1/8-Hard 302 Stainless Steel

1/8-hard AISI 302 is AISI 302 stainless steel in the 1/8-hard temper. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare 1/8-hard AISI 302 to: wrought austenitic stainless steels (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
