Stainless Steel

Select material and material thickness:

Standard – stainless steel V2A (X5CrNi18-10 / 1.4301)

Wide range of uses: architecture, design, jewelry and art, household items, including those in contact with food, scientific instruments, including ultra-high vacuum and low-temperature applications. Can be used up to 600 °C. Resistant to almost all environmental influences and weak acids. Unresistant to chloride ions, therefore not suitable for use in salt water, swimming pools or similar environments. Easily electrically weldable, very easy to polish, very easy to form (deep drawing, folding). Less easy to machine, due to the tendency to work hardening and the toughness

V2A (X5CrNi18-10 / 1.4301) ground 240 grain

Ground on one side in the x direction, 240 grain, foil-coated; otherwise as previous entry.

V4A (X6CrNiMoTi17-12-2 / 1.4571)

The material is more resistant to corrosion than 1.4301. Use like V2A, but can also be used in salt water and swimming pools due to its better resistance to corrosion. Instrument making, vacuum technology. Easy to weld, polishable, less easy to machine using all processes.

X10CrNi18-8 (1.4310)

Slightly less corrosion-resistant than 1.4301 due to a lower nickel content, generally resistant to food and drinks. Suitable for spring production for operating temperatures up to over 200 °C. Very easy to cold form (deep drawing, bending), with work hardening and magnetizability through forming. Less easy to machine.
