How to Identify that your 440C round bar supplier is Genuine or Not?
It is very crucial to source authentic ASTM A276 type 440C square bar to ensure proper use of the material in specific industries. The best way to identify whether the material is genuine is to source it from the listed suppliers from the pipingmaterial.ae website.
Since the website only lists genuine suppliers in the Middle East, you can ensure the authenticity and quality assurance of the 440C stainless steel. Also, it is essential to look into the test certificates, like Tensile test, hardness test, metallography, radiography, ultrasonic testing, Charpy impact testing, etc.

Euivalent, hardness and magnetic properties of 440C stainless steel rod
The Rockwell Hardness for 440C stainless steel rod is 58. Since it is a Martensitic Stainless Steel with high carbon content, it is a magnetic material and strongly attracts magnetic fields. It also shows high strength and hardness. The Charpy Impact Test shows the absorption of 19 joules of energy, which indicates greater strength.

Why Charpy Impact Test for AISI 440C hex bar?
The Charpy Impact Testing is crucial for ASTM A276 gr 440C hex bar to know the strength of the material at severe stress and strain conditions. In this test, a huge pendulum strikes the material. The gauge on the pendulum will indicate the amount of energy absorption by the material in Joules.
The more energy absorbed, the lesser the strength of the material. Most stainless steel grades show high energy absorption. However, the 440C stainless steel absorbs only 20 Joules of energy; hence has more strength.

3 common uses of 440C stainless steel polished round bar
The ASTM A479 type 440C polished bar has high carbon content. Hence, they have improved strength, increased wear resistance, and hardness. The following are the uses of 440C polished round bar:
- Useful in making Knife Blades.
- Widely applicable in designing structural components.
- Useful in making ornaments in the jewelry industry.

What are ASTM A276 SS 440C cold rolled round bars?
The 440C stainless steel rounds undergo cold-finishing to form the cold-rolled 440C round bars. The ASTM A276 type 440 C is the material specification of the cold rolled round bars. They have high carbon content and belong to the Martensitic Stainless Steel category. Their Brinell Hardness is 285. They are applicable in industries, like jewelry, food processing, chemical, oil, and gas, etc.
