Utility 3Cr12 Ferritic EN 1.4003 Hot Rolled Stainless Steel Plates
3Cr12 is recognised as the original and now the world’s most specified 12% chromium
utility ferritic stainless steel.
The main advantage of these utility ferritics over other ferritic stainless steels is that
they are tough, even when welded, in thicknesses of up to 30mm and retain their toughness
at temperatures below freezing point.
The corrosion resistance of the utility ferritics is largely determined by their chromium content
and is thus similar to other 12% chromium ferritic stainless steels.
In terms of atmospheric corrosion resistance, the utility ferritics are superior to mild steel,
weathering steel, copper and aluminium.When exposed to aggressive atmospheric conditions,
staining may occur, but this does not affect the lifetime performance.
However, if aesthetic appearance is important, it is recommended that the utility ferritics
are painted or a more corrosion resistant stainless steel is used.
The utility ferritics have also found widespread use in wet sliding abrasion conditions and
in aqueous environments involving exposure and/or immersion.
The applications include
