​Outokumpu PRODEC® with enhanced machinability

If you are looking to substantially lower your total cost for machined parts in austenitic and duplex stainless steel, Outokumpu PRODEC® is the answer.

Outokumpu PRODEC® - maximizing productivity

Outokumpu PRODEC® is a special quality of austenitic and duplex stainless steel plate and bar, produced for optimal machinability.

It is designed to give lower cost machined parts with better final surface and dimensional tolerances. PRODEC plate is a premium quality of stainless steel with consistent properties throughout each plate - from plate to plate, and from heat to heat.

With PRODEC plate you are assured of corrosion resistance equal to conventionally produced stainless steel of the same grade.

PRODEC plate shows the same yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, hardness and toughness as conventionally produced plate.

Outokumpu PRODEC® -the best choice for machining applications

Compared with conventionally produced stainless steel, Outokumpu PRODEC® machinable stainless steel offers significant benefits to manufacturers, including:

  • Faster machining, allowing higher speeds and feeds with either carbide or high speed steel tooling
  • Longer tool life
  • Increased productivity
  • Better chip breaking
  • Better dimensional tolerances
  • Superior machined surface quality
  • Reduced scrap losses
  • Consistent performance, enabling on-schedule production
