Increased Yield Strength

Precipitation hardening stainless steels use nickel and chromium as major alloying elements. In the solution annealed condition, these steels have a semi-austenitic structure allowing for good machining and forming characteristics. Click on an image below to view our material range.

Intricate Parts

Precipitation hardening stainless steels finds use where high strength and good corrosion resistance are required as well as high fatigue strength, good resistance to galling and stress corrosion resistance.

Reduced distortion during heat treatment makes these steels particularly suitable for intricate parts requiring machining and welding and where freedom from distortion is a requirement.
