Stainless Steel Grade 302 is a slightly higher carbon version than grade 304. It is widely found in strip and wire forms. It is a standard specification for chromium and chromium-nickel stainless steel flanges, pipe, and bar used for pressure vessels and for general applications.
The following datasheet provides an overview of grade 302 stainless steel.
The chemical composition of grade 302 stainless steel (UNS S30200) is outlined in the following table.

Grade 302 Stainless Steel requires slow speeds, and high feeds will aid in overcoming this alloy’s tendency to work harden. It is recommended that chip breakers are used on all tooling due to the occurrence of gummy chips. While welding Stainless Steel grade 302, it is recommended that resistance or shielded fusion methods are used. The filler metals to be used are AWS E/ER308 or 312. Post weld annealing is performed when the chromium carbide needs to be dissolved so as to provide maximum resistance to inter-granular attack. Forging is ideally performed at these temperatures – 1149-1260°C (2100-2300°F). It is advisable not to forge below 927°C (1700°F). Forgings should be fully annealed after all operations so as to maintain full corrosion resistance.
Hot working requires uniform heating to 1149°C (2100°F) while cold working helps to increase the hardness of this material. Stainless Steel Grade 302 is quite ductile and can be readily drawn, spun and upset. Cold working causes this alloy to gain magnetic properties, and hence post-fabrication annealing is required to recover maximum corrosion resistance and a non-magnetic condition. Annealing is performed between 1010 and 1121°C (1850 and 2050°F) with fast cooling so as to avoid precipitation of chromium carbides.
Grade 302 stainless steel is widely used in the stamping, spinning and wire forming industry.
This alloy is also used in:
- Chemical processing, transport and storage
- Oil and gas exploration and offshore rigs
- Oil and gas refining
- Marine environments
- Pollution control equipment
- Pulp & paper manufacturing
- Chemical process plant
