Stainless steel 1.4005 416

Everything you need to know about stainless steel with maximum machinability: X12CRS13, 1.4005 416 , AISI 416, according to EN 10088-3

What is grade 1.4005 416 stainless steel?

Stainless steel grade 1.4005 416 has the highest machinability of all types of stainless steel. The machinability of grade 1.4005 416 stainless steel is improved by the addition of phosphorus and sulfur. The steel is essentially stainless steel 1.4006, to which sulfur has been added to increase its hardness.

Grade 1.4005 416 stainless steel has the following properties:

  1. High machinability
  2. High hardness
  3. Low corrosion resistance

Why use stainless steel EN 1.4005 416?

Grade 1.4005 416 stainless steel is used in unhardened, tempered, or highly tempered states due to its easy availability and low cost. This steel is used in particular as shaft material.

This type of steel can have good corrosion resistance with a smooth surface finish even when hardened.
