Benefits And Characteristics Of 400 Stainless Steel Pipes And Exotic Alloy Tubing.

by William Castle Business And Sales

The 400 Stainless Steel Pipe is susceptible to rust and corrosion under some conditions. Heat-treating will harden the 400 series. Also, the steel pipe has higher carbon content, giving it a martensitic crystalline structure. This provides increased strength and high wear resistance.

Some of the standard applications of the 400 series include ferritic and martensitic steels:

1. Ferritic steels are non-hardening steels, ideal for conditions in elevated temperatures. Their applications include complete automotive systems, petrochemicals, heat exchanges, furnaces, appliances and food equipment. 

2. Martensitic steels are hardened, ideal for a wide variety of common uses. Martensitic stainless steel is used in sports knives, multi-purpose tools and cutlery.


Benefits and characteristics of 400 stainless steel:


They are known for –


1. Great corrosion resistance

2. Resistance to scaling at elevated temperatures

3. Inherent strength more than carbon steels

4. Provide a benefit in many applications where thinner materials and reduced weight are required

5. Always magnetic

6. Non-hardenable by heat treating


All about exotic alloy 400 tubing


Exotic materials are high-performance alloys of stainless steel. They have increased performance properties, including good strength, durability and resistance to oxidation, corrosion and deforming at high temperatures or under extreme pressure. 

Because of these note-worthy properties, super alloys make the best materials for demanding working conditions. They are encountered across various industry sectors, including the automotive, marine and aerospace sectors.


Benefits of using exotic alloy 400


It is a robust and lightweight material with good ductility and toughness. The Exotic Alloy 400 Tubing contains high nickel content making it corrosion-resistant. It also has excellent resistance to friction and wear.


The alloy 400 has outstanding resistance to alkaline and neutral salt solutions. It has been the standard metal for salt plants for many years. The alloy is one of the few metallic materials used in contact with fluorine, hydrofluoric acid, hydrogen or their derivatives.


Experts manufacture exotic metals with highly specialized and controlled processes.
