Martensitic stainless steels are characterized by high strength and hardness in the heat treated condition. We offer a range of martensitic stainless alloys which contain 11 – 17% chromium with 0.15 – 0.63% carbon. Martensitic grades are magnetic in both the annealed and hardened (heat treated) condition. Our martensitic stainless steels are supplied in the as-annealed condition, ready for blanking, bending and forming followed by heat treatment to obtain customer specific properties. We produce eight martensitic grades tailored for a variety of property requirements and applications.
Applications for the martensitic stainless steels include cutlery, cookwear, surgical and dental instruments, springs, scissors, industrial blades, vehicle stampings, screwdrivers, pliers, and staple guns.
