Ferritc Stainless Steel TP409/409L Tube for Automotive ASME SA268 ASTM A268
Ferritic stainless steels are classified in the 400 series, usually with 10% to 30% chromium content, and are often chosen for their excellent corrosion resistance and elevated temperature oxidation resistance. With greater strength than carbon steels, ferritics provide an advantage in many applications where thinner materials and reduced weight are necessary, such as automotive emission control systems. They are nonhardenable by heat treating and are always magnetic.
A ferritic stainless steel tube, type 439 outperforms both type 409 and 436 in oxidation and corrosion resistance in the most-demanding environments. Type 439 stainless steel tube withstands temperatures upwards of 1700˚F (927˚C), exceeding the limits of both types 409 and 436. Its chemical composition gives type 436 ideal formability for difficult-to-form systems and components.
TP409/409L have the lowest chromium content of all stainless steels and are ideal for slightly corrosive environments where localized rust is acceptable. The least expensive of all stainless steels, type 409 was initially created for automotive exhaust systems silencers, but can now be found in automotive exhaust tubing and catalytic converter casings. Type 410L is often used for containers, buses and LCD monitor frames.
Typical Manufacturing Specifications:
- Harding by heat treatment
- High hardness with good ductility
- Good corrosion resistance capability

Grade 409/409L is a titanium stabilized Ferritic Stainless Steel , most commonly known for use in automotive exhaust systems. It features good mechanical properties and high temperature corrosion resistance. As a matter of fact, 409 / 409L as a chromium Stainless Steel can also be used in applications where weldability and corrosion protection are demanded. Although it is susceptible to rust formation, rarely used for decoration purpose, 409 / 409L stainless steel demonstrates excellent corrosion resistance against gas corrosion.
is suitable for service in highly corrosive conditions and where high strength is required. The properties of this alloy are being widely used in offshore oil and gas exploration and production and in heat exchangers in petrochemical and chemical processing.
