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.
