410 Stainless Steel Bar

Grade 410 belongs to the martensitic family of stainless steel alloys. Its high chromium content, which averages about 11.5 percent of its total composition, gives this stainless steel outstanding resistance to corrosion and excellent durability. Condition A, condition 2, and QDT variations of standard 410-grade stainless steel have been specially treated to boost their oxidation resistance and improve their mechanical properties.

Commonly deployed in the petrochemical industry thanks to their excellent corrosion resistance, 410-grade stainless steel alloys are also widely used in the manufacture of automotive parts, dental and medical instruments, and pipelines.

Performance Characteristics of Stainless Steel Grade 410 Cond A, Cond 2 and QDT

Grade 410 stainless steel products display the following universal performance characteristics:

  • Exceptional durability & excellent resistance to oxidation in environments containing high levels of exposure to air, water & mildly acidic substances
  • Good resistance to nitric, diluted acetic & concentrated sulfuric acids
  • Ideal suitability for oil field deployment, especially in applications involving sour gas hydrogen sulfide exposure


410 Stainless Steel Round Bar Applications:

  • Valve Components
  • Pump Shafts
  • Gas and Steam turbine blades
  • Cutlery
  • Cutlery
  • Fasteners
  • Bearings
  • Bushings

Because of their hardening capabilities, which increase tensile and yield strength and boost overall performance, grade 410 stainless steels have limited weldability with relatively narrow responsiveness to standard fusion techniques. However, weldability and formability characteristics vary depending on the exact heat treatment techniques used. 410 stainless steel bars must typically be heated prior to welding and galvanized after fusion to prevent any possibility of stress cracking.
