Introduction Overview MA is a lean heat-resistant austenitic stainless steel developed for applications requiring high creep strength and good corrosion resistance. Features of Inox MA MA features extremely high creep resistance and creep rupture strength, good resistance to high temperature corrosion and brush corrosion in most gaseous media, high yield strength and tensile strength at high temperatures; good formability and weldability, as well as enough machinability. Apart from the alloying elements chromium and nickel, MA stainless steel also contains a few rare earth metals, which significantly enhance its antioxidant capacity. Nitrogen is added to improve creep properties and make this steel a complete austenite. Despite its relatively low chromium and nickel contents, MA shares the same high temperature properties as the high alloyed alloy steel and nickel-based alloy in many applications.

Tensile Strength Range to Mpa Precipitation Hardening Stainless Steel which is chromium-nickel stainless, which contain alloying additions such as aluminium, copper or titanium that allow them to be hardened by a solution and that provide an optimum combination of the properties of martensitic and austenitic grades. Like martensitic grades, they develop their high strength and hardness through a variety of heat treatments and they also have the corrosion resistance of austenitic steel.
Precipitation Hardening stainless steels, or hardenable chromium-nickel alloys, are classified as martensitic, semi-austenitic or austenitic in the aged condition. The martensitic such as Type and semiaustenitic such as Type can provide higher strength than the austenitic such as Type , also known as A They are used in aircraft parts and commonly viewed as bar alloys, but are also available in flat roll products with a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
The martensitic PH steels are used in aerospace, chemical and petrochemical, and food processing applications. They are austenitic in the annealed state, but martensitic in the hardened condition.
The most well known precipitation hardening steel is PH. The PH grades achieve high tensile properties in heat treated conditions. Applications for PH alloy steels include aerospace components, flat springs and retaining rings, among others. The advantage of precipitation hardening steels is that they can be supplied in a "solution treated" condition, which is readily machinable.
After machining or another fabrication method, a single, low temperature heat treatment can be applied to increase the strength of the steel. This is known as ageing or age-hardening. As it is carried out at low temperature, the component undergoes no distortion. Characterization Precipitation hardening steels are characterized into one of three groups based on their final microstructures after heat treatment. The three types are martensitic e. Applications Valves and other engine components High strength shafts.
