Features and use: a kind of mateiral with good corrosion and heat resistance, widely used in turbine blade and high stress components .


The difference between 403 stainless steel and 304 stainless steel:

2) Austenitic stainless steel is non-magnetic or weak magnetic;  martensite and ferrite are magnetic.
3) Corrosion resistance and toughness of 304 is better than 403; 403 is a kind of stainless steel can be hardened, after quenching, the hardness is higher.
4) 304 stainless steel containing about 8% of the nickel, however, 403 do not contain nickel.
