Stainless Steel Wire 420

420 stainless steel wire or 1.4028 is often quenched and tempered to reach its desired properties, it is used in a wide range of
applications where moderate corrosion resistance is required. Martensitic stainless steels like 1.4028 combine high hardness and wear resistance with good toughness. They are resistant to corrosion under atmospheric environmental conditions. Applications can vary from household instruements, medical, industrial, and consumer applications. The high fatigue properties means that the wire is also used in the spring industry and can be found in EN10270-3
