In Sanmac®materials, machinability has been improved without jeopardizing properties such as corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. The non-metallic inclusions in Sanmac®steels are of great significance to the improved machinability. In addition to sulphides, Sanmac®steels contain oxide inclusions that improve chip breaking and reduce tool wear.

FAQ - Sanmac®stainless steels
