Alloy 410S (UNS S41008) is a low carbon, non–hardening modification of Alloy 410 (UNS S41000) the general purpose 12% chromium martensitic stainless steel. The low carbon and a small alloy addition minimize austenite formation at high temperatures which restricts the alloys ability to harden. 410S remains soft and ductile even when rapidly cooled from above the critical temperature. This non-hardening characteristic helps prevent cracking when the alloy is exposed to high temperatures or welded. 410S is completely ferritic in the annealed condition. It exhibits adequate corrosion resistance similar to 410 and good oxidation resistance.

3. Stainless Steel 410s Pipe Heat Treatment:
The alloy can not be hardened by heat treatment. It is annealed between 1600 – 1650°F (871 – 899°C), and then air cooled to relieve cold working stresses. 410S should not be exposed to temperatures above 2000°F (1093°C), due to embrittlement. If large grains are found after annealing mildly cold-worked material, the annealing temperature should be decreased to 1200 – 1350°F (649 – 732°C).
4. Stainless Steel 410s Pipe Welding:
410S is generally considered to be weldable by the common fusion and resistance techniques. Special attention should be given to avoid brittle weld fractures during fabrication; this includes minimizing discontinuities, maintaining low weld heat input, and occasionally warming the part somewhat before forming. 410S is generally considered to have slightly poorer weldability than the most common ferritic stainless steel grade 409. A major difference can be attributed to the addition of alloy, to control hardening which results in the need for higher heat input during welding.
The packaging of our products (eg. weathered corrugated steel, weathering corrugated steel,corten steel columnl,hot rolled stainless steel plate) ensures that they will not be damaged during transport. For export purposes, the usual export packaging is done in wooden crates or crates. All hr sheet metal, plates and coils are marked with a logo (company mark), grade, size and batch number. On request, we can customise the marking on the product,such as spcc cold rolled steel.
