Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel is an austenitic stainless steel with a blend of strength and corrosion resistance that is better than Stainless Steel 316, 316L, 317 and 317L. In fact, Nitronic 50 has about double the yield strength at room temperature compared to Stainless Steel 316/316L and 317/317L. Additionally, Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel has good mechanical properties at elevated and sub-zero s. temperatures. Another characteristic of Nitronic 50 is that it does not become magnetic even when severely cold worked - unlike many other austenitic stainless steels. Another advantage of using Nitronic 50 Stainless Steel is its outstanding corrosion resistance in harsh environments, especially in marine application As noted previously, Nitronic 50 is much stronger than Stainless Steel 316/316L and 317/317L; however, the same fabrication equipment and procedures used for the Stainless Steel 300 grades can be utilized for Nitronic 50. In addition, the same cooling techniques used for Stainless Steel 316/316L and 317/317L can be utilized for Nitronic 50.
