446 stainless steel rod

446 stainless steel rod is a high chromium ferritic stainless steel alloy. It is heat resistant and resists oxidation, sulfidation and other types of hot corrosion. This alloy is not hardenable, but it has mechanically solid qualities and excellent corrosion resistance at very high temperatures.

This grade is less elastic due to the generally higher chromium content. The impact transition temperature of 446 stainless steel rod is a bit high. Low forming rates, edge preparation and preheating to 250-400°F are all conducive to good bending and forming. When annealing is required, it should be done at 1550-1650°F, followed by rapid cooling.

446 Stainless Steel Rod: A Popular Choice


446 steel is popular for its strength, durability and corrosion resistance. This steel is also used to make tools, knives and other products.


The popularity of 446 Stainless Steel Rod is due to its superior properties compared to other types of stainless steel currently on the market. Strength, durability and corrosion resistance make this steel ideal for any application that needs to be strong enough to withstand high levels of wear without being prone to rust or corrosion.

446 Stainless Steel Rod Stock is used to strengthen concrete structures like bridges, dams and skyscrapers. They are also widely used as structural supports for scaffolding in construction works.

Moreover, 446 Stainless Steel Rod is a type of steel used in the manufacture of various products. It has many applications and can be found in various industries including aerospace, automotive, maritime, renewable energy and construction. Due to its low coefficient of friction, 446 stainless steel rod is also well suited for use as aerospace fasteners.
