310s Alloy Description
Alloy 310S is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel that posses good oxidation resistance and strength at high temperatures in continuous service up to 2000ºF (provided reducing sulfur gasses are not present). It is also used for intermittent service at temperatures up to 1900°F because it resists rescaling and has a low coefficient of expansion. This factor reduces the tendency of the steel to warp in heat service. Alloy 310S is similar to alloy 310 except for lower carbon content to minimize carbide precipitation during welding.

Properties Tempered Alloy 310S can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties
required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details.
Standard Wire Finishes
Extra Clean: (XC) Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”
Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for
decorative applications Soap (round wire only):
Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available. ∗Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.
Cut to lengths
Cold Forming Alloy 310S has a good ductility and can be rolled formed, stamped and drawn readily.
Heat Treatment Alloy 310S can only be hardened by cold working.
