Our Materials

Stainless steel - our common materials
1.4301 | 1.4404 | 1.4571 | 1.4062 | 1.4162 | 1.4462

Ti (titanium), N (niobium)improve weldability
C (carbon)increases hardness, tensile strength, brittleness, from 0.3% upwards steel is curable, reduces corrosion resisting qualities and weldability
Cr (chromium)most important component of stainless steels, increases corrosion resisting qualities and wear resistance
Ni (Nickel)increases toughness, from 8% corrosion resistance upwards, austenite creator
Cu (Kupfer)raises toughness
Mn (manganese)increases tensile strength, austenite creator
Mo (molybdenum)increases corrosion resisting qualities, worsens duplex steel toughness "lowers temperature stability" sigma phase
N (nitrogen)increases tensile strength and corrosion resisting qualities
Si (silicon)improves scaling resistance and at higher levels the corrosion resisting qualities, e.g. against highly concentrated nitric acid
P (phosphorus), S (sulfur)improves machining properties, worsens weldability and corrosion resisting qualities
