X50CrMoV15 is a high hardness martensitic stainless steel. In strip form, its dominant use is for high quality knife blades.
|420MoV||C 0.45~0.55, Cr 14.00~15.00， Mo 0.50~0.80, V 0.10~0.20|
DIN 1.4116 stainless grade combines the following characteristics:
Very high hardness – Up to 56 Rockwell C
Retention of blade sharpness
Moderate corrosion resistance better than standard 12% martensitic grades
X50CrMoV15 uses the moderately high carbon content of 0.50% to develop a high hardness martensitic microstructure.
The higher chromium plus small molybdenum addition gives a greater corrosion resistance than standard martensitic grades.
Vanadium allows higher tempering temperatures to be used and gives greater toughness.
Applications which illustrate these features include:
High quality knives, cutting tools, food blades.
