301 Stainless Steel is a modification of 304 stainless. When cold worked, it provides a high strength and ductility for a variety of applications. This material is available in a variety of tempers including 1/4 hard, 1/2 hard, and full hard depending on end use. Common applications for this material include auto body trim, utensils, aircraft parts, and architectural products.

|Type 301 exhibits corrosion resistance comparable to Types 302 and 304 in the mild service conditions. Resistance to atmospheric corrosion, food, juices and road de-icing salt is excellent. The best corrosion resistance is obtained in the annealed condition.|
|Type 301 is non-harden able by heat treatment. Annealing: Heat to 1900 – 2050°F (1038 – 1121°C), then water quench. Stress Relief Annealing: Heat to 500 – 900°F (260 – 482°C), then air cool.|
