CARPENTER STAINLESS 18Cr-2Ni-12Mn is a high-manganese, nitrogen-strengthened austenitic stainless steel with an excellent combination of toughness, ductility, strength, fabricability and corrosion resistance. It provides substantially higher yield and tensile strengths than AISI Type 304 and is comparable to Type 304 in corrosion resistance in many environments. It can be machined, cold worked, and welded using the same equipment and methods used for the conventional AISI 300 series austenitic stainless steels. It is nonmagnetic as annealed and after severe cold work. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: SS-366. Producer or source: Carpenter.
