Nitronic 50 Bars is austenitic stainless steel made up of 19-21% Chromium and 8-10.5% Nickel, with the addition of Molybdenum, Manganese, and Nitrogen further strengthening its makeup. Nitrogen, in particular, helps to create an austenite structure that is both strong and non-magnetic, giving the steel more excellent rust and corrosion resistance compared to traditional stainless steel. The low levels of Carbon ensure that these bars remain tough even as temperatures drop below zero Celsius, with a high fatigue strength also making this product great for applications such as fasteners and cold working.
Nitronic 50 bars are widely used as a high-strength stainless steel alloy, often within the automotive and marine industries. It offers excellent corrosion resistance, even at high temperatures, due to its content of nitrogen and other alloying elements. With excellent wear resistance, fatigue strength, and tensile strength, this metal is ideal for producing components that require superior stress or heat. This metal can also be formed into a range of shapes with different methods, such as bending or rolling and welding options are plentiful due to its ferritic nature. Whether an application requires strong joining properties or superior wear characteristics, Nitronic 50 Bars provide versatility and long-lasting performance.
