Stainless Steel (forging materials)
Cromdane Steel, Inc. is a forged stainless steel supplier of high quality stainless steel parts. We supply custom stainless steel forged parts to our customers exact specifications.
Stainless Steel Forgings Characteristics
Stainless steel is a popular material for industrial parts. It combines the strength of steel with superior corrosion and heat resistance. Additionally, stainless steel has easy machining capabilities
Stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5 percent chromium resulting in corrosion resistance which can be amplified by further increasing chromium content.
Forged stainless steel enhances and amplifies the existing qualities of stainless steel. The forging process improves the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, permitting the grade to endure and withstand harsh, aggressive and more extreme environments. Forging creates a continuous grain flow that follows the stainless steel part, unlike other processes like casting or machining, which helps to provide strength.

The following is an overview of our primary inventory, in-house available for immediate saw cut/delivery. We have steel arriving on regular intervals, so if you do not see what you need, give us a call and let us help you meet your manufacturing/delivery needs.
Benefits of stainless steel forgings:
- Protective oxide layer that assists in corrosion assistance.
- Resist stress cracking, crevice corrosion, pitting and deformation
- High corrosion resistance
- High heat resistance
A stronger part due to aligned internal grain structure
Stainless steel is ideally used in corrosive environments such as pumps, valves, chemical and petrochemical processing equipment and marine equipment.
