Nitronic 60

Atlanta Rod manufactures Nitronic 60 stainless steel hex bolts, nuts, and screws to your custom specifications, and we guarantee to meet your delivery schedule.

Nitronic 60 stainless steel provides a significantly lower cost way to fight wear and galling compared with cobalt-bearing and high nickel alloys. Its uniform corrosion resistance is better than Type 304 in nearly every situation and Nitronic 60 has chloride pitting resistance superior to Type 316. The room temperature yield strength is nearly twice that of Types 304 and 316. In addition, Nitronic 60 stainless steel provides excellent high-temperature oxidation resistance and low-temperature impact resistance.

Due to its grain structure, the galling resistance of Nitronic 60 is superior to that of any other stainless steel.  It resists wear, tearing or freeze up of both the primary and contact materials over a wide range of service temperatures.  The elevated temperature wear resistance of Nitronic 60 is excellent despite its relatively low hardness when compared with cobalt and nickel-base wear alloys.  It also performs well in metal-to-metal wear in nominally inert atmospheres.  The cavitation erosion resistance of Nitronic 60 is superior to the austenitic stainless steels as well as high strength duplex (ferritic-austenic) stainless steels.

Nitronic 60 stainless steel is available in bar, master alloy pigs, ingots and forging billets. Other forms available include sheet and strip, castings, extrusions, seamless tubing and plate.
