These tailor made strips are manufactured out of specific requirements of customers. The basic raw material usually used is C-80 for hardness upto 52 HRC and C-98 for high hardness, i.e. above 53 HRC.
This flexibility helps the end user un-necessary trouble of piece mill wise hardening. For example, in case of MRTC Knives, the end user has to take a piece of steel 1.00mm thick, then it has to be hardened and ground to .80mm. Thus it covers cost of unnecessary hardening, grinding of .20mm, increased labour cost, power and weight loss. Whereas, when the consumer can get material in Strip Form in .80 mm thickness, in 58-60 HRC hardness, then he can manufacture the material much cheaper, saving the extra cost of hardening,grinding,etc.
We are a specialist in providing these types of hardened tempered strips, which are manufactured keeping in mind the exact requirement of the customer so that he can make end products in a more easier process saving a lot in production cost.
