Razor blade steel, Sandvik 13C26, is supplied as cold rolled strip in coils. The tensile strength is 1070±100 MPa (155±14.5 ksi). The strip is supplied with a dull, very fine surface, slit edges and extra accuracy on straightness. Wide strip is slit into finished sizes in special slitters with cemented carbide tools, which give very high edge quality and very close width tolerances. A corrosion-preventive oil is applied to the strip. Coils are carefully packed, with various packing materials being used according to customer requirements, destination and method of transport.
Razor blade strip steel in martensitic stainless chromium steel delivered as cold-rolled strip steel with close dimensional tolerances and high accuracy on flatness and straightness.
The razor blade strip steel is welded into a long, continuous length, which is wound on a paper core with an inner diameter of 305 mm (12.0 in.). The welds have narrow dimensional tolerances, high strength and are marked. Bundle weight max. 300 kg (660 lbs).
