CARPENTER STAINLESS No. 5-F is a modification of AISI Type 416 stainless steel and was designed for an optimum combination of machinability and corrosion resistance. It comprises a specially balanced analysis and is essentially non-hardenable. It is recommended for all screw-machine applications, particularly those involving intricate machining operations or where superior finishes are required as-machined. Its uses include valve trim, carburetor needles and many other screw-machine parts. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and tensile properties as well as creep. It also includes information on high temperature performance and corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: SS-275.
