Allvac 13-8 has good fabricability and can be age hardened by a single treatment in the range 510-620 deg C (950-1150 deg F). Cold working prior to aging enhances the aging. This martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel has very good resistance to general corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking. It develops very high strength and exhibits good transverse ductility and toughness in heavy sections. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and shear strength as well as creep. It also includes information on high temperature performance and corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: SS-866.
