ARCAP® AP1D: Excellent machinability
The AP1D grade has been specially created for all kinds of machining work with much better machinability than stainless Steel alloys and without chemical compatibility (electrolysis). On the contrary than Brass when harsh environment is involved, ARCAP® AP1D does not need nickel plating.
The ease with which AP1D is machined is reflected in:
ARCAP® AP1C and AP1: high elasticity and formability
AP1C (used in strip and bars for parts that will undergo forming through twisting, bending, riveting, crimping, stamping and so on, and for any kind of weld, especially through laser welding) is the spring grade.
ARCAP® AP4: Remarkable corrosion resistance at high temperature
AP4 is available in strip, sheets, bars and wire less, easy to turn than the previous two grades. It can nevertheless be machined with no greater difficulty than chrome-nickel-molybdenum steels.
