  • IntroductionKey PropertiesCompositionMechanical PropertiesPhysical PropertiesGrade Specification ComparisonPossible Alternative GradesCorrosion ResistanceHeat ResistanceHeat TreatmentFull Annealing - Grade 416 steel can be annealed at temperatures of 815 to 900°C for ½ h. This process is followed by cooling at 30°C for an hour and air-cooling. Sub-Critical Annealing - Grade 416 steel is heated to 650 to 760°C and air-cooled. Hardening – This process involves heating grade 416 steels to 925 to 1010°C, oil quenching and tempering to improve mechanical properties. Tempering should not be carried out at temperatures ranging from 400 to 580°C, owing to poor ductility of grade 416.416 Stainless Steel - Penn Stainless12 rows · Alloy 416 is a martensitic, free-machining, chromium steel alloy that is generally considered to Alloy 416 Specifications:UNS S41600 - Penn StainlessAlloy 416 is a martensitic, free-machining, chromium steel alloy that is generally considered to be the first free-machining stainless steel. It has the highest machinability of any stainless steel at about 85% of that of a free-machining carbon steel. Martensitic stainless steels were designed to be hardenable by Problems shop-hardening 416 SS, need wisdomApr 08, 2007 · The hardening temperature for 416 is 1800F. I cross-referenced that to an approximate color (a red-orange), held that with a MAPP-air torch and the part supported by Inconel wire and oil quenched. I was not too thrilled with the resulting hardness, so I decided to Speedy Metals Information for 416 Stainless Steel
