Type 310S (UNS S31008)

Description

Type 310S is a high temperature chromium nickel austenitic stainless steel with high creep strength that resists oxidation at temperatures up to 2000˚F in dry air. Type 310S forms a tenacious scale at high temperature and is resistant to spalling and performs better than Type 309 in thermal cycling applications. Type 310 has good sulfidation resistance and good resistance to carburization in moderately carburizing atmospheres. Type 310S is the low carbon version of Type 310 and is utilized for ease of fabrication due to its better formability and weldability. Type 310S is non-magnetic in the annealed and cold worked conditions and is as resistant to corrosion as Type 304/304L.
