FAQ

[Product line-up] What are the differences and features of FW1 and FW2?

A FW1 is 14%Cr stainless steel with greater corrosion resistance and formability than SUS430 (18%Cr) by adding trace amounts of Sn, and FW2 is a 16%Cr stainless steel product with even higher corrosion resistance than FW1, and achieves equivalent corrosion resistance and better formability than SUS304 (18%Cr-8%Ni) by adding Sn to 16%Cr steel.

These two steel materials are able to cover almost the entire range of uses of SUS430 and SUS304. Thoroughly conserving natural resources decrease rare metals by up to 40% and minimizes the effects of raw material prices.

[Product processing] Is welding possible?

A As with other high-purity ferritic stainless steel, weldability is good, and welds have excellent corrosion resistance and formability.

FAQ

[Comparison with other products] While the Cr% (17%) of NSSC 430D is equal to that of SUS430, it has better corrosion resistance. Why?

A The precipitation of chromium carbides, which hinder corrosion resistance, is minimized by the low C+N contents and the addition of Ti.

This is referred to as a high-purity ferritic stainless steel, in relation to past ferritic stainless steels represented by SUS430.

FAQ

[Applications] Is this often used in hot water heater tanks?

A We have 30 years of experience in use in tanks.

In addition to the corrosion resistance of the material itself, resistance to crevice corrosion is also a critical factor in the manufacture of tanks. This depends on the weldability and formability solutions provided.

[Comparison with other products] We use SUS316 because SUS304 lacks sufficient corrosion resistance. Could ferritic stainless steel could used as an alternative?

  • An excellent thickness accuracy and flatness are obtained.

Rolled using a leading-edge cold rolling mill for superb thickness accuracy and flatness.

  • Wide range of grades and sizes are available.

Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal manufactures various steel types for a wide range of applications. A wide variety of product dimensions are available, at thicknesses of 0.2 to 6.0mm, widths up to 1,524mm, and lengths up to 8,000mm. Nippon Steel manufactures various steel types for different usages. A wide variety of product dimensions are available, for example, thickness from 0.2 to 6.0mm, widths up to 1,524mm, and lengths up to 8,000mm. Customers can select the optimum materials for their intended usage. We are manufacturing stainless steel sheet or strip with a width of 914 mm (3 ft), 1,000 mm, 1,219 mm (4 ft), and 1,524 mm (5 ft).

  • The surface finish is very beautiful.

We take extreme care to control the surface polishing of the mill roll of the cold-rolling mill, along with handling, such as annealing and pickling. We can deliver a distinctly beautiful surface finish. We also manufacture polished products, from No. 3 finishing to buff polishing, and hairline finishing, upon request.

FAQ

[Heat resistance] What is the maximum temperature at which stainless steel be used?

A While it has oxidation resistance at high-temperatures, high-temperature strength, and high-temperature fatigue strength, a consultation is recommended since greater

importance may be attached to different characteristics depending on the application.
