1.4104 (X14CrMoS17) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!
1.4104 is a corrosion and acid resistant martensitic chromium steel with sulfur additive. Sulfur improves the machinability. However the corrosion resistance, in spite of high chromium content, is reduced by the sulfur. This is particularly noticeable in media which cause pitting or crevice corrosion.
Main applications for this material 1.4104 in the automotive industry, hydraulics and as parts for water and steam constructions.
Machinability: 7 (1 = very bad - 10 = good)
Corrosion class: 2 (0 = weak - 5 = good)
1.4104 round, forged, quenched and tempered, machined
1.4104 flat, forged, quenched and tempered
The processing with the saw is a mechanical processing of the material, which results in a significantly lower unintended deformation and increased hardness for the existing structure, such as the thermal cutting. Thus, the machined workpiece has a homogeneous structure even at the edge, which does not change in the continuation of the material.
This circumstance allows immediate finishing of the workpiece with milling or drilling . So it is not necessary to anneal the material or make a similar operation beforehand.
