Amigo Impex is the leading and the most prominent importers, exporters, suppliers, and traders of the world-class quality of the STAINLESS STEEL 440C & 440B Flanges. We are indulged in the activity of import and export of these flanges in various classifications of shapes, sizes, grades, and specifications. We also provide them with custom sizes and shapes for our customers. The grade 440C is modern stainless steel which is notoriously famous for its capability of resisting corrosion in various media. It is well-equipped with numerous properties like superior strength and hardness, wears resistance, and higher machinability. It also shows a greater resistance against the corrosive atmospheric conditions such as the one which is found in mild water and acidic environments. The god-level resistance of this stainless steel if achieved in the passivated, hardened, and tempered conditions.
Industries can create smooth edges and even razor-sharp edges in this stainless steel because it has nice formability. Due to this property, it is highly used for making cutting and surgical instruments. They are also used for making other equipment such as valve seats, rolling element bearings, sharp knife blades, chisels, surgical instruments, valve parts, and ball bearings. However, the most common use for which it is employed is for the production of cutting tools like hair scissors, swords, and daggers. The grade 440B has a slightly lower content of carbon than the grade 440C of this stainless steel.
In spite of lower concentration, it possesses higher resistance to corrosion. It is also better in quality than the other grades and it is likely because of the decreased concentration of carbon that led to change in the properties for this grade. However, it is not recommended to be used in the applications that involve temperature higher than the tempering temperature. If done, then the steel will start losing its mechanical properties due to the effect of over-tempering on it. This indicates that the steel has not a good heat resistance. We conduct several tests on our products that we import and export just so we can ensure top-notch quality for the same.
