Stainless Steel AISI 314

AISI 314 Stainless Steel Data Sheet

Data sheet
DIN EN 10095
Grade AISI 314 / EN 1.4841


AISI 314 / EN 1.4841 is an austenitic stainless steel which has good heat resistance and strength at high temperatures. The scaling resistance is increased by the silicon content of 1.5 - 2.00 % to about 1150°C (in air). This stainless steel grade is well suited for welding, forging and cold forming.
Typical areas of application are in apparatus engineering, furnace construction or the chemical industry.

Heat treatment and hot forming

Solution heat treatment (cooling by air or water): 1050-1150 °C

Hot forming (cooling by air): 1150-800 °C


The material AISI 314 / EN 1.4841 can be used for all common welding methods, but hot cracks may occur. A later heat treatment is not necessary. Note: In the welded condition the material does not show any resistance to intergranular corrosion.
