How steel is shipped
Bars are shipped as 48" bars as long as they can be shipped with UPS. 72" bars are cut in half for shipping, 60" bars are cut to 36 +24 for shipping. If shipped with Canada Post or another carrier, they will need to be cut half (24" for 48", 36" for 72", 36+24" for 60" bars)
If you want steel cut to 4", 6", 8" or 12" pieces, please purchase by the foot and put a note in the cart "Order Instructions" drop down box of the size you would like it cut.
No instructions will result in the longest possible piece being shipped.
CPM MagnaCut is a unique powder metallurgy stainless tool steel with a design which eliminates chromium carbide in the heat treated microstructure. An excellent combination of toughness and wear resistance is achieved by having only small, high hardness, vanadium and niobium carbides, giving CPM MagnaCut properties similar to non-stainless steel CPM 4V. Being free from chromium carbide also leads to improved corrosion resistance. This product offers an excellent combination of properties for
