305 Stainless Steel
ROLLED TO RESTRICTED THICKNESS TOLERANCES
BRIGHT ANNEALED - The bright cold rolled finish is retained by final annealing in a controlled atmosphere furnace.
FOR DEEP DRAWING - Type 305 Stainless Strip Steel possesses the same excellent corrosion resistance as Type 302, but has a much lower rate of work hardening. It is well suited for cold forming operations in which this low rate of work hardening is desirable. Its yield, tensile strength, and hardness increase at rates which are exceptionally low. However, its initially good elongation falls off rapidly.
Type 305 stainless steel is widely used for the production of parts by free spinning and cold heading operations, and it is particularly suitable for severe cold drawing, especially where the part can be completely formed in two draws. In many instances, the intermediate anneal can be eliminated when Type 305 is used. In drawing, the metal should be allowed to slip freely through the hold-down pads, thus holding stretching to a minimum. Used widely for electronic parts and other drawn applications.
