    What is 420 Stainless Steel Coil?

    SUS 304 Mirror 8K Stainless Steel Coil (3)

    420 stainless steel is a martensitic alloy with a higher carbon content compared to 410 and 416, enabling it to be hardened through heat treatment. It boasts at least 12% chromium, ensuring its corrosion resistance capabilities. Primarily distinguished by its ability to achieve high hardness levels of up to 50 RHC, it maintains good ductility when annealed. The optimal corrosion resistance of 420 is attained when it's both hardened and finely polished or ground.

    This steel variant demonstrates commendable resistance to various corrosive elements including atmospheric conditions, most foods, freshwater, mild acids and alkalies, steam, and many petrochemicals, provided it's in the hardened state. The elevated carbon content enhances its strength and hardness beyond that of 410 and 416 stainless steels. While 420 machines well in its annealed state, its machinability decreases significantly when hardened beyond 30 HRC. Fabrication techniques must consider its challenging weldability, often necessitating post-fabrication hardening and tempering. It is generally not advised for use at temperatures exceeding its tempering range due to a decrease in mechanical properties.

    Feature of 420 Stainless Steel Coil

    420 stainless steel is distinguished by its excellent strength, heightened hardness, and superior wear resistance, a direct result of its high carbon composition. While these characteristics make it exceptionally robust, they do lead to reduced ductility and challenging weldability. It offers moderate corrosion resistance, making it the material of choice for applications where mechanical strength is prioritized over resistance to corrosive elements.

    The material's physical properties are significantly influenced by any tempering treatments it has undergone, allowing customization to specific application requirements. For precise physical properties tailored to your needs, consultation with our materials specialist is recommended to ensure the suitability of 420 stainless steel for your specific applications.

    420 Stainless Steel Applications

    420 stainless steel is tailored for applications demanding excellent hardness and good corrosion resistance. It's particularly valued where these attributes are prioritized alongside high strength. The alloy's suitability for use is generally maximized in environments not exceeding 427°C, as higher temperatures can diminish its hardening capacity and corrosion resistance.

    This steel is commonly selected for its effectiveness in creating durable and sharp items such as:

    1. Cutlery and knife blades, where precision and edge retention are key.
    2. Surgical and dental instruments, requiring stringent hygiene standards and durability.
    3. Specialty scissors and shear blades, favored for their consistent cutting ability.
    4. Needle valves and hand tools, where strength and reliability are necessary.

    While 420 stainless steel provides adequate corrosion resistance in mild conditions, it's not the prime choice for severe environments, where materials like 304 or 316 stainless steel, with their higher chromium and nickel content, are generally preferred for their enhanced durability and corrosion resistance. Its mainstay applications are therefore those that leverage its strength and hardness, particularly in the manufacturing of various cutting implements and specialized tools.

    420 Stainless Steel Coil FAQ

    1. Can you provide custom 420 stainless steel?

    Absolutely, we tailor 420 stainless steel to your needs, ensuring your specifications for hardness(soft, 1/4 hard, 1/2 hard, full hard tempered), thickness, width, and physical properties are met.


    2. What's the delivery time?

    Quick delivery for trial orders within a week, while regular orders range from 7-30 days.


    3. How do you guarantee your 420 SS product quality?

    Our 420 products undergo rigorous inspections during manufacturing, cutting, and packaging to ensure the highest quality. And 420 MTC is also provided.


    4. Can I get some 420 ss samples?

    We can provide 420 ss samples for you to check the quality. Sample is free and you just pay the freight.


    5. What is the customizability of 420 stainless steel coil

    The adaptability of 420 stainless steel lies in its ability to be tailored through tempering treatments, which significantly affect its physical properties. This customization facilitates the alignment of the steel's characteristics with the specific requirements of your application. To achieve the exact physical properties that you require, engaging with our materials specialist is highly advisable. This ensures that the 420 stainless steel coil is perfectly suited to meet the demands of your particular applications, guaranteeing optimal performance and durability.


    6. Is 420 stainless steel magnetic?

    Indeed, 420 stainless steel exhibits magnetic properties. Being a martensitic type of stainless steel, it retains its magnetism in both the annealed and hardened states. This inherent characteristic is consistent regardless of the steel's processing or treatment, making it distinctively magnetic among stainless steel variants.


    7. What is the ss 420 price per kg?

    Usually the approximate price is more than 1,200 US dollars/ton. The actual price will fluctuate based on exchange rates, market conditions, etc. For details, please contact us for a quote.


    8. What is the difference between 304 vs 420 stainless steel?

    420 stainless steel has a higher carbon content (0.15% to 0.40%) than 304 stainless steel, which typically contains no more than 0.08% carbon. This difference gives 420 its notable hardness and strength. However, 304 contains more chromium (18% to 20%) compared to 420's 12% to 14%, providing enhanced corrosion resistance.

    420 excels in hardness and is preferred for its wear resistance, though it offers less corrosion resistance than 304. Meanwhile, 304 is renowned for its superior corrosion resistance and is better suited for environments prone to acidity or corrosion but lacks the hardness present in 420.

    The hardness of 420 makes it ideal for cutting tools, surgical instruments, and precision molds. On the other hand, 304 is widely used in food processing, chemical storage, and architectural applications due to its excellent corrosion resistance and adaptability to various environments.


    9. Is 420 stainless steel a good choice for making knives?

    Yes, 420 stainless steel is highly regarded for crafting knives, particularly favored by chefs, hunters, and divers. Its hardness provides a solid balance of toughness and resistance, suitable for a variety of cutting tasks. A key attribute of 420 stainless steel is its corrosion resistance, which is particularly valuable in damp or marine settings.

    It's important to note, however, that 420 stainless steel might not retain its sharpness as well as higher-end steels, but it is notably easy to sharpen. This characteristic, along with its cost-effectiveness, renders 420 stainless steel a practical option for budget-conscious consumers seeking dependable, lower-end knives.
