446 Stainless Steel Bar Stock

446 Stainless steel round bar stock

446 Stainless Steel, belonging to the 400 Series, is ferritic stainless steel with more than 23% of chromium content in it.

With its high chromium content, this allows this type of stainless steel to have excellent corrosion resistance and is hailed to be the best one of the ferritic stainless steel grades. Belonging to be in the ferritic grade, a 446 Stainless Steel, therefore, cannot be hardened by heat treatment and is known to be magnetic, have good ductility, and of course, its excellent corrosion resistance and oxidation. As such, industries that involve the use of furnaces, kilns, annealing boxes, and those others that are fully dependent on 446 Stainless Steel qualities partner up with 446 stainless steel bar stock suppliers capable of providing quality stocks and if possible, quality grinding and machining services too.

EXCELLENT CORROSION RESISTANCE IS WHAT 446 STAINLESS STEEL PROVIDE

Industries that deal with the manufacture of furnace parts, kiln linings, and annealing boxes seek the 446 Stainless Steel due to its outstanding corrosion resistance. As such, it is noted to have extreme resistance against oxidation in air and oil-ash corrosion as well as resistance against copper, lead, and tin. Moreover, this type of stainless steel grade is magnetic, can withstand higher temperatures without getting brittle easily, and even has good mechanical properties.

However, due to its high chromium content, 446 stainless steel round bar stock has poor ductility.
