15 5ph Stainless Steel Bar Benefits

Forgings made from 15-5 PH steel are available with the fastest lead times in the industry. We can manufacture custom forgings up to 4,000 pounds, from 2.5" to 24" in diameter or thickness, and up to 12' in length, based on your specifications. A forging is ideal for long-run or short-run production, as well as prototyping purposes.

Stainless Steel 15-5 PH Properties _____________

The 15-5 PH stainless steel is a martensitic precipitation hardening steel that offers both high strength as well as high hardness.

Characterization _____________

Precipitation-hardening steels are classified into one of three groups based on their final microstructures after heat treatment, which are determined by the precipitation-hardening process.

Alloy 15-5 PH Stainless Steel Composition _____________

Stainless Steel 15-5 Grade Hardness A tempered stainless steel 15-5 PH can be hardened to Brinell scale hardnesses of up to 420, and Rockwell hardnesses of up to C40 when properly tempered.

Alloy 15-5 PH Stainless Steel Composition _____________

Heat Treating 15-5 PH Alloy Stainless Steel Stainless steel 15-5 can be solution heat treated at approximately 1,900 degrees F/1,038 degrees C. It must be allowed to cool to below 90 degrees F/32 degrees C in order for the martensite transformation to take place completely.

Alloy 15-5 Stainless Steel Machinability The stainless steel 15-5 PH is highly machineable, similar to the stainless steel 304. The machinability of a material improves with an increase in aging temperature.

Benefits of 15 5ph Stainless Steel Bar ___________

A 15 5ph round bar is used in a wide range of industries and applications, including chemical processing, machine construction, and manufacturing, to name just a few.
