Type 410 is a corrosion and heat resistant martensitic stainless steel containing approximately 12% chromium offering a wide range of mechanical properties through heat treatment. This grade offers a moderate level of corrosion resistance and the maximum resistance is obtained by hardening through heat treatment followed by polishing.
Type 410 is used for cutlery applications, kitchen utensils and hand tools and is magnetic in both the annealed and hardened conditions.
