Technical characteristics

Stainless chromium steel 90X18MF is manufactured in accordance with GOST: 5949-75 and 5632-72, as well as technical specifications: 14-1-4628-89 и 14-1-1848-75. Steel 90X18MF is used to produce bars and strips by forging or rolling. Hot deformation is carried out at 1130-950°C followed by tempering at 750°C and cooling. This steel alloy in a hardened state is used in the chemical industry, the production of pumps, cutting tools in the food industry and medicine. The price is the best in this segment of rolled products.

This steel grade is a martensitic alloy. It is melted in induction and open electric arc furnaces as well as in vacuum induction furnaces with final vacuum-arc remelting. Plastic deformation is carried out in the temperature range of 1100-900°С. Sections are produced by drawing, and sheets by rolling. In the case of rapid cooling, cracking is possible. The hardening temperature is 1045 °C and the tempering temperature is 200 °C. Hardening hardens the material as a result of the martensitic transformation. The structure of grained pearlite is given by annealing, after quenching the hardness of steel is 197-207 NV-1. Increasing the quenching temperature increases the proportion of residual austenite, the optimum hardness is reached at 1050 °C.

The method of forging or rolling produces sections and strips of steel, which are used in the medical and food industries. Rolled steel in hardened condition is used in the manufacture of chemical valves, gear pumps multistage pumps for metered delivery of the preparative environment, in the manufacture of cutting tools (according to GOST R 50 328.1-92). Products made of this steel meet high requirements to corrosion resistance and are able to withstand multiple heat treatment that is important for medical instruments. They can be processed in washing machines, they do not lose their properties in chlorinated water.
