Stainless Steel 440B Round Bar

ASTM A276 SS S44003 hex bars and rod suppliers in UAE

This round bar is a high-carbon martensitic stainless steel. It has excellent hardness, strength, and wear resistance properties. It also offers good corrosion resistance, especially in environments exposed to mild corrosives, such as salt water and acids. The material can be heat treated to higher strength levels, making it suitable for applications where wear and strength are essential considerations. Stainless Steel 440B Round Bar is widely used for knife blades, valves, fasteners, and pump shafts. Additionally, it is often machined into bars of various sizes which can be cut or shaped to meet customer needs.

This square bar is a strong and durable material used in many applications. It has excellent mechanical properties such as high strength, wear resistance, good formability, and corrosion resistance. This makes it an ideal material for parts that require both high strength and durability. Its high carbon content of 0.95 to 1.20% offers a yield strength of 800 MPa (1160 PSI), a tensile strength of 880 MPa (1275 PSI), and a hardness value of HRC 40 to 48. This gives the SS 440B Square Bar outstanding overall strength and performance for highly demanding applications.

What is SS 440B round bar used for?

This is a high-grade stainless steel mainly used in engineering applications where strength and corrosion resistance are of primary importance. In addition, this bar type has superior workability, making it suitable for various operations, including drilling, milling, threading, and grinding. Its resistance to wear and tear makes it a popular choice in industrial settings such as food processing plants, marine construction sites, and water treatment plants. For example, ASME SA276 SS 440B Round Bar can be used in petrochemical, medical, and automotive applications. Its extreme hardness also makes it ideal for molds, where it can handle high-stress levels without deformation.

How do you make 440B stainless steel round bar more durable?

Making this round bar more durable requires using the right treatments. First, the bar should be adequately annealed, which helps make it softer and easier to shape without becoming brittle. After this process, it is crucial to heat-treat the bar to increase its wear resistance and harden the surface of the steel. Another way to make SA 479 Gr 440B Rounds more durable is through surface hardening processes such as nitriding or flame-hardening. Finally, plating with a protective coating like zinc can also help protect against rust and corrosion, extending the round bar’s lifespan.

Is A479 gr 440B forged bar magnetic?

This forged bar is a high-carbon chromium steel with excellent hardness, strength, and wear resistance. While it may not be considered ‘magnetic,’ this grade of stainless steel does have a very slight magnetic attraction to a magnet when cold worked. Cold-working of the metal can create slightly higher levels of magnetic attraction due to the formation of martensite in the microstructure. Additionally, since Stainless Steel 440B Forged Bar contains iron, some minor magnetic fields will be generated by any movement of the metal.
