – SS2346) you get corrosion resistant free-machining stainless steel excellent for machining. It has good corrosion resistance and is often used for details within construction, building and processindustry.

The steel grade 1.4305  (also called AISI 303 and SS2346) is a free-machining austenitic stainless steel with excellent machinability. It is suitable for massproduction of details requireing good resistance to atmospheric corrosion and good resistance to many organic and inorganic chemicals. It shall not be used in marine environment or coastal environments. It is non-magnetic but may become slightly magnetic after cold working and welding.

Typical application areas for 1.4305:

  • Pump- and Valve details
  • Bolts
  • Fittings
  • Construction
  • Building

Excellent for machining
The steel grade 1.4305 contains sulphur which make it excellent for machining. The steel is not weldable due to the sulphur content and hot forming is difficult. It can be hardened by cold working.

We offer steel grade 1.4305 in the following profiles

Steel grade 1.4305 is a available as machined round bar, drawn round barground round bar and hexagon bar. It is available in dimensions 4 – 145 mm depending on profile and execution.
