Stainless steel 1.4301/1.4307 cold-rolled

The versatile and widely used 1.4307 grade is the standard ‘18/8’ stainless steel. Available in a wider range of products, forms and finishes than any other grade, it has excellent forming and welding characteristics, and a balanced austenitic structure that enables severe deep drawing without intermediate annealing. Excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of atmospheric environments in variable corrosive media is a further benefit.
