As a stainless steel vendor, we know the importance in offering our clients a variety of stainless steel options and grades when they are looking for materials for their latest application and technologies. We have a number of industries visit us for various reasons, but in the case of those looking for 420F stainless steel, we can often narrow it down to a few kinds of businesses or companies.
Food and beverage. Having knives and other cutlery that will get the job done is not what professionals in the restaurant business want, they want things that are done well. 420F’s hardness and durability keeps blades sharper longer, which means their blades are sharper, last longer, and keep their work running smoothly.
Medical. Having readily available surgical tools that can be sterilized, sharpened for surgery, and used constantly is important in this industry, and being able to create polished instruments is an essential part of a tools purpose for these professionals.
Dental. Just as medical or surgical instruments, dental instruments utilize stainless steel metal a similar way. Because it is so corrosion and rust resistant, this material preserves tools in the dental field that might otherwise degrade.
Pump shafts, gears, pistons and cams, hand tools. 420F material properties allow for ease in machinability ensuring high strength at room temps with a clean and uniform appearance that leads to less polish time when needed. Durability is the major advantage for use in these applications.
These are some of the most common industries who utilize 420F. Alliant Metals is one of two distributors in the country who stock 420F in round bar from 3 to 12 inches in diameter; so contact us when you are in need of this specific type.
