Alloy Steel 3310

Alloy steel 3310 is an iron-carbon alloy composed of nickel-chromium and carbon. The nickel adds toughness and corrosion resitance and the chromium increases hardenability and also adds corrosion resistance. The first digit, 3, defines nickel-chromium as the primary element. The second digit, 3, defines the approximate percentage of the primary element (3% nickel-chromium), and the last two digits, 10, define the percentage of carbon in hundredths of a percent (0.10% carbon).
