Properties of 416 stainless steel

In this article, Mirach Metallurgy Co.,Limited shares Properties of 416 stainless steel. The detail info and features are about stainless steel grade 416.


Physical Properties
The material has a Rockwell Hardness of B82 and is considered of medium hardness. Stainless steel is dense with a rated weight of 7,800 kg per cubic meter. The Poisson's Ratio ranges between 0.27 and 0.30. The Poisson's Ratio measures the deformation of the material when it is stretched.

Thermal Properties
The thermal expansion of 416 stainless steel is rated at 9,9 with a thermal conductivity of 24.9. Thermal expansion is a ration of the amount that expands when exposed to heat. The thermal conductivity is a characterization of the materials ability to transfer heat. Both these properties are used in comparison to similar metals to determine which fits the user's needs most closely.
