410 stainless steel is a magnetic 11.5% chromium all-purpose martensitic stainless steel providing favorable corrosion resistance and a broad scope of mechanical properties. The level of resistance can be enhanced by a process of heat treatment and is ideal for jobs requiring good corrosion resistance and high strength. Type 410 is a versatile grade due to its heat-treating abilities and its resistance to chemical atmospheric conditions.
When heat-treated, 410 stainless steel provides excellent corrosion resistance to mild chemicals, water, and atmospheric conditions, and other daily activity usage. Due to its resistance to corrosion, 410 stainless steel is commonly used in human interactive environments such as, cutlery, kitchen utensils, and dental equipment. For 410 stainless steels best corrosion resistance to synthetic settings, it is crucial that the surface of 410 be free of all heat and oxide build up from construction, annealing, or treatment.
Pre-heated to ~400°F to prevent cracks, then commonly heat-treated at ~2000°F. Thanks to a variety of heat treatments, 410 stainless steel offers a variety of characteristics. Our 410 stainless steel can come in many conditions including condition A, condition H, Condition 2, and Condition 3. One of the most common conditions for the oil patch is QDT per NACE. 410 stainless steel is magnetic in all conditions.
