ASTM A756 specification covers the requirements for chromium-carbon bearing quality stainless steel to be used in the manufacture of anti-friction bearings. Grade 440C is a type of Martensitic stainless steel containing 16-18% Cr. It provides strong rust resistance, high temperature resistance and dimensional stability, can be used as corrosion resistant high temperature bearing steel.
Standards: ASTM A 756
Size: 3.3mm - 260mm
Surface treatment: Polished, rolled
The Equivalent Standards:
0.95 - 1.2
Tubes annealed-cold-drawn bars
As agreed upon between the purchaser and the manufacturer
1) Annealing, slow cooling at 800 ~ 920℃;
2) Quenching,1010 ~ 1070℃ oil cooling;
3) Tempering,100 ~ 180℃ fast cooling.
The 440C can be used to manufacture bearing parts that work in corrosive and non-lubricated environments with strong oxidation. It can also be used to make surgical knives, scissors, nozzles, bearings, etc. 440C is also applicable to the production of seawater, river water, nitric acid, steam and Marine corrosive media bearing, such as ships, submersible pump components in the bearing, petroleum and chemical machinery, Marine instruments bearing.
