When it comes to stainless steel, there are many options on the market. Each version carrying its own properties and benefits. Thus, it is always best to consult with an expert when deciding on which steel product is best for your project’s need. The professionals at Alliant Metals take pride in their extensive knowledge and exceptional customer. That is why they have created this helpful on 15-5ph stainless steel.
A modified version of the 17-4ph, the 15-5ph has a more refine microstructure. The refined structure provides improved toughness. Because of the modifications, the 15-5ph has a low temperature hardening. However, because the steel can be heat treated at a variety of temperatures, a wide range of properties can be attained.
Designed to be corrosion resistant, the 15-5ph stainless steel is similar to that of the 17-4. With laboratory testing, the material showed very little rusting after 500 hours of extreme heat exposure. To be more exact, the exposure was 5% salt fog at 95°F. Further, the general level of corrosion resistance is best in a fully hardened condition. Decreasing only slightly as the again temperature is increased. The excellent corrosion resistant properties make this material suitable for a range of different industries.
