Is Nitronic 60 a stainless steel?

Is Nitronic 60 a stainless steel?

Nitronic 60 is a nitrogen strengthened austenitic stainless steel, with outstanding strength and resistance to wear and galling. It has corrosion resistance better than 304, and pitting resistance better than 316. It is also available in bar as a high strength version, Nitronic 60 HS.

What is nitronic material?

Nitronic 50 is an austenitic premium stainless steel that provides better corrosion resistance than 300 or 400 series stainless. The combination of strength, superior corrosion resistance, and low magnetic permability makes this alloy a top choice for high-risk applications such as medical implantations.

What kind of stainless steel is Nitronic 60?

NITRONIC 60 Stainless Steel is available in bar, master alloy pigs, ingots and forging billets. Forms available from other manufacturers using melt include sheet and strip, castings, extrusions, seamless tubing and plate. NITRONIC 60 Stainless Steel is covered by U.S. Patent 3,912,503.

Which is better Armco Nitronic 60 or 316?

AK Steel’s ARMCO NITRONIC 60 Stainless Steel provides a significantly lower cost way to fight wear and galling compared with cobalt-bearing and high nickel alloys. Its uniform corrosion resistance is better than Type 304 in most media. Chloride pitting resistance is superior to Type 316.

What is psi of Nitronic 60 book hpalloy?

Button at left is Type 316 stainless steel tested against Type 304 at only 3,000 psi (21 MPa). The scoring shown on the Type 316 is the result of metal pickup initiated by galling. Button at right is NITRONIC 60 stainless tested at 44,000 psi (303 MPa) against Type 303.

Can a Nitronic 60 bar be hot forged?

Electralloy’s Nitronic® 60 bars are also available in a high-strength condition attained by proprietary processing. Bars cannot be subsequently hot forged or welded without loss of strength. Corrosion resistance may also be lessened to varying degrees depending upon environment. Refer to Nitronic® 60 Product Data Bulletin for additional . 2-2019
