Some client will doubt why SUS304 open end blind rivet has magnetic.

Why are all stainless steel blind rivets magnetic?

Stainless steel type:

Austenitic type: 304, 321, 316, 310, etc.

Martensite or ferrite type: 430, 420, 410, etc.

Austenitic type is nonmagnetic or weakly magnetic, martensite or ferrite is magnetic. Most stainless steels used as decorative tubesheet are austenitic 304 materials, which are generally nonmagnetic or weak magnetic. However, magnetism may also occur due to chemical composition fluctuation or different processing states caused by smelting.
