We sell 416 in a variety of forms: rod, bar, and plate.
416 is a martensitic free machining grade stainless steel. It is treated with hot working, a process that gives it elevated strength and hardness. It’s machinability of 85% makes it the highest of all stainless steel.
416 stainless steel is used in a wide variety of productions, from machine components to household items. A few of 416’s uses include:
- Valve components
- Screw machine parts
- Electrical motors
- Nuts and bolts
- Washing machine components
- Cutlery and kitchen utensils
416 stainless steel’s martensitic status makes it less resistant to corrosion than austenitic steels, but its ready machinability and variety of uses make it a widely used metal.
