Maxival AU188Z is an enhanced-machining version of AISI Type 303 stainless steel. The alloy has a specified inclusion picture to enhance machining by modifying both sulfide and oxide inclusions. It’s widely used in applications where the machinability is the most important factor of choice in terms of cost-saving in the production of pieces using multi-spindles and screw machines. This datasheet provides information on composition, hardness, and tensile properties. It also includes information on forming and machining. Filing Code: SS-982.
