Ferritic SS 410
Like its predecessor, grade 410 also has body centred cubic (bcc) grain structure and alpha iron in its composition, which gives it its commendable magnetic properties. The grade is ferromagnetic and remains magnetic at all conditions. Grade 410 is general purpose alloy with 12% chromium content and appropriate corrosion resistant properties and can be suitably heat treated for desired mechanical properties. The properties can be enhanced by a series of processes such as hardening, tempering and polishing.
The alloy is used at slightly corrosive atmospheres, where localized rust is acceptable. It is less resistant to corrosion compared to the grades in austenitic alloys and will be required a final heat treatment after the processes, to be used in applications.
