440c stainless steel

Type 440C Stainless Steel is commonly used in antifriction bearings, in valves and in several other applications where hardness and corrosion opposition are required. This material is more resistant to wear and abrasion than chromium steel. This is a high alloy, fine grain, through hardening, Martensitic metal that is stainless. Because of its high hardness and fine grain structure, it may be finished to a fine quality that is dimensional.HardnessThis material shall harden to 58 rockwell "C" (58 HRC) minimum. The hardness is measured on parallel ground flats or the reading taken at first glance that is spherical corrected for...
