1.4034 Stainless Steel
All You Need to Know About Martensitic Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel X30CR13, 1.4034, AISI 420F, 1.2083, According to EN 10088-1
What is 1.4034 Stainless Steel Grade
The 1.4034-grade stainless steel is martensitic stainless steel which is highly hardenable. It also showcases good corrosion resistance under moderate corrosive environments. The 1.4034 steel grade is usually used in quenched and tempered conditions.
The 1.4034-grade stainless steel has the following properties:
- Good corrosion resistance
- Highly hardenable
- Resistant to some organic acids, salts, alcohols, and liquid fuels
Why use 1.4034 Stainless Steel
The 1.4034 stainless steel grade will be the perfect choice for you if you are looking for highly hardenable steel. Due to its high carbon content, it is even more hardenable than 1.4031.
The stainless steel grade also has good workability and is relatively inexpensive to produce.
