Magnetic Properties of Stainless Steel and Other Metal Caskets


The question of magnetic properties has been an issue that has been quite misrepresented. Of the four structural types of stainless steel, only the Austenitic type is non-magnetic. This is due to the nickel content of the alloy.

It's seldom a factor in determining which alloy is used for a particular product or application. It's accurate to say that the magnetic properties of a stainless alloy have no effect on the durability of a burial casket under normal burial conditions.
