Sheet 1.4003

Type 1.4003 stainless steel is a utility ferritic stainless steel, often used in place of mild steel. It offers the benefits of more highly alloyed stainless steels such as strength, corrosion and abrasion resistance, durability and low maintenance.

In addition type 1.4003 Is weldable and formable allowing it to be fabricated using conventional techniques.

Benefits of using type 1.4003 stainless steel:

• 250 times greater corrosion resistance than mild steel
• Corrosion/abrasion resistance
• Economical - Low initial cost, low maintenance
• High Strength
• Excellent impact resistance
• Can be welded by conventional methods
• Can eliminate need for protective coating
• Can eliminate need for corrosion allowance
• Proven success in many applications across a wide range of industries
• Good performance at elevated temperatures
• Lower cost than austenitic stainless

• This has led to the use of type 4003 stainless steel in many applications across a broad range of industries:

Applications:

• Bulk wet materials handling
• Vehicle frames/chassis
• Rail car hoppers
• Sweeper & gritter vehicles
• Conveyors, chutes, screen, troughs
• Bunkers & hoppers
• Tanks & containers
• Chimneys & ducting
• Enclosures & cabinets
• Walkways, stairs & railings
• Cable trays Industries
• Road & Rail Transport (Passenger & Freight)
• Bulk Handling
• Water
• Railway Infrastructure
• Power Generation
• Sugar Manufacture
• Agriculture
• Telecommunications & Electrical
• General Engineering
• Mining
