The possible applications of Martensite range from knives, blades and tools to pump components or medical instruments. Even though martensites belong to the group of „stainless steels“, they have a high carbon content with a low Cr content. Corrosion resistance is therefore rather low. Ferrites, on the other hand, are weldable and polishable (except for the titanium-stabilized grades), are not hardenable due to their low carbon content, but have better corrosion resistance due to a relatively high Cr content and offer good thermal conductivity. This is often required, for example, in electronic components. You can also obtain our corrosion-resistant steels in many standard profile and special profile shapes.
