Generally speaking, for processing stainless steel parts, the more common carbide grades are YG6, YG8, YG8N, YW1, YW2, etc.
These grades have good wear resistance, corrosion resistance and high temperature performance, and can meet the requirements of stainless steel processing.
Among them, YG6 and YG8 are commonly used carbide grades, suitable for processing stainless steel, carbon steel and other materials. They have high hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance, but low toughness and are not suitable for processing materials with high toughness requirements.
YW1 and YW2 are carbide grades with high toughness and wear resistance, and are suitable for processing high-strength materials such as stainless steel and titanium alloys. They have good high temperature performance and corrosion resistance, and can maintain a long service life at high temperatures.
In addition, different carbide grades can be selected for different types of stainless steel. For example, for processing 304 stainless steel parts, you can choose grades such as YG6 or YG8; for processing 316L stainless steel parts, you can choose grades such as YW1 or YW2.
It should be noted that when selecting cemented carbide grades , in addition to considering material properties and processing requirements, factors such as manufacturer and product quality also need to be considered. At the same time, during use, you need to pay attention to the operating procedures and usage methods to avoid safety accidents and unnecessary losses.
