305 Stainless Steel is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel with a low rate of work hardening. This low rate of work hardening makes it suitable for many deep drawing applications. In order to minimize earring during drawing, the directionality introduced during cold rolling must be kept to a minimum amount. Deep drawing quality should be noted when ordering this alloy. Ordering annealed or dead soft does not guarantee deep drawing quality. Type 305 is non magnetic and becomes magnetic ( at a slow rate) with increasing cold work.
