GENERAL PROPERTIES
Type 410 is hardenable, straight-chromium stainless steel which combines superior wear resistance of high carbon alloys with the excellent corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Oil quenching this alloy from temperatures between 1800°F to 1950°F (982-1066°C) produces the highest strength and/or wear resistance as well as corrosion resistance. Type 410 alloy is used where strength, hardness, and/or wear resistance must be combined with corrosion resistance.

APPLICATIONS
A major use for Type 410 heat treatable stainless steel is in cutlery. Depending on the customer’s end-use requirements, cutlery alloys are usually selected with respect to heat treating response, mechanical properties and fabricating characteristics. When sufficient amounts of carbon are added to straight-chromium stainless steels, the alloy then has the capability to transform its microstructure through proper heat treatment (hardening) into one thatwill possess optimum strength, hardness, edge retention, and wear resistance. The presence of sufficient chromium will impart the necessary corrosion resistance and form chromium carbide particles that enhance the wear resistance of the given alloy. T

The higher the carbon content, the greater the amount of chromium carbide particles, and the greater the strength and hardness for heat treatable straight-chromium stainless steels.

Other applications for Type 410 heat treatable stainless steel include dental and surgical instruments, nozzles, valve parts, hardened steel balls and seats for oil well pumps, separating screens and strainers, springs, shears, and wear surfaces.

RESISTANCE TO CORROSION
Type 410 exhibits good corrosion resistance to atmospheric corrosion, potable water, and to mildly corrosive chemical environments because of the ability to form a tightly adherent oxide film which protects the surface from further attack. Exposure to chlorides in everyday type activities (e.g., food preparation, sport activities...) is generally satisfactory when proper cleaning is performed after exposure to use.
