NITRONIC 60 Stainless Steel
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. Room temperatrue yield strength is nearly twice that of Types 304 and 316. In addition, Nitronic 60 stainless steel provides excellent high-temperature oxidation resistance and low-temperature impact resistance.
Nitronic 60 stainless steel is available in bar, master alloy pigs, ingots and forging billets. Other forms available include sheet and strip, castings, extrusions, seamless tubing and plate.
Outstanding galling resistance at both ambient and elevated temperatures makes Nitronic 60 stainless steel a valuable material for valve sterns, seats and trim; fastening systems, including nuts and bolts; screening; chain-drive systems; pins, busings and roller bearings; and pump components such as wear rings and lobes. Nitronic 60 is the most effective wear and galling resistant alloy for bridge pins and other critical construction applications.
