303 Stainless Steel is a free machining austenitic stainless steel. With the addition of sulfur, this non-magnetic stainless steel allows for smooth, high speed machining. 303 has good corrosion resistance and is used for applications that must have a good deal of machining.

303 stainless steel comes in the following shapes: round bar, flat bar, hex bar, sheet, pipe, and coil. For more information about 300 series stainless steels check out this video on Austenitic Stainless Steel.
