Alloy represents an excellent combination of corrosion resistance and fabricability. Past users of 302 stainless are generally now using 304 alloy since AOD technology has made lower carbon levels more easily attainable and economical. There are instances, such as in temper rolled products, when 302 alloy is preferred over 304 since the higher carbon permits meeting of yield and tensile strength requirements while maintaining a higher level of ductility (elongation) versus that of the lower carbon T304.  The true 302 melt is rare as most are using 304 to apply as 304 and 302 applications. All 304 can qualify as 302 since it is a subset of 302 however not all 302 can be 304.
