"Type 303 and Cracking"

Question:

"Does anybody know of an articles in industry standard literature or other source that discusses the tendency of type 303 toward cracking based on the presence of Manganese-sulfide inclusions in the structure. I know for a fact that type 303 has poor transverse ductility based on the presence of these inclusions, both during hot and cold forming. However, I need something in published literature to support this point."

Answer:

I am aware that manganese sulfides in 303SS increases the pitting tendency and that 303 is susceptible to chloride SCC, as are the other austenitic stainless steels; however, we have no literature references on hand to cite. If you are interested in a literature search on the subject, we could help with that.
