302 grade stainless steel plates offer incredible strength and resilience due in large part to their chemical composition. This unique alloy comprises iron, nickel, chromium, and carbon, among other elements. The iron content gives AISI 302 stainless steel 302 Plates excellent corrosion resistance and strength; at least 18 percent is present in the alloy. Chromium also increases corrosion resistance and adds hardness, with between 16 and 18 percent usually seen in this alloy. Nickel also helps to add robustness to the material but is primarily responsible for its formability as it softens at temperatures around 600 degrees Celsius. Carbon surfaces in amounts under 0.08% and is a hardener while reducing production costs.
ASTM A313 302 stainless steel plates are a popular choice for many mechanical construction tasks due to their unique combination of rust resistance and strength. Not only do they successfully resist corrosion in many environments, but they also provide superior mechanical properties when compared to other material types. When used for structural components and panels, stainless steel 302 plates lend an additional attractive element since their subtle luster gives the surface a slight shine that can be further polished with the proper techniques. As such, these plates are highly desirable for decorative and functional purposes in all applications, including automotive and agricultural industries.
