NITRONIC 50 Stainless Steel
Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel provides a combination of corrosion resistance and strength not found in any other commercial material available in its price range. This austenitic stainless steel has corrosion resistance greater than that provided by Types 316, 316L, 317 and 317L, plus approximately twice the yield strength at room temperatures. In addistion, Nitronic 50 stainless steel has very good mechanical properties at both elevated and sub-zero temperatures. Unlike many austenitic stainless steels, Nitronic 50 does not become magnetic when cold worked or cooled to sub-zero temperatures. High Strength (HS) Nitronic 50 stainless steel has a yield strength about three to four times that of Type 316 stainless stee.
Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel is available in bar, master alloy pigs, ingots and forging quality billets. Forms available from other manufacturers include castings, extrusions, seamless tubing and plate.
Outstanding corrosion resistance gives Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel the leading edge for applications where Types 316, 316L, 317 and 317L are only marginal. It's an effective alloy for the petroleum, petrochemical, chemical, fertilizer, nuclear fuel recycling, pulp and paper, textile, food processing and marine industries.
Components using combination of excellent corrosion resistance and high strength currently include pumps, valves and fittings, fasteners, cables, chains, screens and wire cloth, marine hardware, boat and pump shafting, heat exchanger parts, springs and photgraphic equipment.
