301 Stainless Steel Sheet

301 Stainless Steel Sheet Supplier in China

301 stainless steel sheets are high-strength austenitic stainless steel with 7% nickel and 17% chromium. They have excellent performance in low-temperature applications where tensile strength is required.

Variety of Applications

Due to the excellent corrosion resistance and high strength of 301 SS sheets, they are used for:

  • aircraft structural parts
  • cooking utensils & tableware
  • trailer bodies
  • architectural door frames, roof drainage, etc.
  • automotive trim & wheel covers
  • train cars
  • appliances
  • roof drainage products
  • conveyor belts and parts
  • various industrial applications

Advantages of 301 SS Sheet

301 stainless steel sheets have many advantages such as high strength, high hardness, and excellent corrosion resistance. They can also resist repetitive wear and stress. Moreover, they have exceeded the food service equipment standards due to their corrosion resistance.

Furthermore, the 301 stainless steel sheets have high ductility and are machinable. Due to that, they are suitable for different types of welding. Aside from that, they can be drawn and formed easily.

Variety of Industries

301 stainless steel sheets are widely used in various industries such as:

Standard Inventory Specifications

  • ASME SA 666
  • ASME SA 240
  • ASTM A 666
  • ASTM A 240
  • AMS 5901
  • UNS S30100

Performance in Various Processes


Stainless steel sheets in 301 grades can’t be hardened by thermal treatment.

For solution treatment or annealing, they can be heated in temperatures 1010 up to 1120°C and quickly cool.

For intermediate annealing, choose the low side of the range.


301 stainless steel sheets will harden at a high rate and create a high strength as a result roll forming and cold rolling. When they are cold rolled, they will exhibit high magnetic properties, and provide good ductility and strength.

Due to their remaining ductility, severe cold deformation might still happen.


301 stainless steel sheets are suitable for welding.

Resistance of the 301 Stainless Steel Sheet

Corrosion Resistance
Corrosion Resistance

301 stainless steel sheets have similar corrosion resistance to 304 SS sheets. They have excellent resistance in applications that include exposure to moderately corrosive environments outside at room temperature. 301 SS sheets can maintain their corrosion resistance in:

  • outdoor environments
  • industrial environments
  • marine environments
  • mild chemical environments
Heat Resistance
Heat Resistance

301 stainless steel sheets have good resistance to high temperatures. They can withstand continuous heat exposure up to 1600°F or 871°C without scaling noticeably. For intermittent exposure, their maximum exposure temperature is approximately 1450°F or 788°C.

At temperatures above 871°C or 1600°F, they have an oxidation weight gain of about 10mg/cm 2 in 1,000 hours. 301 stainless steel sheets can also maintain their resistance to corrosion at temperatures of about 1550° F.
