SS Tool Wrap Specifics

It's time to buy another roll of stainless steel tool wrap for heat treating. For the past year and half, none-the-wiser to its temperature rating, I've been using 0.002" 304 SS wrap. I haven't experience any ill-effects after treating over a dozen (15) stainless blades, all in the 1080?C (1,976 ?F) range.

Is there any real reason to use 309? The difference in price is substantial enough for me to query this.

Regards,

Dan
