13-8PH Steel Can Take on any Challenge

The strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant steel for a variety of applications - 13-8PH steel

13-8ph Steel
13-8PH steel is a martensitic precipitation age-hardenable stainless steel that exhibits good resistance to stress corrosion cracking. It has high strength and good ductility, which are developed by a single low-temperature heat treatment. This stainless steel is tough and ductile in both the transverse and longitudinal directions in large sections. It is useful in environments where high strength, corrosion resistance, toughness, and stress-corrosion cracking resistance are important requirements. 13 8 stainless steel has better transverse toughness properties due to its low carbon content, tight chemical composition control, and vacuum melting. It is a tough-machining stainless steel and is best machined in the H1150M condition. Its speeds must be roughly 25 percent lower for an optimum finish and tool life. It can be formed with the use of conventional techniques with a formability degree limited by its initial yield strength. This stainless steel grade possesses good fabrication qualities and can be age-hardened as well by single low-temperature treatment.

Applications of 13 8 Stainless Steel

13 8 stainless steel is popular in aerospace applications, including shafts, valves, landing gears, and structural sections. It is also helpful in a wide variety of other applications, such as:
  • Injection molding equipment
  • Nuclear and petrochemical industries
  • Fittings
  • Pins
  • Nuclear reactor components
  • Machined and cold-headed fasteners
  • Worms
  • Lock washers
  • Universal joints

Advantages of 13-8 PH Stainless Steel

  • Stronger and more durable than other types of steel
  • Resistant to corrosion
  • Higher melting point
