Martensitic Stainless Steels

The International Stainless Steel Forum has published a brochure on martensitic stainless steels.

Martensitic stainless steels have an excellent strength to weight ratio, strong resistance to corrosion, a good hardness and a wide range of applications, of which the best known are probably knife steels, which are capable of holding a sharp edge.

To provide the right environment for further growth of this range of materials it was necessary to research existing and potential applications, to provide a technical introduction to the material and testimonials from existing producers who have used the material and can talk with authority about its value.

We recommend this brochure to producers, stockists and end-users, with the hope that they will find it a helpful tool for their own market development activities.

The brochure can be downloaded free of charge from the ISSF website. Click here
