The designation used for certain straight chromiun steels which exhibit microstructure consisting mainly of ferrite at ordinary temperatures. Ferritic stainless steels are divided into two classifications: hardenable, and nonhardenable. When rapidly cooled from elevated temperatures, the nonhardenable grades (ferritic) have a ferritic microstructure. The hardenable grades (martensitic) will exhibit a martensitic microstructure when rapidly cooled.
