Stainless Steel Plate

Alloy 410 Stainless Steel Cutlery

The everyday rigors placed on cutlery demand a material that exhibits excellent strength, lasting durability, and resistance to mildly corrosive environments. For this reason, 410 stainless steel has become a staple in the manufacturing of knives and flatware. It is also utilized in cutting applications in industrial food processing. The alloy’s chromium composition protects surfaces from the acidity of food and the corrosive properties of water, while the material’s high strength and hardness make it an ideal substance suitable for a variety of mechanical applications.

Alloy 410 Stainless Steel Properties

Alloy 410 is a 12% chromium martensitic stainless steel that, when heated, hardens to achieve optimum strength and edge retention. Because of these qualities, it is commonly used in the manufacturing of cutlery. When compared to austenitic grades of stainless steel, alloy 410 is less-corrosion resistant, but is proven to withstand the effects of atmospheric conditions, water, mild chemicals, and the acids found in food. The alloy also exhibits good heat and oxidation resistance. In its annealed state, 410 martensitic stainless steel is ductile and can be easily machined, making it a material with excellent fabrication characteristics.
