Specific Applications

Stainless Steel 321

Stainless Steel 321 has similar composition to 304 Stainless Steels but with addition of Titanium. This alloy has excellent resistance to corrosion and is also ideal for high temperature environments. Stainless Steel 321 is also known as AISI 321, Nirosta 4541, Polarit 731, and Remanit 4541.

Stainless Steel DTD 189A

Stainless Steel DTD 189A is widely used in the aerospace industry, with some of its specific uses being locking wire and other types of fasteners.

Stainless Steel 316LVM

Regarded as ‘Medical Grade’, Stainless Steel 316LVM is vacuum melted to achieve the extremely high levels of purity and ‘cleanliness’ required for surgical implants. It has excellent resistance in physiological environments, to general and intergranular corrosion, to pitting and crevice corrosion. These characteristics make it ideal for both medical application and high precision electronics. Stainless Steel 316LVM is also known as AISI 316LVM.

Nitronic** 60

Nitronic 60 is an anti-galling and wear resistant stainless steel. Additions of Silicon and Manganese have given this alloy the ability to prevent wear and galling. Nitronic 60 is also known as Alloy 218 and HPA 50.

Nitronic** 50

Nitronic 50 exhibits corrosion resistance and that is superior to type 316 Stainless Steel. It has good mechanical properties at ambient and sub-zero temperatures. Unlike other austenitic stainless steels, it does not become magnetic when cold worked or cooled to sub-zero temperatures. Nitronic 50 is therefore considered for applications in the oil & gas, offshore, chemical and marine industries. Nitronic 50 is also known as Aquamet 2, Aquamet 22, and Temet 25.

Beryllium Copper CB 101

This age hardenable copper alloy combines a range of properties suited to meet the exacting requirements of many automotive, electronic and aerospace industries .A good conductor of electricity, Beryllium Copper CB 101 is used in the manufacture of different types of springs. Beryllium Copper CB 101 is also known as Cupro Beryllium, Beryllium Copper Alloy 25, Berylco 25, NGK 25, and Ampcoloy 83.

Ni-Span-C Alloy 902®

A precipitation hardenable Nickel-Iron-Chromium alloy having outstanding controllable thermoelastic coefficient characteristics and excellent oxidation resistance in high temperature atmospheres. The alloy can be processed to have a constant modulus of elasticity at temperatures ranging from -45 to +65°C (-50 to +150°F).

MP35N

MP35N is an age hardenable Nickel-Cobalt base alloy that has a unique combination of properties – ultra high strength, toughness, ductility and outstanding corrosion resistance. MP35N resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other chloride solutions. It also has excellent resistance to crevice and stress corrosion cracking in sea water and other hostile environments. The four alloy elements in MP35N are the basis for corrosion resistance in almost every Stainless Steel, Nickel and Cobalt-based alloy commonly used in the industry. The alloy resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other Chloride solutions, as well as the mineral acids (Nitric, Hydrochloric and Sulphuric). MP35N is suitable where a high combination of strength, high modulus values and good corrosion resistance are required. Applications for this alloy also include medical devices and dental products.

Phynox†

This Cobalt-Chromium-Nickel alloy gives a combination of high strength, ductility and good mechanical properties and is age hardenable. Phynox† also has excellent fatigue life, corrosion resistance in numerous environments and is non-magnetic. Phynox† often provides the ideal solution whenever high mechanical performance is required under severely corrosive service conditions. Its mechanical strength increases with cold rolling strain, while additional strengthening can be achieved by age hardening at 500°C. It is recommended to use Phynox† where a high resistance to corrosion and / or low relaxation at temperatures up to 380°C (715°F) are required. This alloy is used in medical devices, dental products, surgical implants and orthopedics. Phynox† is also known as Elgiloy, Conichrome and Alloy 3J21.
