Project 70 and Project 7000 Type 203 stainless steels are alternative materials to AISI Type 303, resulfurized stainless steel having improved machinability. High manganese and copper are substituted for some nickel resulting in a stable austenitic structure having low magnetic permeability. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, and joining. Filing Code: SS-505. Producer or source: Carpenter.
