What is 3CR12 material?

What is 3CR12 material?

Type 1.4003 stainless steel is a utility ferritic stainless steel, often used in place of mild steel. It offers the benefits of more highly alloyed stainless steels such as strength, corrosion and abrasion resistance, durability and low maintenance.

What does 3CR12 mean?

3CR12 is a chromium containing corrosion resisting ferritic steel developed as an alternative material of construction where the mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and fabrication requirements of other materials such as mild steel, galvanised or aluminised steel, aluminium or pre-painted steels are unsuited.

Is 3CR12 stainless steel magnetic?

MAGNETIC EFFECTS IN ANNEALED STAINLESS STEELS In contrast to the austenitic alloys, ferritic stainless steels such as 409 or 3Cr12/5Cr12 and martensitic stainless steels such as 420, are strongly attracted to a magnet even in the annealed state.

Can 3CR12 stainless steel be hardened?

Grade 3CR12 stainless steels are annealed at temperatures ranging from 700 to 750°C, divided into 25 mm section, and each section is soaked for 1½ h. The material is then allowed to cool. Care should be taken to prevent hardening during heat treatment.

Can 3CR12 be hardened?

Machinability of grade 3CR12 stainless steels is around 60% of that of mild steel. They have a work-hardening rate lesser than that of austenitic steels, and, hence, they do not require special machining methods.

What is the machinability of grade 3CR12 stainless steel?

Machinability of grade 3CR12 stainless steels is around 60% of that of mild steel. They have a work-hardening rate lesser than that of austenitic steels, and, hence, they do not require special machining methods.

How is 3CR12 similar to grade 409?

3CR12 is similar to grade 409 and grade 410S (nominally 12% chromium) so it exhibits similar corrosion resistance properties, and has many advantages in terms of fabrication and mechanical properties.

Which is better stainless steel Grade 410 or 3CR12?

3CR12 is similar to grade 409 and grade 410S (nominally 12% chromium) so it exhibits similar corrosion resistance properties, and has many advantages in terms of fabrication and mechanical properties. With higher strength and corrosion/ abrasion resistance, 3CR12 stainless steel will provide durability and low maintenance to your projects.

Which is better austenitic steel or 3CR12?

Atmospheric corrosion testing has proven 3CR12 offers 250 times the life of unpainted mild steel in moderate marine environments. 3CR12 is far superior to austenitic alloys in that it strongly resists chloride stress corrosion cracking. It is less resistant than 304/304L to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments.
