While you have a few minutes to spare, go over some of the features of your industrial use stainless steel. Industrial use, on the other hand, would need to be broken down and categorized quite considerably. Now while you could spend time with this exercise in your own time, you need not go that far. All you need do is consider your own industry. If you are, for example, in the market of designing and/or manufacturing specific medical use instruments, you would be looking in the direction of medical grade stainless steel.
Further than that, and by way of example, take a quick look at this stock. This stainless steel bar stock is supplied to the standard industry length of twelve feet. Tubing alternatives can be provided as well. Customized stainless steel, in this case, is now a registered trademark. It has high tensile strength and contains an age-hardening stainless alloy. The intention is to provide commercial and industrial clients with an improved upon notch tensile strength, fracture toughness, and what has been termed as ‘fabricability’.
There is good resistance to stressed corrosion in this material. Other attributes to look forward to in this stainless steel material run as follows. General corrosion resistance is standard. Stress corrosion resistance has also been provided.
It has excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking in the H 1000 condition. Both standard and notched tensile strength of this material remains a lot stronger than other alternatives. Apart from this stainless steel variation being suitable for the manufacture of medical instruments, it is also perfectly poised for small turbine engine shafts, and the manufacture of sports equipment, as well as handheld firearms.
Another stainless steel material contains good fabricating characteristics, but requires a single step and low temperature treatment in order to be age-hardened.
