Steels from Mansfield Works include semi-finished hot bands and cold rolled chrome, high chrome ferritics and martensitic stainless steels.
They offer a wide range of corrosion and oxidation resistance, strength and hardness, as well as fabricating and welding benefits. All come in a variety of widths and gauges, including:
Chrome ferritic grades that are used in applications that need to withstand extreme heat and corrosive conditions. Ferritic stainless steels include 409 and 439, economical stainless steel used for heat exchangers, furnace liners and automotive exhaust systems.
Chrome martensitic grades that contain higher levels of carbon than ferritics and are used in applications that require increased hardenability.
The specialty flat rolled steels produced at Mansfield Works meet the demands of an array of complex end-use applications; automotive, including fuel and safety systems; appliances; cutlery; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment; and processing equipment.
