416 Stainless Steel

416 Stainless Steel

416 Stainless Steel is a martensitic free machining grade of stainless that can be hardened by heat treatment to achieve elevated strength and hardness.  Due to its low cost and ready machinability, 416 stainless steel is readily used in its highly tempered state.  It exhibits better machining characteristics than austenitic grades, however, sacrifices corrosion resistance. Since stainless steel 416 is free of high sulfer content it is not suitable for marine or any chloride exposure situations.  We can supply our 416 stainless steel for any project big or small.

Best Stainless provides 416 stainless steel under the highest quality UNS S41600 and ASTM A582 standards. 416 SS can be utilized in a number of capacities and applications including, pump shafts, valve components, and automatic screw machine parts. Stainless steel 416 is composed of carbon, chromium, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, and sulfur.
