300 Series Stainless Steel Material Fabrication

We understand that the right material makes all the difference. That’s why we offer a wide selection of 300 series stainless steel products.

Our team of experienced fabricators use cutting-edge technology and top-of-the-line equipment to fabricate steel to your exact specifications. CNC programmed laser cutting and press brake machines allow for the creation of intricate shapes and precisely cut dimensions, while our robotic welding techniques maintain the integrity of our 300 series stainless steel products.

What is 300 Series Stainless Steel?

300 series stainless steel is a group of austenitic steels known for its exceptional qualities. This versatile material excels in rust and corrosion resistance, making it a durable choice for many applications. There are a variety of grades within the 300 series; 302, 304, and 316 are the most common. Each offers varying levels of properties depending on its specific chromium and nickel content.

Benefits of 300 Series Stainless Steel

  • Corrosion Resistance: Does not easily rust or corrode, making it ideal for environments with exposure to moisture, chemicals, and salt.
  • Formability: Easily bends, shapes, and welds, allowing for intricate designs.
  • Strength and Durability: Offers good mechanical properties, resisting wear and tear.
  • Aesthetics: Provides a bright, clean finish that enhances appearance.
  • Low Maintenance: Requires minimal upkeep compared to other materials.


300 Series Stainless Steel Alloy Applications

300 series stainless steel is a multi-talented material. Its corrosion resistance and ability to be formed into complex shapes make it a favorite for applications across industries:


  • Cladding
  • Roofing
  • Gutters
  • Trims
  • Architectural panels

Material Handling

  • Tanks
  • Vessels
  • Conveyor belts
  • Storage Containers


  • Sinks

300 Series Grades at Alliance Fabrication & Manufacturing

We offer a variety of 300 series grades to meet your specific needs:

301: 301 Stainless Steel is a type of austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel that can be used in annealed and cold working conditions. It provides excellent stretch formability and the highest strength in cold working conditions.

302: 302 Stainless Steel is a high-carbon alloy known for its exceptional toughness, outstanding corrosion resistance, and ease of machining. It is primarily used in the food and beverage industry and pressure vessels.

304L: 304L (low carbon) is austenitic steel, the most versatile and widely used stainless-steel family member. It is commonly found in both home and commercial operations. Alloy 304L exhibits excellent corrosion resistance, high ease of fabrication, and outstanding formability. Austenitic stainless steels are also considered the easiest to weld high-alloy steels. 

316: 316 stainless steels, also known as A4 stainless, is renowned for its excellent corrosion resistance. It is chemically like 304, containing high levels of chromium and nickel, along with silicon, manganese, and carbon, with iron as the remainder. However, 316 includes a significant amount of molybdenum (2-3%), lacking in 304.

This molybdenum gives 316 superb saltwater and marine applications abilities, earning it the nickname "marine" grade. 316 stainless steel is widely used in chemical processes and high-salinity environments. For these reasons, it is also often utilized for chemical processing and storage equipment, medical and surgical devices, and refinery equipment, in addition to marine equipment.

316L316L stainless steel is a medical-grade metal that is hypoallergenic and suitable for people with sensitive skin. It is a marine-grade stainless steel with good strength and high corrosion resistance. It finds applications in marine settings, biomedical implants, body jewelry, and food processing equipment.
