CA40 Stainless Steel Properties, Composition & Equivalent
CA40 ASTM A743 Grade（UNS）：J91153 Alloy Family: Martensitic Stainless Steel Equivalent: 420 stainless steel
What is CA40 Stainless Steel ?
CA40 stainless steel is 420 “cutting tool grade” martensitic steel, similar to Brinell high chromium steel, the earliest stainless steel.It has a certain wear resistance and corrosion resistance, high hardness.
This kind of alloy has a certain degree of wear resistance and corrosion resistance, high hardness, its price is lower in stainless steel, suitable for the working environment with common requirements for stainless steel.
It is suitable for all kinds of precision machinery, bearings, electrical, equipment, instruments, transportation tools, household appliances, etc. It is mainly used for manufacturing parts resistant to atmospheric, steam, water and oxidizing acid corrosion.

420 Stainless steel
420 equivalent to China’s 3Cr13 stainless steel pipe, with chromium content of 12-14%, minimum carbon content of 0.15%, and typical value of 0.31%. The UNs standard number of 420 stainless steel is S42000.
Characteristics and application of 420 stainless steel pipe: because the carbon content is about 0.31%, the hardness is higher than that of 2Cr13 (carbon content is about 0.20%) after quenching. It is used as cutting tool and nozzle. Valve seat, valve, etc.
However, because the content of Ni is only 0.75%, the corrosion resistance is limited, so 420 will rust.
