1.90 C, 0.35 Mn, 0.60 Si, 20.00 Cr, 0.65 W, 1.00 Mo, 4.00 V, Balance Fe

The unique combination of wear resistance, toughness, polishability and corrosion resistance makes CTS 204P an excellent candidate material for pelletizer, granulator and high-performance industrial and custom knives as well as food processing equipment.  This alloy is now available in Strip product form.

The Carpenter CTS™ family of alloys offers superior edge retention and surface finish, an ability to be machined to a fine edge, and consistent heat-treatability from lot to lot.  Consider CTS alloys for many blade applications including commercial food processing, paper processing, textile, packaging, recycling/refuse, kitchen knives, hand tools, scissors/shears, shaving razors, sport/hunting knives, ice skates, military/defense, law enforcement, salon blades and various surgical/medical applications.
