Stainless steel has a much lower conductivity than carbon steel: a thermal conductivity of about 15 watts per kelvin per meter, and an electrical conductivity (at room temperature) of about 1.4 million siemens per meter.
Stainless steel is a relatively good conductor of electricity, as are all metals. The body is also a good conductor, due to water. The skin is a relatively poor conductor of electricity because of dead skin cells. Any break in the skin, i.e. cut, greatly reduces its resistance.
Electrical conductivity is the measured amount of current generation created on a metal target’s surface. But which metals conduct electricity? ... Our stock includes: stainless steel, alloy steel, galvanized steel, tool steel, aluminum, brass, bronze and copper.
A list of the conductivity of metals sorted by resistivity from silver to graphite.
Electrical Conductivity of Materials. May, 15 2002. ... Steel: 3 to 15: Perhaps the most interesting fact revealed by this chart is how low most copper alloy materials rank in relative conductivity. One might easily assume that alloys such as the brasses and bronzes, because they are mainly copper, are nearly as conductive as copper. ...
Electrical conductivity is the reciprocal quantity of resistivity. Conductivity is a measure of how well a material conducts an electric current. Electric conductivity may be represented by the Greek letter σ (sigma), κ (kappa), or γ (gamma).

There are literally hundreds of stainless steel formulas 302, 312, 313, 315 etc, They all conduct electricity but fall quite a bit short when compared to the best conductors, copper, silver etc. Copper and silver are 1.7x10^-8 and 1.6x10^-8 ohm-me...
