310 PLATE AND PROCESSED FLAT BAR
Penn Stainless inventory now includes 310 and 310S Plate and Processed Flat Bar (Alloy 310 UNS S31000 / Alloy 310S UNS S31008), ideally suited for high-temperature applications such as heat treatment and chemical processing equipment.
Alloy 310 is an austenitic stainless steel that combines excellent high temperature properties with good ductility and weldability. It is typically used for elevated temperature applications as its high chromium and nickel content provide solid corrosion resistance, excellent resistance to oxidation, and superior strength in temperatures up to 2100°F. Due to its high chromium and nickel content, it is superior to 304 or 309 stainless in most environments.
The higher alloyed stainless steels generally have excellent strength at elevated temperatures along with outstanding resistance to creep deformation and environmental attack. Therefore, Alloy 310 is used widely in industries such as heat treatment and chemical processing. Some examples include:
