Martensitic Stainless Steels
Martensitic Stainless Steels are Iron-Carbon-Chrome alloys. It has the carbon content is sufficient to change the structure during the heat treatment, providing greater mechanical resistance to the steel.
AISI 410 – Low carbon are easily worked cold in the annealed state. They are used in the manufacture of turbines and compressors.
AISI 420 – They are used in the cutlery industry for their high hardness and reasonable toughness after heat treatment, surgical instruments and manufacture of pump shafts.
AISI 440C – They have high hardness and wear resistant. They are therefore used in surgical and dental instruments, cutlery and pump components.
