15-5 PH is a martensitic precipitation hardened stainless steel favored by the aerospace industry. Its roles in this industry include:
- Stuctural components
- Gears, shafts, and valves
- Engine parts
- Nuclear reactor components
15-5 PH stainless steel consists of 15% chromium, 5% nickel, and has excellent corrosion resistance. It was specifically designed to be stronger than 17-4 steel, its predecessor, and can be further reinforced by undergoing cold heat treatments. In addition to being used in aerospace, it is also utilized in chemical, paper, and food processing industries.
We handle 15-5 PH in a variety of forms: rod, flat bar, plate, sheet/strip, and wire.
