​Prod​uct properties​

 Corrosion resistance

​​The corrosion resistances of Outokumpu Moda range ferritic stainless steels are superior to that of carbon steel because of their higher chromium content.

The best material performance is reached usually with the help of adequate design, correct post-weld treatment and regular cleaning during use (if applicable).

Outokumpu Moda range products can be readily cold formed by all standard methods. Their forming properties are similar to those of low-alloyed carbon steels. Their deep drawability is comparable to that of deep drawing quality carbon steels.


Outokumpu Moda range products are relatively easy to machine. Their machining characteristics are similar to those of low-alloyed carbon steels with tensile strength of 500 MPa. Consequently, the guidelines regarding the machining parameters and tools given for low-alloyed carbon steels can be used.


​Most Outokumpu Moda range ferritic stainless steels are readily weldable with conventional welding methods.​​
