303 Stainless Steel Properties at High Temps

  1. Jun 18, 2015 #1
    Does anyone have a source for 303 stainless steel mechanical properties (YS, UTS, modulus, poisson's) with variation to temperature, especially around 800C? I've been searching a lot of sites... Or would it be fine to assume 303 has "good resistance to scaling at up to 871C" from http://www.suppliersonline.com/propertypages/303.asp?

    Thanks for the quick reply. Lots of 304 data but nothing on 303. Though, 303 and 304 properties are fairly close, except for UTS.

    There is a 304L that is more resistant to scaling and 321 is also better at high temperatures.
