Stainless Steel Tool Wrap – What Is It?
Stainless steel tool wrap is a temperature resistant metal foil that is used to protect components during heat treatment from decarburisation, scaling and pitting. Otherwise known as stainless steel heat treatment foil, this is used in temperatures up to 1090°C (2000°F) to protect from oxide build up. The grade 321 stainless steel which we use is actually more commonly found in the aerospace industry for high temperature shielding applications however its properties are perfectly suited to be used as heat treatment foil. It is used by toolmakers and component manufacturers alike and is a cost effective alternative to using a vacuum furnace.
