440B Stainless Steel
440B stainless steel stockholders and suppliers. 440B is a high carbon high chromium type available in round and flat with delivery to the whole of the UK. The characteristics of 440B combine stainless steel properties with excellent hardness after heat treatment. 440B is very similar to the 440C grade but with a slightly lower carbon content, it attains a lower hardness than 440C but has slightly better corrosion properties. Its corrosion resistance properties are similar to 410 stainless steel, with optimum corrosion resistance of 440B achieved with a temper below 400°C. For 440B to achieve best corrosion resistance all surfaces must be free of scale, foreign particles, lubricants and coatings applied for drawing and heading. With its high carbon content 440B stainless steel annealed bar has similar machining characteristics to a high speed steel annealed grade.
