For Superior Machinability

Prodec 

The Prodec range comprises stainless steel grades that are optimized for consistently superior machinability, enabling faster machining speed, longer tool life, and enhanced quality.

Extensive technical knowledge and our end-to-end production chain enables us to optimize the material's machinability properties through all steps of the process.

Unlike typical grades optimized for machinability, Prodec products have similar corrosion resistance to conventionally produced stainless steel grades.

  • 316/4404 (1.4404)
