Cleveland-Cliffs 444 is a low carbon, low nitrogen, dual stabilized ferritic stainless steel that provides pitting and crevice corrosion resistance superior to most ferritic stainless steels and some austenitic stainless steels. It is equivalent to Type 304 austenitic stainless steel in many corrosion environments and has a lower coefficient of expansion and better thermal conductivity. Cleveland- Cliffs 444 has superior chloride stress-corrosion cracking resistance to Type 304 and Type 316 austenitic stainless steels. It is oxidation and creep resistant at elevated temperatures, making it a preferred material for the most demanding applications in automotive exhaust. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming and joining.
