Allegheny Ludlum type 301 is the basic 18-8 chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steel with both chromium and nickel content lower than types 302 and 304. The steel is capable of attaining high tensile strength with good ductility by moderate or severe cold working. A typical application is conveyor belts in the food processing industry. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as heat treating. Filing Code: SS-723. Producer or source: Allegheny Ludlum Corporation.
