Selecting the Right K500 Alloy

Selecting the right alloy for a marine project can mean the difference between successful management, poor performance and ultimately mechanical failure.Alloy K500 is a nickel-copper alloy, precipitation hardenable through additions of aluminium and titanium. This...
Longitudinal vs Transverse Impact testing

Longitudinal vs Transverse Impact testing

The term “longitudinal” or “transverse” refers to whether the grain in the steel in the test piece runs the length of the rectangle (“longitudinal”) or across the width of the rectangle (“transverse”). In an impact test, the test piece is shaped into a rectangle, with...
The Many Faces of MP35N™

The Many Faces of MP35N™

MP35N is a nickel-cobalt alloy with an extensive combination of winning properties- extreme high strength, toughness ductility and superb corrosion resistance, however not all of these properties of MP35N occur at the same time. As a material with a wide range in...

When is T41 not T41, or Durehete 1055™ Equivalent?

When is T41 not T41, or Durehete 1055™ Equivalent?

Quite a few of our customers have asked us for advice when they have been offered “T41” at a “cheap” price. They quite rightly have checked with the experts that the material they have been offered is fit for their purpose. Both BMG-AT41® and Durehete 1055™ are...
Corrosion – Part three

Corrosion – Part three

This is the third in a series of blogs on corrosion and corrosion resistance in our stock grades. The first two blogs (found on our web site) looked at types of corrosion and the steps we take to minimise it, while the second looked at then the factors (particularly...
