Austenitic Hexagon Bar

Grade 304 is the most versatile and widely used stainless steel, available in a wider range of forms, products and finishes than any other. In fact, austenitic stainless steel is approximately 70% of overall stainless steel production. Austenitic stainless steel hexagon bar is not magnetic; due to its high nickel and chromium composition, it is the most resistant to corrosion of all the stainless steel groups.In addition, austenitic stainless steel hexagon bar provides excellent mechanical properties. Heat treatment cannot be used to harden austenitic stainless steel hexagon bar, although it can be hardened considerably by cold working.

Grades Available:
Primary Elements:
Typical austenitic stainless steel is 18/8 stainless, which is composed of 18% chromium and 8% nickel.

Martensitic Hexagon Bar

Martensitic stainless steels were designed as a type of stainless steel alloy that could be hardened by heat treatment and would be corrosion resistant – although not as corrosion resistant as austenitic or ferritic stainless steels. Martensitic stainless steel hexagon bar is highly machinable and is known for being wear resistant.

National Specialty Alloys, Inc. carries stainless steel hexagon bar in precipitation hardened martensitic in 17-4 PH. Martensitic precipitation hardened stainless steel hexagon bar is known for its combination of strength, corrosion resistance, being heat treatable and easily fabricated (when compared to other stainless steels). Besides being used in stainless steel hexagon bar, martensitic precipitation hardened stainless steels are still used in rod, forgings, wire and flat rolled form as well.

Grades Available:
Primary Elements:
Between 11.5 to 18% chromium, no nickel, and substantial amounts of carbon, some martensitic stainless steel hexagon bar includes other alloying elements in small amounts.
