Type 309 (UNS S30900) is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel widely used for elevated-temperature services. It has a good combination of oxidation resistance and corrosion-resisting properties. The alloy is essentially nonmagnetic when annealed and become slightly magnetic when cold worked. It is intended primarily for high-temperature applications at 816 deg C (1500 deg F) or higher where resistance to oxidation and/or corrosion is required. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and tensile properties as well as creep. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, and joining. Filing Code: SS-896. Producer or source: J & L Specialty Steel Inc.
