Grade 303 represents the optimum in machinability among the austenitic stainless steels. It is primarily used when production involves extensive machining in automatic screw machines. Machinability Rating (compared to B1212) is approximately 78%.
303 is also available as a "Ugima" Improved Machinability grade, with machinability even higher than that of the standard 303.
The sulphur addition which is responsible for the improved machining and galling characteristics of Grade 303 lowers its corrosion resistance to below that of Grade 304. As for other austenitic grades the structure gives 303 excellent toughness, although the sulphur in 303 reduces its toughness slightly.
Grade 303Se (UNS S30323) has a selenium rather than sulphur addition, improving the hot and cold forming characteristics over those of 303 and providing a smoother machined surface finish. The machinability rate is also slightly reduced. Grade 303Se is not readily available in Australia.
Composition ranges for 303 grade stainless steel
Grade specifications for 303 grade stainless steel
Typical applications include:
• Nuts and Bolts
• Aircraft Fittings
• Electrical Switchgear Components
• In general any component that is heavily machined and where the corrosion resistance and fabrication properties of 303 are viable.
