303 is one of the most popular of all the free machining stainless steels. It offers good strength, corrosion resistance and great machinability. It will resist scaling at temperatures up to 871oC.
Used in an incredibly wide variety of parts both in screw and general machining industries. Applications include hardware, fasteners, valve parts, nozzles and trim. For the food processing industry, dairies, fotographic industry, for paint,soap, paper and textile production.

Mechanical Properties At Elevated Temperatures
|0.2 % proof stress in N/mm2||176||155||136||125||121||119||118|
Hot forming temperature: 1150-850oC.
Excellent speeds and feeds are capable with this material. The addition of sulfur causes a very brittle chip. Many companies now offer premium machinability grades, such as CarTech with their Project 70 and 7000 series.
Resistant to a variety of organic and inorganic chemicals, fresh water and atmospheric corrosion.
Although not recommended, welding may be performed if low temperatures are employed. Recommended filler metal is AWS E/ER312. At high temperature, the sulfur in 303 tends to precipitate at the weld boundary resulting in weak and brittle joints.
Minor deformation is possible with this alloy, although it is not its strong point. Type 303 Se is superior in this aspect.
