  • Typical applications include:
  • Rolling element bearings
  • Valve seats
  • High quality knife blades
  • Surgical instruments
  • Chisels

Heat Treatment:

  • Annealing – Full anneal – 850-900°C, slow furnace cool to about 600°C and then air cool. Sub-critical Annealing – 735-785°C and slow furnace cool.
  • Hardening – Heat to 1010-1065°C, followed by quenching in warm oil or air. Oil quenching is necessary for heavy sections. Immediately temper at 150-370°C to obtain a wide variety of hardness values and mechanical properties as indicated in the accompanying table.
  • Tempering in the range 425-565°C is to be avoided because of reduced impact resistance and corrosion resistance. Tempering in the range 590-675°C results in lower hardness (the product become machinable) and high impact resistance.

Welding:-If welding is necessary pre-heat at 250°C and follow welding with a full anneal. Grade 420 filler will give a high hardness weld (although not as high as the 440C), but 309 or 310 will produce soft welds with higher ductility.

Alternative Grades

Grade Why it might be chosen instead of 440C
440A/B Slightly softer and more corrosion resistant grade needed
440F High machinability required, with same hardness and hardenability as 440C
420 Lower strength and hardness needed than any of the 440 Grades
416 Higher machinability required, and the much lower hardness and strength is still adequate
