13-8 Round Bar
13-8 stainless steel alloy (UNS S13800) is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel that has excellent strength, high hardness, superior toughness, and good corrosion resistance. Compared to other ferrous-base materials alloy 13-8 offers a high level of useful mechanical properties under severe environmental conditions. . Good transverse toughness properties are achieved by tight chemical composition control, low carbon content, and vacuum melting. 13-8 Stainless steel alloy in the annealed condition can be strengthened further by relatively low temperature heat treatment. 13-8 Stainless steel alloy can be machined under all conditions thought this steel is known as a tough machining stainless steel.
13-8 Stainless steel application and uses are: Aerospace components, landing gear, shafts & valves, nuclear reactor components, petrochemical industry, injection molding equipment etc.
