It combines the amazing corrosion resistance characteristics, one-step age hardenability, ease of fabrication, and yield strength.
In the field of precipitation-hardening stainless steel, it is an advanced martensitic alloy used in production. It combines the amazing corrosion resistance characteristics, one-step age hardenability, ease of fabrication, and yield strength. It has three times greater characteristics than that of standard stainless grade 304. Thus, you can have all these incredible features in a single piece of material.
O’Hare Precision Metals can provide a wide range of company-supplied or customer-supplied components and materials. Just like how we can offer you the best 455 Stainless bar stocks and 455 Stainless round bar stocks in O’Hare!
As with other precipitation-hardenable stainless steels, this stainless steel can be machined while still in the annealed condition and welded similarly to other stainless steels.
Because of its low work-hardening rate, it can be cold formed significantly. During hardening, the dimensional change is only about -0.001 in/in, allowing close-tolerance finish machining while the material is still in the annealed state.
Aircraft parts and systems and medical instruments are just some of the many applications of 455 Stainless.
