410 Stainless Steel
410 Stainless Steel offers both outstanding corrosion resistance and exceptional wear resistance. To obtain the best possible strength and wear resistance, oil quench type 410 Stainless Steel at a temperature between 1800° F and 1950° F. Due to the advantages of heat and corrosion resistance, type 410 is most often used in cutlery, valve components, gas and steam turbine buckets and blades, kitchen utensils, and screens. 410 Stainless Steel is weldable but it is recommended to preheat it first and to anneal it after welding. When hot working with stainless steel type 410, use temperatures between 2000° F and 2200° F. Alloy 410 Stainless Steel can also be cold formed utilizing most standard methods.
