Special Steels display excellent strength and toughness, resistance to stress corrosion and oxidisation and are commonly used across the aerospace, defence and high technology industries.
A 16% chromium stainless steel modified by the addition of nickel in the British Standard Aerospace series of alloys. S80 is used where mechanical properties higher than 410 are required, and where corrosive conditions are not too severe. It is one of the most corrosion resistant grades of martensitic stainless steels, displaying excellent strength and toughness, resistance to stress corrosion and oxidisation up to 8000⁰C.
An austenitic 18/9 chromium-nickel stainless steel in the British Standard Aerospace series of alloys. S130 is used for heavy welded assemblies which cannot be annealed after welding; where corrosive conditions are severe in aircraft parts, and also in the defence and high technology industries.
A precipitation hardening, aerospace grade stainless steel, S143 combines high mechanical strength with moderate to good corrosion resistance in a variety of media. It is used for mechanical components in aerospace and defence and high-tech mechanical applications.
