Primary Metals and Alloys stock stainless steel:


The alloys that Primary Metals and Alloys stock are referred to as 300 Series Austenitic. This series is non-magnetic, not heat treatable and has good formability. By adding molybdenum, the corrosion resistance is increased. It is used in food equipment, chemical equipment and architectural applications.
