SAE 416 stainless steel is one of the most machinable stainless steel alloys thanks to added sulfur and it is considered a free machining alloy. This alloy can be hardened with heat treatment.
Despite the higher sulfur levels, SAE 416 maintains good corrosion resistance against acids and freshwater and has good heat resistance. With this in mind, SAE 416 is commonly used in steam or water turbine blades, washing machines, and valves. E.J. Basler offers precision 416 stainless steel machined parts with superior quality, tolerances, and surface finish.
