All sizes resistant have been super-passivated for resistance from corrosion of atmosphere , fresh water, food acids and neutral and basic salts.
Note: Metric SS L-Keys are constructed of a round shank of 17-4 stainless steel with the hex machined on the end and is heat treated to R/C 45-48.

416 ss and 17-4PH ss, are a martensitic precipitation hardening alloy which offers high strength and hardness while maintaining excellent corrosion resistant properties. RoHS Compliant Products

17-4 stainless Corrosion Resistance:
Useful resistance to dry atmospheres, fresh water and mild alkalies and acids, but less resistant than the equivalent non-free-machining grades. Less corrosion resistant than the austenitic grades and also less than 17% chromium ferritic alloys such as Grade 430. High sulphur content free machining grades such as 17-4 are totally unsuitable for marine or other chloride exposure.
416 ss, and 17-4 ss alloys are magnetic.
